Lyrics

Thinkin' 'bout the times you drove in my car.
Thinkin' that I might have drove you too far.
And I'm thinkin' 'bout the love that you laid on my table.

I told you not to wander 'round in the dark.

In some parallel universe where time is fluid George and Eric are expanding their conscious and passing Patti back and forth this great song is playing. Sweet.

So Clapton and Harrison both ended up married to the same woman,they once referred to each other as "Husbands -in- law".

Badge does sound, to me, like Harrison. While My Guitar Gently Weeps sounds like Clapton to me.

Badge is my all time favorite!! Incredible story about the creation of it - lots of 'masters' involved!!

One of my favorite songs and bands. I hate today's music.

Ever notice the similarity in the "coda" between Badge and It Don't Come Easy? GEORGE!!!

Love the way the song just sort of ends.

According to Clapton the title was from his mis-reading of Harrison's hand-writing . Harrison wrote "bridge".

Also according to Clapton many of the lyrics were provided by Ringo Starr throwing out rhyming nonsense replies to lines by Clapton and Harrison. Clapton seemed to have fond memories of the writing session.

Great song, love that coda chord in the middle - played to an extreme in the 2005 live version. We certainly don't have songwriters like this around anymore.
