Layla (Unplugged Live)

Lyrics

What'll you do when you get lonely
And nobody's waiting by your side?
You've been running and hiding much too long.
You know it's just your foolish pride.

Someday Eric Clapton, George Harrison and Pattie Boyd will be together again chatting about the backstory for Layla. The original electric version is a masterpiece. The stripped down acoustic version on Unplugged is one heck of a re-interpret a t i o n .

Crunchtheall i g a t o r it's probably because the original was brought out in the 70s when Clapton was in Derek and the dominos.

He never seems to amaze me always right on with words to his songs and oh so real like many years ago when his son conner accidentally fell out x wifes widow(may be rest in peace)it was the same time I lost my best friend and that was my dad when I was on way to say the final good bye and prayers that April morning 22 years ago tears in heaven came on man I thought he wrote that song just for me... something surely I have never Thank you eric clapton

This was performed in 1992. How is it classic rock?

I just realized that in my previous post, I used incorrect grammar at at least one point. I'll leave you all to figure out what it is. Not that you care.

Jet - not ironic. Harrison & Clapton were best friends!! Quote: if she's going to go elsewhere I'd rather it b with u!! Some man that Harrison & in so many ways.

Ironic? This came on my George Harrison station.

I personally like the original more. This is a little too jazzy for my tastes. I do agree with everyone who says his vocals are better here. I have to say though, the riff on electric guitar is the best. By the way, there was someone in my English class named Leila last year, and the teacher always sung this during role call, despite the difference in spelling. I apologize for my long comment, which has been made longer by this sentence.

Don't read this, because it actually works.You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday, by the love of your life.Tomorro w will be the best day of your life. However, if you don't post this, you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this, don't stop.This is so scary. Post this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done, press f6 and your lovers name will come up on the screen .This is so scary, because it works.
