A true classic...an d a sad reminder of the loss of a child of Eric Clapton. :(
Makes me cry every time I hear it, even if it's just the guitar before the song, It just makes me so sad.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Eric. God rest little Conor's soul.
Makes me miss my grandparents . I can't wait to see them behind the pearly white gates. I love you both for eternity
Yes, I am known in Heaven...by many. Love to all my angels, especially one in particular. If you know me, then you know to whom I am referring.
That's one of the coolest song of all
So sad knowing that Eric tragically lost his son to Inspire this beautiful song. Breaks my heart
No tears in Heaven...onl y peace. Heaven is home. We are souls inhabiting this body God calls a tent. (Not permanent). Absent from the body is present with The Lord...If any our anxious or unsure of their existence; understandin g Who Jesus is changes everything. It is assurance of eternity with Our Maker. Have peace in this. Rev Rob

I LOVE this Song was played at my DAD funeral, Thanks ERIC for this song. It has helped my family deal with his death. RIP DADDY 7-7-70.
I love that Eric was able to do this as part of his process of coping with the tragic death of his son, but I have never been able to listen past a few words. I become totally overwhelmed by the thought of losing one's child and simply can't bear to hear the whole thing. To experience such a thing is beyond horrific and I am in awe of someone who can come through something of that magnitude intact. Bless you, Eric.
This song explains a tragedy in Clapton's life: the death of his song for whom it was dedicated to.
Waaaaaaaaaaa a ! ! !
I really fell in love with this song. I introduced it to my students in Japan as a beautiful American song.
