Layla Lyrics

What will you do when you get lonely
No one is waiting by your side?
You've been running and hiding much too long
You know it's just your foolish pride

Layla, you got me on my knees
Layla, I'm begging darlin' please
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind?

Tried to give you consolation
Your old man let you down
Like a fool, I fell in love with you
You turned my whole world upside down

Layla, you got me on my knees
Layla, I'm begging darlin' please
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind?

Make the best of the situation
Before I finally go insane
Please don't say we'll never find a way
Or tell me all my love's in vain

Layla, you got me on my knees
Layla, I'm begging darlin' please
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind?

Layla, you got me on my knees
Layla, I'm begging darlin' please
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind?

The beautiful second half of the song was arranged by drummer Jim Gordon. Jim eventually developed schizophrenia and in 1983 he attacked and murdered his mother. He received a sixteen year sentence but I believe he is still under control of the state of California receiving treatment at a guarded facility.

I wrote words to go along with the melody at the end of the song back when I was 16. I still know them by heart, 34 years later. The music at the end, the melody, is timeless. heart-wrenching song
