While My Guitar Gently Weeps

George Harrison
Album: The Beatles (The White Album)

BUY THIS CD AT AMAZON.COM


I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps
I don't know why nobody told you how to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you.

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps
I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you.

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
Look at you all...
Still my guitar gently weeps.

Information

George wrote this when he was reading "I Ching", a Chineese book of changes. The first words that he came across were "gently weeps" so he based his song on it. Eric Clapton played lead guitar in the song because George was unhappy with the amount of support he was receiving from the other Beatles.
