WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS (Eric Clapton) Lyrics



George Harrison wrote "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" after his return from India, where the Beatles had been studying Transcendental Meditation under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi during the spring of 1968. The visit had allowed Harrison to re-engage with the guitar as his primary instrument, after focusing on the Indian sitar for the previous two years,[7] and also marked the start of a prolific period for him as a songwriter.[8][9] Inspiration for the song came to him when he was visiting his parents in Warrington, Cheshire, and he began reading the I Ching, or "The Book of Changes".[6] As Harrison put it, "[the book] seemed to me to be based on the Eastern concept that everything is relative to everything else, as opposed to the Western view that things are merely coincidental."[10] Embracing this idea of relativism, he committed to writing a song based on the first words he saw upon opening a book, which happened to be "gently weeps".[11] Harrison continued to work on the lyrics after this initial writing session.[10]




WHILE MY GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS (Eric Clapton) Lyrics



I look at you all see the love there that's sleepingWhile my guitar gently weepsI look at the floor and I see it needs sweepingStill my guitar gently weepsI don't know why nobody told youHow to unfold your loveI don't know how someone controlled youThey bought and sold youI look at the world and I notice it's turningWhile my guitar gently weepsEvery mistake, we must surely be learningStill my guitar gently weepsI don't know how you were divertedYou were perverted tooI don't know how you were invertedNo one alerted you 041b061a72
