   While My Guitar Gently Weeps
by John T. Marck



While My Guitar Gently Weeps

George Harrison

George was at this time enthralled with reading I Ching, and decided to apply its principles of chance into his writing. While at his parents' home, he picked a book from a shelf, and told himself that he would write a song based on the novel's first words. They were "gently weeps," thus he wrote this song around and with those words. The famous guitar solo herein was played by Eric Clapton, then a member of the group, Cream. It was recorded on September 5 and 6, 1968.

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 need sweeping,

Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you,

How to unfold you 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

I look at you all, Still my guitar gently weeps
