Clapton, Eric - Before You Accuse Me Lyrics




[Chorus:]
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself
You say I've been spending my money on other women
You've been taking money from someone else

I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago
I called your mama 'bout three or four nights ago
Well your mother said "Son"
"Don't call my daughter no more"

[Chorus]

Come back home baby, try my love one more time
Come back home baby, try my love one more time
If I don't go on and quit you
I'm gonna lose my mind

[Chorus]

Clapton, Eric Before You Accuse Me Comments
  1. luis juarez

    Quedo mejor con los CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL

  2. Riley Phoenix

    Yo escuche esta canción en la radio y me encanto. Gran canción del gran Eric Clapton.

  3. Mike J

    A great tune that was written and recorded by Bo Diddley in 1957. Clapton does him right proud, eh.

  4. Starr Rivers

    This is good, but I just heard Eric Burdon. His voice is a little better for this song.

  5. Tim Tremblay

    Authentic Blues sound Clapton is, unlike SRV with loaded effects. Just sayin'

  6. Boogie Mann

    One of the best rock n roll numbers you will EVER listen to. Rock and fucking roll

  7. TheGr8one1022

    RIP Jeffrey Epstein. You'll be missed.

    WastrelWay

    LOL. He was a very intelligent fellow by all accounts; he just had a jones for young girls. But, he should have had the Grateful Dead version from "Hundred Year Hall" instead of this. Or even better, the original by Bo Diddley.

  8. Michael Miller

    Some grow up...some don't

  9. Elizabeth Stallo

    What A Great Song!!

  10. Anna Vajda

    I don't care what you do Clapton you're not my favourite.

    Athol Smith

    I doubt that you're on his fan list and your opinion will lose him any sleep.

    Anna Vajda

    @Athol Smith well if he wasn't spending his money buying other women clothes she probably would not have to take money from someone else. Knopfler is a better guitarist anyway imo.

    Athol Smith

    @Anna Vajda I agree Knopfler is a great guitarist, but he and Clapton have totally different styles and preferences so an apples-with-apples comparison of the two is irrelevant. Clapton's roots are in the blues.

  11. Ramon Oliva riffo

    Master de master..😎

  12. Peter Axelsson

    An Eddie Boyd tune :-)

    J.D. O

    Bo Diddley, actually. Boyd’s great too, though.

  13. iplayloud2

    At his age now the daughters say "Don't call my Momma no more" 😂

  14. Henrique Azevedo

    Accuse me I am influenced, lol
    Before you accuse me, check
    The mirror! Clapton rules

  15. Adam Falk

    só para os bons!!!
    WOW! now this is an eric clapton original!
    Eric sure can pluck those strings.

    paul anthony

    It’s actually a Bo Diddley original

  16. Keith McCaughey

    WOW! now this is an eric clapton original!
    Accuse me I am influenced, lol
    God Bless the Blues!

    Gabe Morehouse

    Bo Diddley wrote this song

  17. Quê Hương Việt Nam

    Oye cantinero, sírvame una copa por favorrr
    God Bless the Blues!

  18. Adrian Boyt

    só para os bons!!!

  19. Josie Springfield

    I just love being accused great song.

  20. Moe Yonkin

    Come back home baby, Try my love one MOE time!

  21. Carlos Lou Franco

    Original Creedence song right??

    Jos Zomer

    Nope, it was written by Bo Diddley in 1957. Creedence did a cover of it.

    Phillip Lavinus

    Me and this song are the same age

  22. Rey Ateo

    Ok, but I think that CCR's version is tastier and groovier than this.

    Anna Vajda

    Yeah I was raised on that version I'm loyal to CCR. Fogerty was such a perfectionist.

    George Sawtooth

    I'll take Clapton any day over CCR. John Fogerty is a hypocrite because he talks against fossil fuels but spent his life taking advantage of fossil fuels....just like how Boulderites cry about fossil fuels while driving around in gas guzzling SUV's.

  23. landyachtfan79

    "You say I'm spendin' my money on other women
    You're takin' money from someone else........"

  31. Crystal Regan

    Love the blues..Eric Clapton is #1 blues guitarist...That was a tough call with Stevie Ray..Joe Bonamassa...BB King 👑..etc..those are my personal picks but Eric I factor in songs solo run jams....LOVE THE BLUES BABY!

    Lord Harry Balls

    Eric Clapton said Stevie was better than him .stevie Ray is a God on the guitar no one is better .the battle of heaven and hell was over learning how to play like Stevie

    David Ferrara

  56. Israel Uvita

    Antes de que me acusen, echa un vistazo a ti mismo
    Antes de que me acusen, echa un vistazo a ti mismo
    Que decir que he estado gastando mi dinero en otras mujeres
    Tú has estado tomando el dinero de otra persona

    Llamé a su mamá combate hace tres o cuatro noches
    Llamé a su mamá combate hace tres o cuatro noches
    Así que su madre le dijo "hijo"
    "No llames a mi hija no más"

    Antes de que me acusen, echa un vistazo a ti mismo
    Antes de que me acusen, echa un vistazo a ti mismo
    Que decir que he estado gastando mi dinero en otras mujeres
    Tú has estado tomando el dinero de otra persona

    Vuelve bebé a casa, prueba mi amor una vez más
    Vuelve bebé a casa, prueba mi amor una vez más
    Si no voy a dejar de fumar y que
    Voy a perder la cabeza

    Antes de que me acusen, echa un vistazo a ti mismo
    Que decir que he estado gastando mi dinero en otras mujeres
    Tú has estado tomando el dinero de otra persona

  57. Michel Bilodeau

    Eric sure can pluck those strings.

  58. Billy Williams

    I like Clapton with Cream & his blues stuff like this, but not the top 40 hits.

  59. Bartenational Bart - email - nationwide

    Matthew 7 Judge not that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shell be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brothers eye, but considerast not the beam that is in thine own eye? God Bless Music is the Key Amen

    Eugene Grant-Sinclair

    Truth be told, I abore bible thumpers. That being said, You go on do what you do brother. This is the place to express your feelings in that way and more power to ya. I do hate all the amens and so forth but that was a very cognizant expression and I support you on that.

    Eugene Grant-Sinclair

    FYI what I or anyone else doesn't like, tell to kiss your .... ?whatever. I am not a christian but I get what was said and dislike the negative replies. Don't let them change you.

    Eugene Grant-Sinclair

    PS Real mean don't need to hide who they are when they speak. Your pic is in your avatar, my name and pic are in mine. I pay much more attention to people who don't disguise themselves.

    nomadpreacher

    God know how we are and there is no hiding from that. God knows what is in your heart and what your going to do tomorrow. There is no getting away from that.I believe Jesus Christ died and rose from the grave. Because I believe and repent I am saved too. God Bless nomadpreacher.com

    +Mohd Khairul Robert Cray

    Mohd Khairul

    thanks my friend.. noted.

  70. Marcus DaGraca

    Accuse me I am influenced, lol

  71. LoveurSound

    EC is the man, always will be.

  72. Matthew Thomson

    Since the song was written in 1957, I think it is more likely that Bo Diddley influenced Bob Marley!

  73. Bush Hippie

    Sounds a lot like Bob Marley's "Judge Not" I wouldn't be surprised if Clapton was influenced by that one as well. Love it!

    David Ferrara

    Uh, he didn't write it

  74. Trairong Bunyasiriphant

    agreed!

  75. Caandy

    I love this song
