Clapton, Eric - Lay Down Sally Lyrics

There is nothing that is wrong
In wanting you to stay here with me.
I know you've got somewhere to go,
But won't you make yourself at home and stay with me?
And don't you ever leave.

Lay down, Sally, and rest you in my arms.
Don't you think you want someone to talk to?
Lay down, Sally, no need to leave so soon.
I've been trying all night long just to talk to you.

The sun ain't nearly on the rise
And we still got the moon and stars above.
Underneath the velvet skies,
Love is all that matters. Won't you stay with me?
And don't you ever leave.


I long to see the morning light
Coloring your face so dreamily.
So don't you go and say goodbye,
You can lay your worries down and stay with me.
And don't you ever leave.

[Chorus 2x]

  2. South Texas Brush Country Boy

    Josey!!!! Josey Wales!!!! - look 😱 it's Josey!?!? Josey Wales!?!? 🔫😨🔫

  3. James Miles

    Back in the day, one of the boys would always crash out after some shots/bong loads on the couch. The others and myself made it a tradition to play this when he crashed. We all called him Sally lol. Good times I miss them daze

  4. Caroline Anderton

    Let's get on down with this peeps.

  5. Mr. Duckford

    I’m only here because we recently watched August: Osage County in my theatre class and the final exam is tomorrow and why not.

    SLOWHAND !! 👏👏👏👏👌

    FlamQ Dbltap

    Bradkey Williams Lots of people have no idea where that nickname came from. In Clapton’s early days before lots of roadies and techs, when he would break a string it took a few minutes to put one back on. The fans would patiently wait while clapping slow. 👍🏻 that’s been a long time ago and now.

    Bradkey Williams

    @FlamQ Dbltap - HEY, Good 2 know...
    Thanks !!

  7. Oliver

    Too bad he got old, began thinking acoustic was better, and started charging 300 a ticket. Wish I could've seen young Clapton.

    @Knuckle Berry Jk lmao.

    Knuckle Berry

    @Teh Gundulf lol good one

  36. Tommy Goode

    Clapton was awesome. So was his drug habit. He spent about $16,000 a week on just heroin at one point in his life. That's awesome. He also is the only guy ever to perform laying down on stage because he was too drunk. That is quite a few achievements my friend.

  37. Randy Johnson

    Great song for getting a good buzz

  38. Hossein Sigari

    In my opinion and taste his "old hand" album was his BESTEST.

  75. rap

    My daddy used to pick me up and dance with me to this..I was 4 years old and seems like it was just yesterday

  76. Mo Go

    This beat is excellent and smooth, however.

  77. Mo Go

    Eric Clapton is NOT God btw.

    Chozeh Abaddon

    Dude... I think God would get it. It's OK. :)

  78. Mark Dm

    I can not say I ever liked a Clapton song till I heard this one.

  79. Jeremy Sickx

    Goes ham

  80. Vince Schauf

    what is amazing about this song is that there's no blistering, spellbinding guitar solo, no wa-wa peddle, but you get this awesome song with great drums that kind of makes the whole song

  81. striphose

    Clapton is God!

  82. Pandora

    Went to a wedding in Inglewood. 90 minutes of beautiful funk. Just wanted one Clapton song. Begged the DJ. Got this song and I was shocked that the floor cleared. My loving husband danced with me all alone. .

  83. Tony Bursalian

    My fav from Clapton....Just gets my body moving everytime

  84. pretorious700

    Hmmm, sounds like Eric may have been listening to JJ Cale.


    pretorious700 he admits to being mentored and sampled from JJ.

  85. Gavsea

    Overrated guitarist. Possibly.

  86. iansanesmitty Smith

    sally didnt even put out arh

  87. Steve Lee

    Love this song. WORSHIP Clapton. But for the love of GOD, Eric-- take a couple of hours & sit down and remix it without the silly Rhodes ! No insult to whoever pliayed the kybd part - great player. But i just can't take the sound of a fendet Rhodes(sp?) seriously, in 2019, esp. when it's mixed so far up front. I'm sure E.C. has considered this. I know, "boo, BOO, leave your negativities out, dude!" Don't mean to offend anyone. Just sayin' .....

  88. Kittie Win

    I met Eric. He's nice.

  89. Pete Wolf

    This 1 always make me rock!!! The guitar riffs R badass...

  90. Fred Moore

    He wishes that he is as good as Knopfler...

  91. Dominick Borgese

    Eric has a way to Lay Down Sally, you think. All the stars above. Eric is one of them. Forget Orion.

  92. LukesExclusive Place

    thank you mr clapton

  93. Fred Moore

    Old. Like me...

  94. MegaJdizzle27

    Heard he wrote this about his dog

  95. Bryan D

    If you love the drums listen to Back In Baby's Arms by Patsy Cline ;)

  96. whattheheck1000

    This song reminds me of being in a tumble dryer with broken glass and vomit.
