Eric Clapton - When You Got A Good Friend Lyrics




When you got a good friend
That will stay right by your side,
When you got a good friend
That will stay right by your side,
Give her all your spare time,
Love and treat her right.

I mistreated my baby
And I can't see no reason why.
I mistreated my baby
And I can't see no reason why.
Any time I think about it
I just wring my hands and cry.

Wonder could I ever apologize
Or would she sympathize with me?
Would she sympathize with me?
She's a brown-skin woman,
Just as sweet as a girlfriend can be.

Babe, I may be right or wrong.
Babe, it's your opinion,
Well, I may be right or wrong.
Watch your close friend, baby,
Then your enemies can't do you no harm.

When you got a good friend
That will stay right by your side,
When you got a good friend
That will stay right by your side,
Give her all your spare time,
Love and treat her right.

    Ja! "For Robert Johnson"!! das ist Clapton in seinem Blues-Element. Besser geht nicht. Und B.Preston (RiP), Chr. Stainton, Do. Bramhall II, St. Gadd und natürlich Nat. East quellen über vor Spiellaune. Das merkt man schon, wenn die ersten Akkorde klingen. Wow!!!

  41. jerry j

    Love the two guitar play out.

  42. MaabudZ

    It's nice and it's an RJ song but it doesn't bear much resemblance to RJ's version. I was playing along with the Johnson recording and ended up in F# yesterday. I think he was probably working in an E configuration. (there's still that pesky consideration about the proper speed for the RJ recordings.)

    hollowpoint45acp

    You worry about pesky considerations. We'll enjoy this

  43. hansys49

    This is why music like this is best at clubs. I can compare.

  44. Cora Visser

    Eric clapton you are real awesome.

  45. Enrique Aldanondo

    Un verdadero "Amigo es para Siempre".

  46. Stevie Beats

    What a superb performance, im loving this so much its blew my mind, Clapton, Johnson and the band - you are legends

  47. DarkBoomba
