INTRO:
Lick 1
Lick 2  (2 x)

C#m                        G#m
What will you do when you get lonely
C#m     C7     D7           E7
And nobody's waiting by your side
F#m          B           E               A
You've been running and hiding much too long,
F#m            B5                 E7
You know it's just your foolish pride.


CHORUS:
 Nc  Dm C Bb A  G#m  C   A  C   Dm
   Layla,      you got me on my knees.
Nc  Dm C Bb A  G#m  C   A  C   Dm
  Layla,      I'm begging darling please.
Nc  Dm C Bb A  G#m  C   A  C   Dm
  Layla,         darling won't you ease my worried mind.

C#m                        G#m
Tried to give you consolation,
C#m     C7     D7           E7
Your old man won't let you down
F#m          B           E               A
Like a fool, I fell in love with you,
F#m            B5                 E7
Turned the whole world upside down
        
CHORUS

C#m                        G#m
Let's make the best of the situation
C#m     C7     D7           E7
Before I finally go insane.
F#m          B           E               A
Please don't say we'll never find a way
F#m            B5                 E7
And tell me all my loves in vain
