Here it is by popular demand. This is the main part played by the master
himself. There is a second part too, but you can get that out of this
part. This song is great! I hope you have fun with it too.

1. What'll you do when you get lonely,  No one waiting by your side?
2. Try to gove you consolation, Your old man he let you down.
3. Make the best of the situation, before I finally go insane.

You've been runnin' and hidin' too long.  You know it's just your foolish.
Like a fool, I fell in love with you. You turned my whole world uspside.
Please don't say we'll never find a way. Tell me all my love's in vain.

I can't believe what I just read. Is this guy on crack. I would like to see this guy sit down with Clapton and try to keep up. Everyone has a style and yes his is blues. There is more to Clapton then just the radio songs. I suggest you look into it so YES, ITS JUST YOU. I can only imagine what comes outta this guys amp.
