Layla Chords
Tabber: Matt Mason
Artist: Clapton

[Intro] (same as chorus)

Am F G
Am F G

Abm                                     E       
What'll you do when you get lonely
Abm                                     B 
And nobody's waiting by your side? 
C#m             F#              B                       E
You've been running and hiding much too long. 
C#m             F#              B       
You know it's just your foolish pride. 

Am      F       G                       Am      
Layla, you've got me on my knees. 
Am      F       G                       Am
Layla, I'm begging, darling please. 
Am      F       G               Am              F       G
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind. 

I tried to give you consolation 
When your old man had let you down. 
Like a fool, I fell in love with you, 
Turned my whole world upside down. 


Let's make the best of the situation 
Before I finally go insane. 
Please don't say we'll never find a way 
And tell me all my love's in vain.

Yes it is in D instead of A. Start the 1st Lick on open A to C and then open D to F, once you hear the phrasing you will recognize it. I'm a keyboard player who also plays Guitar and I've seen a lot of Charts in the wrong key,it's the way a sheet music maker can release a song without getting sued by a publisher.
