Song: While My guitar Gently Weeps (Acoustic)
Artist: George Harrison
Transcribed by: Richard B.
Also when you come to the end of the verse and the chorus, you
will come across something like this:  F (Dshape).
This means play an F Chord, but with a D Barre chord shape.
This is how it sounds in the song.
Em(Am) means exactly the same thing; play the Em Chord
with an Am Barre Chord shape.

[Chorus 1]
Em(Am)        Bm(Dm)  Em(Am)   Bm(Dm)
 I don't know why     nobody   told you
Dm(Am)              D(A)
 How to unfold your love
Em(Am)        Bm(Dm)  Em (Am)    Bm(Dm)
 I don't know how     someone controlled you
Dm(Am)                D(A)
 They bought and sold you.

[Chorus 2]
Em(Am)        Bm(Dm)  Em(Am)     Bm(Dm)
 I don't know how     you were diverted
Dm(Am)              D(A)
 You were perverted too
Em(Bm)        Bm(Dm)  Em(Am)     Bm(Dm)
 I don't know how     you were inverted
Dm(Am)          D(A)
 No one elated you.

[Lyrics]
[Verse 1]
I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you

[Verse 2]
I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one elated you

[Verse 3]
I look from the wings at the play you are staging
While my guitar gently weeps
As I'm sitting here doing nothing but aging
Still my guitar gently weeps

Incorrect. He uses a capo on the 5th fret. This is horrible man.

Nope... This is very simple... A Beatle makes songs that are easy to play, not such as this mental chore...

JJK your a knob. this is a great version to play, especially on acoustic. this song is easy to play, alot easier then the travis styled version IMO. learn to play guitar before you claim shit.
