I Looked Away

by Eric Clapton and Bobby Whitlock

She took my hand
And tried to make me understand
That she would always be there,

But I looked away
And she ran away from me today;
I'm such a lonely man.

It came as no surprise to me
That she'd leave me in misery.
It seemed like only yesterday
She made a vow that she'd never walk away.

Repeat First Verse

Repeat Second Verse

And if it seemed a sin
To love another man's woman, baby,
I guess I'll keep on sinning
Loving her, Lord, till my very last day.

Repeat Second Verse
