C#m                            G#
 What will you do when you get lonely?
C#m     C       D       E7
 No one waiting by your side
F#m          B        E               A
 You've been running, hiding much too long
F#m            B                 E 
 You know it's just your foolish pride

A  Dm Bb   C            Dm 
Layla, you got me on my knees,
      Bb C                Dm 
Layla,   begging darling, please
      Bb C                 Dm                     Bb  C 
Layla,   darling won't you ease my worried mind

C#m                 G#
 Tried to give consolation
C#m            C       D       E7
 When your old man had let you down
F#m     B       E                 A
 Like a fool, I fell in love with you
F#m            B                  E 
 You turned my whole world upside down

A  Dm Bb   C            Dm 
Layla, you got me on my knees,
      Bb C                Dm 
Layla,   begging darling, please
      Bb C                 Dm                     Bb  C 
Layla,   darling won't you ease my worried mind

C#m                       G#
 Make the best of the situation,
C#m       C       D    E7
 Before I finally go insane
F#m           B         E            A
 Please don't say we'll never find a way
F#m      B                E 
 Tell me all my love's in vain

A  Dm Bb   C            Dm 
Layla, you got me on my knees,
      Bb C                Dm 
Layla,   begging darling, please
      Bb C                 Dm                     Bb  C  Dm
Layla,   darling won't you ease my worried mind
Layla, you got me on my knees, 
Layla, begging darling, please
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind

Layla, begging darling, please
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind
Layla, you got me on my knees, 
Layla, begging darling, please
Layla, darling won't you ease my worried mind
