Pid plach gitary moyeyi #1 (While My Guitar Gently Weeps #1)

Дивлюсь, як у всіх вас любов затихає
Під плач гітари моєї.
Дивлюсь, що з підлог бруд давно не змітають,
В тім плач гітари моєї.

Не знаю як, й ніхто не скаже,
Любов вдихнути в вас.
Можливо хтось, одного разу,
Вас купить і продасть.

Я дивлюся на світ, не втомивсь він крутитись
Під плач гітари моєї.
На кожній помилці повинні ми вчитись,
В тім плач гітари моєї.

Не знаю чим вас спокусили,
Як заманили всіх.
Не знаю, що вас так змінило
Й ніхто не застеріг.

Я дивлюсь з-за куліс, як ви граєте ролі
Під плач гітари моєї.
Я даремно сиджу, дні летять мимоволі,
В тім плач гітари моєї.

While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Song by George Harrison, The Beatles)

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 need sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

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

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 guitargently weeps

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

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

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is a Beatles song from the eponymous album (also known as "the White Album"). The author of the words and music of George Harrison.

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is included in the list of the 500 greatest songs of Rolling Stone magazine at number 135, and the list of 100 best guitar songs at number 7.

The inspiration came to George Harrison when he was reading the Book of changes. Later he said that, thinking about the idea of relativism in Asian culture, opened a random book and saw the words "gently weeps", immediately began to compose the song.

The song initially did not arouse much interest among other members of the group. Recorded were several options, including purely acoustic and more electronic. None of them was suitable for the album. The solo was performed by the Harrison, John Lennon — but she didn't sound the way we would like.

During the recording of "The Beatles" (aka "the White Album"), Harrison, Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Ringo Starr had hardly moved each other.

A little to lighten the mood, Harrison asked his friend Clapton to play his new song.

On the words Beatles, Clapton presence cleared the air of tension in the group, which arose in the twilight of their creativity.

September 6, 1968, guitarist Eric Clapton entered the Studio Abbey Road in London to record a guitar on a new song The Beatles — "While My Guitar Gently Weeps".

Clapton was first not thrilled about the idea, replying: "Nobody ever plays on the Beatles".

"So what?,— He said Harrison Is my song".

"Exempt" from the solo party, Harrison performed the vocal part and the party of the rhythm guitars in this song.
