"I Looked Away" lyrics - DEREK AND THE DOMINOS

"I Looked Away"
(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]
