While My Guitar Gently Weeps
The Jeff Healey Band Lyrics


When 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
But still my guitar gently weeps

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

And I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
From every mistake we must surely be learning
Yes, but still my guitar gently weeps (hey-hey)

I don't know why you were diverted
You were perverted too
And I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you (hey, don't know you know)

When I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
And when I look at you all
Yes, but still my guitar gently weeps (oh, no-no)

Yeah, the guitar gently weeps
Oh, it weeps, oh, it weeps, oh

And it's weeping, oh (oh-oh)

Keep on, keep on

Yeah

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

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

Well...

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

I look at you all, see the love there that's sleeping
[LOVE version:] I look from the wings at the play you are staging.
While my guitar gently weeps
Look at you all
[LOVE version:] As I'm sitting here doing nothing but aging
Still my guitar gently weeps

A guitarist of this calibre is wonderful. A blind guitarist? Well, that's quite simply, magical. RIP Jeff, you are missed.

Pat Jones

Phil Keaggy also does a good cover... with 9 fingers!

A true Canadian legend

Lauren Healey

I love to sit here and 'pretend' that I'm related to this legend...

@Caroline Moodie This is why I love the internet 😂 thanks for the information, it's been pretty much a mystery outside the immediate adopting family members and I don't even know if they knew, hard to keep in touch as my dad's side span from Windsor out to Indiana.

No joke, I found out that I am related to him today. I knew angel eyes so I decided to check out his other songs, he is my second cousin on my dad’s side. He was adopted out of the family because his mother was very young.

Jeff Healey was born in America but was moved to Canada at a young age by his adopted parents, he went to W.Ross Macdonald the same school I went to, he was actually adopted on my father's side of the family by some cousins. As proud as I am to say he's technically in my family tree, there is no actual blood relation as I believe no one knows who his birth parents are. My dad however did get him to play for either a Claire College fundraiser my mum set up or a retreat setup by the Opeongo High school student council for an end of the year celebration of some sort. Pops got to be part of Jeff's security detail .

Your the dream lady he never met.
