Go Back Home
Stephen Stills Lyrics

Think I'll go back home
Think I'll go back home
Think I'll go back home
Back where I belong
Think I'll go back home

Nothin' for me here
Nothin' for me here,
Child, no there ain't
Nothin' for me here
People trapped by fear
And you can't get near

Lived with you I felt
Lived with you I felt, child
Lived with you I felt
I was by myself
I was someone else

Babe, come home with me
Babe, come home with me now
Babe, come home with me
And I'll make you see
Yes, I'm gonna set you free

When I woke up this morning
I found that I was alone, yeah
'Til I called your number
They told me there's no one home again
Baby, what does it mean?
Is it like it seems?

Clapton is the lead at 3;36. Wanna know how good Clapton is? Years later when he was with Stills listening to this track Clapton told Stills "man did you ever cook on that solo at the end" To which Stills replied; "that was you". Clapton was at the peak of his heroin addiction  when this was recorded and didn't even remember laying it down.

It's been debatable whether it was Hendrix with Burning Of The Midnight Lamp or Cream with Tales was the first 7' with the wah..

atourdeforce Thank you for the reference. *Stephen Stills – Go Back Home (June of 1970)
Clapton recorded his first solo record between November ‘69 and March ‘70, backed by Delaney & Bonnie’s people, with the stellar appearance of Stephen Stills. In June of 1970 when he started to record his own debut (following the success reaped by Crosby Stills Nash & Young), Clapton returned the favour by appearing on Go Back Home. A song that opens like a kind of jam driven by Stills’ heavy wah until the end when Clapton appears with his fabled guitar Brownie, a Fender Stratocaster which would define this stage of his career (with which he recorded Layla). Despite being in the middle of the start of his heroin addiction, Clapton rips out an amazing solo. Years later, having quit drugs, he got back together with Stills and they listened to this song. Clapton told him, “ Man, you’re really cooking the solo at the end”, to which a surprised Stills had to tell him “That’s you”.

@Lisa Weaver Huh? Tales of Brave Ulysses on Cream's "Disraeli Gears" pre-dated the still record.


Its mentioned here,.....


@Scott Harrell To be fair hes not making it up, steven still is quoted as saying this exact story once upon a tone in an interview. Google it. It fails me how Clapton didnt recognize his own guitar playing but maybe its possible to night recognize it if you dont even remember doing it, I don't know, butvtge story is pretty much accurate.

that buildup is absolutely insane, the constant bass moving along and the guitar lashing out trying to break free and when it does...

Well said Marshall - very!


Been listening to this for 40 + years! Great music survives the passage of time.
