Bell Bottom Blues
Derek and the Dominos Lyrics


Bell bottom blues, you made me cry
I don't want to lose this feeling
And if I could choose a place to die
It would be in your arms

Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?
Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?
I'd gladly do it because
I don't want to fade away
Give me one more day, please
I don't want to fade away
In your heart I want to stay

It's all wrong, but it's all right
The way that you treat me baby
Once I was strong but I lost the fight
You won't find a better loser

Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?
Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?
I'd gladly do it because
I don't want to fade away
Give me one more day, please
I don't want to fade away
In your heart I want to stay

Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?
Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?
I'd gladly do it 'cause
I don't want to fade away
Give me one more day, please
I don't want to fade away
In your heart I want to stay

Bell bottom blues, don't say goodbye
I'm sure we're gonna meet again
And if we do, don't you be surprised
If you find me with another lover

Do you want to see me crawl across the floor to you?
Do you want to hear me beg you to take me back?
I'd gladly do it 'cause
I don't want to fade away
Give me one more day, please
I don't want to fade away
In your heart I want to stay

I don't want to fade away
Give me one more day please
I don't want to fade away
In your heart I want to stay

I don't want to fade away
Give me one more day please
I don't want to fade away
In your heart I want to stay

Something the casual listener may not appreciate is the genius of Jim Gordons simple but thoughtful drumming work on this track. The verses are played "backwards" in contrast to conventional playing of the kick drum on the "1" & "3" beats and snare on "2" & "4" beats. Then he "corrects" or at least reverses this backwards approach on the choruses to provide a subliminal yet uplifting contrast that I feel draws the listener in closer to the raw emotional core of the song.

Outstanding observation my friend

Scotty Ennis

Very unfortunate they only recorded one album. Very underrated and overlooked band. Gosh the possibilities.....

Brian Van Camp

@Joseph Felice I heard from a reliable source that Albert King once told a newly hired drummer: "When I'm singing stay on the high hat, when I'm soloing stay on the ride, and as far as I'm concerned you can leave those tom toms in the van!"

Joseph Felice

Not to be a negative Nate, but I think the toms during the chorus are little too distracting and don't sound like part of the percussion track. Sounds like a weird punch in.
