I Looked Away
Derek and the Dominos Lyrics


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.
First 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.
But I looked away
And she ran away from me today;
I'm such a lonely man.

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.

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.

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.

But I looked away
And she ran away from me today,
I'm such a lonely man.

This was a 4th Ave staple with uncle Jack a d milo the cat....10 grams for 280 and you could see the corner of the brick when it arrived....a Columbian connection

Paul Curtis

all good tracks,

Rob Blair

This is one of my favourite songs on the album. Although that is akin to trying to choose a favourite child. The whole album is an absolute gem. The whole thing is incredible

@Sublime Music Channel 100%. These songs would not be as soulful without his voice & piano.

@Tom O'Connor Right up there with ABB Live at Fillmore East, Hotel California, Rumours, & Abandoned Luncheonette for me. I keep going back to them.

Melissa Tyree
