Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton & Jimmy Page - Layla (HQ ARMS Concert 1983)



The ARMS Charity Concerts were a series of charitable rock concerts in support of Action into Research for Multiple Sclerosis in 1983. The first (and initially planned to be the only) event took place at the Royal Albert Hall on September 20, 1983, with subsequent dates occurring in the United States, with slightly different lineups of musicians.


The idea for hosting the concert was envisaged by Ronnie Lane, ex-bassist for Small Faces and Faces, himself a casualty of multiple sclerosis. The concert was billed as The Ronnie Lane Appeal for ARMS and featured a star-studded line-up of British musicians, including Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Steve Winwood, Andy Fairweather Low, Bill Wyman, Kenney Jones, Charlie Watts and Ray Cooper. The concert was particularly notable in the fact that it was the first occasion on which Clapton, Beck and Page, each a former lead guitarist for The Yardbirds, had performed together on stage.





Lyrics


What'll you do when you get lonely?

And nobody's waiting by your side?

You've been running and hiding much too long

You know it's just your foolish pride


Layla

You've got me on my knees, Layla

I'm begging, darling please, Layla

Darling won't you ease my worried mind


I tried to give you consolation

When your old man had let you down

Like a fool, I fell in love with you

You've turned my whole world upside down


Layla

You've got me on my knees, Layla

I'm begging, darling please, Layla

Darling won't you ease my worried mind


Let's make the best of the situation

Before I finally go insane

Please don't say, we'll never find a way

And tell me all my love's in vain


Layla

You've got me on my knees, Layla

I'm begging, darling please, Layla

Darling won't you ease my worried mind


Layla

You've got me on my knees, Layla

I'm begging, darling please, Layla

Darling won't you ease my worried mind


[Guitar solo]


Layla

You've got me on my knees, Layla

I'm begging, darling please, Layla

Darling won't you ease my worried mind
