if i don’t be there by morning lyrics – eric clapton

blue skies upon the horizon
private eye is on my trail
and if i don’t be there by morning
you know that i must have spent the night in jail

i got a woman living in l.a
i got a woman waiting for my pay
and if i don’t be there by morning
she know that i must have gone the other way

finding my way back to you girl
lonely and blue, mistreated you
sometimes i think of you girl
is it true that you think of me too?

finding my way back to you girl
lonely and blue, mistreated you
sometimes i think of you girl
is it true that you think of me too?

i left my woman with a twenty dollar bill
i left her waiting, i hope she’s waiting for me still
’cause if i don’t be there by morning
you know that i, i never will

and if i don’t be there by morning
you know that i, i never will
i never will, i never will
i never will, i never will

/ eric clapton lyrics
