Versuri:

I look at you all see the love there that’s sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it need sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don’t know why nobody told you
how to unfold you love
I don’t know how someone controlled you
they bought and sold you

I look at the world and I notice it’s turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don’t know how you were diverted
you were perverted too
I don’t know how you were inverted
no one alerted you

I look at you all see the love there that’s sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps

Oh, oh, oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
yeah yeah yeah yeah


While My Guitar Gently Weeps este o pies[ compusă de George Harrison şi înregistrată de The Beatles pe dublul album The Beatles, cunoscut şi sub numele The White Album în 1968.

În legătură cu inspiraţia scrierii acestei piese, Harrison a spus:

„I wrote „While My Guitar Gently Weeps” at my mother’s house in Warrington. I was thinking about the Chinese I Ching, the Book of Changes… The Eastern concept is that whatever happens is all meant to be, and that there’s no such thing as coincidence – every little item that’s going down has a purpose.”

„While My Guitar Gently Weeps” was a simple study based on that theory. I decided to write a song based on the first thing I saw upon opening any book – as it would be a relative to that moment, at that time. I picked up a book at random, opened it, saw ‘gently weeps’, then laid the book down again and started the song.”

Piesa a ajuns pe locul 135 în topul 500 Greatest Songs of All Time al revistei Rolling Stones, pe locul 7 în topul 100 Greatest Songs of  All Time al aceleiaşi reviste şi pe locul 10 în topul The Beatles 100 Greatest Songs.
