Lord, the little woman I'm lovin' wouldn't have no right to pray

And I went to the mountain, lookin' far as my eyes could see
And I went to the mountain, lookin' far as my eyes could see
Some other man got my woman and the lonesome blues got me

Had to fold my armes and I slowly walked away
Had to fold my armes and I slowly walked away
And I said in my mind, Yo' trouble gon' come someday

And I rolled and I tumbled and I cried the whole night long
And I rolled and I tumbled and I cried the whole night long
Boy, I woke up this mornin', my biscuit roller gone

Now run here baby, set down on my knee
Now run here baby, set down on my knee
I wanna tell you all about the way they treated me

He is one of the most successful musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries,[1] garnering an unprecedented three inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (The Yardbirds, Cream, and solo). Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time[2], Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"[3] and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[4]

Clapton is credited as an innovator in several phases of his career, which have included blues-rock (with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds) and psychedelic rock (with Cream). Clapton has also achieved great chart success in genres ranging from Delta blues (Me and Mr. Johnson) to pop ("Change the World") and reggae (Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff"). Clapton also achieved fame with Derek and the Dominos through the hit song "Layla".
