Verse 1

D       G                 D
Upon my word what does it mean?
      G             D
Is it love or is it me
              A
That makes me change so suddenly
             Bm            G         D  G
From looking out to feeling free?

Verse 2

D          G           D
I sit here lying in my bed
          G             D
Wondering what it was I said
             A
That made me think I lost my head
              Bm              G        D  Bm
When I knew I lost my heart instead

Chorus

Bm        G              D
won't you please read my signs
     Bm
Be a gypsy
        G              D            Bm
Tell me what I hope to find deep within me
        G               D
Because you can find my mind
          Bm           G
Please be with me

Verse 3

D          G                  D
Of all the better things I've heard
       G                D
Loving you has made the words
            A
And all the rest seem so absurd
              Bm                      G         D Bm
'Cause in the end it all comes out I'm sure

Chorus

Bm        G              D
Won't you please read my signs
     Bm
Be a gypsy
        G              D            Bm
Tell me what I hope to find deep within me
        G               D
Because you can find my mind
          Bm           G
Please be with me

End on G

About the artist behind Please Be With Me:

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE (born 30 March 1945), is a English blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer. 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]

Although Clapton's musical style has varied throughout his career, it has always remained rooted in the blues. 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".
