[Am]  [Am7/G]  [Am6/F#]  [Fmaj7]
  [Am]  [G]  [D]  [E7]

I [Am] look at you [Am7/G] all, see the [Am6/F#] love there that's [Fmaj7]
[Am] While my gui[G]tar gently [D] weeps [E7]
I [Am] look at the [Am7/G] floor and I [Am6/F#] see it needs [Fmaj7] sweeping
[Am] Still my gui[G]tar gently [C] weeps [E7]

[A] I don't know [C#m] why [F#m] nobody [C#m] told you
[Bm] How to unfold your [E7] love
[A] I don't know [C#m] how [F#m] someone cont[C#m]rolled you
[Bm] They bought and sold [E7] you.

I [Am] look at the [Am7/G] world and I [Am6/F#] notice it's [Fmaj7] turning
[Am] While my gui[G]tar gently [D] weeps [E7]
With [Am] every mis[Am7/G]take we must [Am6/F#] surely be [Fmaj7] learning
[Am] Still my gui[G]tar gently [C] weeps [E7]

Solo on Verse  (transcribed at end)

[A] I don't know [C#m] how [F#m] you were di[C#m]verted
[Bm] You were perverted too [E7]
[A] I don't know [C#m] how [F#m] you were in[C#m]verted
[Bm] No one alerted you. [E7]

I [Am] look at you [Am7/G] all see the [Am6/F#] love there that's [Fmaj7]
[Am] While my gui[G]tar gently [D] weeps [E7]
[Am] Look at you [Am7/G] all . . .  [Am6/F#]  [Fmaj7]
[Am] Still my gui[G]tar gently [C] weeps. [E7]

About the artist behind While My Guitar:

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".
