The Beatles - While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Acoustic Version) (1968)

Ok this acoustic version of The Beatles song, While My Guitar Gently Weeps appeared on their you tube page yesterday, i thought you all might to take a listen. The released of this video coincides with the forth coming release of the 50th anniversary reissue of The White Album. This recording dates back to July 25th, 1968.

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 needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don’t know why nobody told you
How to unfold your 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


Well…

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
[LOVE version:] I look from the wings at the play you are staging.
While my guitar gently weeps
Look at you all
[LOVE version:] As I’m sitting here doing nothing but aging
Still my guitar gently weeps

Oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, ooh

Betty Campbell (1934-2017) was the first black head teacher in Wales. She held this position at the Mount Stuart Primary School in Cardiff.

Born in a low-income, working-class family, she nevertheless won a scholarship at the Lady Margaret High School for Girls, which paved her way towards a teaching career. She was a member of the Commission for Racial Equality and was awarded an MBE for her services to education.
