I was amazed, delighted, and charmed when I heard this version. I hope you enjoy this too. It's a video, so broadband is best, but it's worth hearing no matter what.

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

Don,

That's a cool version, and it is also possible to play that on a mandolin or in an open tuning on guitar.

I don't know how to download it, but there is also a great version - very emotional and powerful - by Jeff Healey. Jeff is a Canadian and lost both eyes at the age of 1 - he is nevertheless one of the most amazing blues and rock guitarists I have ever heard. His concerts are astonishing.

For you Canadians, Jeff is a native of Toronto and has still lives there. He has a club called "Jeff Healey's", and he plays there about once a week.

Much love,
Larry

wow! Cool version!

At first I thought It wasn't gonna be that great because it was a ukallele (do'know if thats right), but it was great. I've never heard a ukulele sound that good. I didn't even know that they/ it could sound that good. This guy is really tallented.

Thanx for sharing Don. This is one of my all time favorite Bitter-Sweet songs.
