Eric Clapton - Love In Vain Lyrics




Well, I followed her to the station
With a suitcase in my hand.
Lord, I followed her to the station
With a suitcase in my hand.
Well, it's hard to tell, it's hard to tell,
When all your love's in vain.
All my love is in vain.

When the train pulled up to the station,
I looked her in the eye.
When the train pulled up to the station,
I looked her in the eye.
I was lonesome, I felt so lonesome,
And I could not help but cry.
All my love is in vain.

Well, the train it left the station
With two lights on behind.
Well, the train it left the station
With two lights on behind.
Well, the blue light was my blues,
The red light was my mind.
All my love is in vain.

Oh oh,
Oh, Willie Mae.
Oh oh oh oh oh,
Oh, Willie Mae.
Oh oh oh oh oh,
Oh vee oh woe.
All my love is in vain.

    Well I followed her to the station
    With a suitcase in my hand
    Yeah, I followed her to the station
    With a suitcase in my hand
    Whoa, it's hard to tell, it's hard to tell
    When all your love's in vain

    [Verse 2]
    When the train rolled up to the station
    I looked her in the eye
    Well the train rolled up to the station
    And I looked her in the eye
    Whoa, I felt so sad so lonesome
    That I could not help but cry

    When the train left the station

    I will tell my kids that i existed along side one of the greatest guitar heroes this world has known

  10. Matthew Horizon

    I would have been dead if a kid ran across the screen and did a swan dive out the window.

  11. UN7T7

    What the fuck, the title of the video should say, Robert Johnson - love in Vain

  12. male genitals look like mushrooms

    he loves blues so much that his face says it all

  13. Ñalo Laloca calo

    Astalculo

  14. Alex Dainese

    Is he playing a Martin J40?

  15. varmint tank

    This guy would make a good musician

  16. John Hines

    Never heard this played so great. Only Clapton can make it sound so good.

    Justin Maratea

    Stones version nothing to sneeze at

  17. Roddy Rod

    This is haunting. Clapton channeling Johnson perfectly.

  18. J B

    Beautiful

  19. Aditya Muhammad

    white martin? this guitar is one of a kind

  20. Aquiles Boi:v

    A prro traes la guitarra del coco:0

  21. FireWalkWithMe25

    Jack Bruce's sideman ain't bad.

  22. In The Mood

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivMLbmxhIUQ&feature=youtu.be our take

  23. Elizabeth Linsay

    The Stones did a good version of this Robert Johnson classic.

  24. PINKSANTANA

    The vers of rolling stones is better

  25. Scott Kasaboski

    BORN OF GUITAR GODS. I'm 1000% sure

  26. M Cassouille

    A guy filmed in a bedroom playing guitar. Yet, we are lightyears from the average youtuber. Clapton embodies a whole part of music history. This sounds so real.

  27. bull419

    I know it's Eric Clapton and he's a great guitar player but when I hear white guys singing blues it just doesn't sound quite right, something is missing, it's similar to hearing someone sing flamenco who isn't Gypsy born and bred it doesn't fit. Like George Carlin once said "White guys should stick to what they know, giving other people the blues, not singing them."

    Arnaud Dubois

    What king of racist comment is that? Fisrt of all, educate your sorry ass, flamenco is not a gypsy musical style, but Spanish, from Andalusia. And so do you think that athletes like Serena Williams, Lewis Hamilton or Tiger Woods should have stuck to playing basketball? Ooow no sorry, basketball was invented by a white man... And maybe black blues singer should just have stuck to singing without playing guitar, since it was invented by a white man, Antonio de Torres... Pfffff, your comment is so full of ignorance I hope your trolling. Or else you are just one stupid ass, scumbag human being.

  28. Nimesh Rimal

    Well, I followed her to the station
    With a suitcase in my hand
    Lord, I followed her to the station
    With a suitcase in my hand

    Well, it's hard to tell, it's hard to tell
    When all your love's in vain
    All my love is in vain

    When the train pulled up to the station
    And I looked her in her eye
    When the train pulled up to the station
    And I looked her in her eye

    I was lonesome, I felt so lonesome
    And I could not help but cry
    All my love is in vain

    Well, the train, it left the station
    Two lights on behind
    Well, the train, it left the station
    With two lights on behind

    Well, the blue light was my blues
    The red light was my mind
    All my love is in vain

    Ooh, Willie Mae
    Ooh, ooh, Willie Mae
    All my love is in vain

    Ricardo Lemos

    Thanks 🍻

  29. Doug Davis

    Can't say I've ever seen a white Martin. Pretty sweet.

  30. Ronald Clate

    I am disappointed tempo to fast

  31. Stephan Westphal

    Er hat es drauf

  32. Dick Johnson

    Check out Edward Phillips if you want the best playing and singing in this genre, you will be satisfied.Sorry Eric .

  33. Limited Edition

    To answer all your comments below about EC not playing the original or sounding the same......he's not trying or intending to be Robert Johnson! He is simply paying homage to him.

  34. mrfester42

    I've been listening to Clapton for over 50 years and there's not one note I've ever heard him play that I didn't thoroughly enjoy!

  35. Banglaroad

    He’s never been a good singer Jack Bruce was a good singer

  36. Gary Ives

    Sooooo much better than freakin "Layla" IMHO :)

  37. Eric Floyd

    Ladies and gentlemen, that's why they call him " Slowhand".

    Nicolas Durand

    That's actually because he always took a lot of time to change his strings when they broke on stage. I used to think it was for this reason too !

    Eric Floyd

    @Nicolas Durand nice! Good story. I never knew

  38. Gabe Caggiano

    Who is this guy? Looks like the architect down the street.

  39. shizuokaBLUES

    236 people are living their lives in vain

    James Finnegan

    Veins, if they dislike this.

    Tommy Emmanuelle please thank you

  44. moreme40

    Dig the white Martin

  45. Darry

    Eric you played better when you took Drugs.

    Joe B

    Only a fucking moron would write something so purely idiotic. A moron who can't play guitar worth shit. Every single jerk-off who thinks of stupidities likes this is someone I easily play under a table. lol!

  46. Phil Bates

    The genius of simplicity, or the simplicity of genius ❤️☯️🙏 Double genius, actually, Johnson and Clapton.

  47. Bert Mengels

    Am I the only one who spotted the 6263 on a bund strap on his wrist? This man knew a classic before the prices went craycray.

  48. Cleavis Butkus

    He just read the book: " Guitar playing for dummies"

  49. Ivan S. Dizon

    Wow! Raw! Home recording set up of the Legend.Just like we amateurs doing covers ☺

  50. Liam Carter

    Head; Look closely at the guitar playing, you could learn a thing or two.

    Heart; LOOKATTHATWATCHLOOKATTHATWATCHLOOK!!!!!!!

  51. luca barattucci

    Non vedo l ora che arrivi giugno per andare a milano a sentirlo!

  52. Malikoff

    Clapton is GOD

  53. Most Hated

    Big time cultural appropriation

    Connor McKenna

    Most Hated I think your comment just shows that your name is correct - Most Hated, no wonder when you go about commenting such idiotic rubbish on videos

  54. guitarsid

    damn that guitar is white but has some soul.

  55. Newton Simoes

    Clapton is God

  56. Eman JavaScript

    nice joke men

  57. Jonbrili Hadi

    This version is much better than the one in Eric's 2004 album

  58. pablos011

    nice sneackers...

  59. Ale Alj

    Well I followed her, to the station
    With a suitcase in my hand
    Yeah, I followed her to the station
    With a suitcase in my hand
    Whoa, it's hard to tell, it's hard to tell
    When all your love's in vain
    When the train, come in the station
    I looked her in the eye
    Well the train come in the station
    And I looked her in the eye
    Whoa, I felt so sad so lonesome
    That I could not help but cry
    When the train left the station
    It had two lights on behind
    Yeah, when the train left the station
    It had two lights on behind
    Whoa, the blue light was my baby
    And the red light was my mind
    All my love was in vain

  60. Will Gaming Roblox

    It's not the right color and gloss of guitar at singing this song

  61. Johnny Marlin

    If he wasn't a guitar player he would be a chemical engineer.

  62. Amy Kline

    He always knows Robert Johnson was better than him. Stop degrading Eric Clapton just because RJ was better. Clapton is the first to admit it

  63. Robert Tuss

    I followed her to the station with HER suitcase in my hand.

  64. slimturnpike

    That looks like room 414 in the Gunter Hotel, San Antonio, Texas, where Robt Johnson recorded the 16 tracks of his entire recorded output.

  65. Evan Hodge

    LOve is in vain. Or these days, in vein. People have become the walking Stupid.

  66. Debokarsho Dutta

    God that subtle interplay of bass and higher notes just sounds so good. Especially on headphones. Fitting tribute to the ethereal Robert Johnson.

  67. dengie75

    what a boring cunt.

  68. rittersternburdocks

    Hell... - This Man seems to be a real "6-String-Woodboard-Grandmaster"... - And the Composition itself, it unbosoms Handwriting of a real Grand-Master, too. - - So then... - perhaps you'ld like to try another Wink, although extremely unknown: -> www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSfg-TdY7GM (4 Minute-Ballad; maybe try to have a little Fun there-in) ;-)

  69. Jamesmartens55

    its a heatwave up here on Vancouver Island Canada in May....this transforms me to the Delta or down by the Riverside.

  70. Tim Spiegelhalter

    "I think that was okay" :D

  71. Jochen Hansen

    Exellent.it is from the Clapton Cd and Dvd Sessions for Robert Johnson a must have🎙🎸🔝🔝🔝🔝🔝🎵👌

  72. Filmer Ado

    Damn near perfect

  73. Hugo Jeanne

    What a master

  74. SellMe YourSoul

    hmmm the only one who does Johnson justice is Keef I think

  75. Fabio Sbacco

    Like Eric himself said he did the best he could but still RJ is a far better blues player. Original vocals are more sad and the guitar fills give the song the real sadness expression. Probably Buddy Guy or Muddy Waters could have come even closer to the original... Who knows.
    It's always difficult to replicate someone else's magic. Sure this guys own a lot to RJ. Nice to see Eric paying a tribute to a legend who opened the doors for many.
    Peace and love.

  76. Boyd Ross

    very nice

  77. gomita

    Que triste es saber que nunca tocaremos ese cover como Robert ni clapton así es que no queda más que escuchar las grabaciones que dejo

  78. Antony Russell

    Clapton is useless

  79. GoyoSound

    240 Bieber fans disliked the video. Learning who Robert Johnson and Eric Clapton represent probably will not make a difference to thin minds

  80. nicolas ocampo

    "i think that was ok..." then starts practicing! awesome!

  81. Henrik Sørensen

    Robert do this better.
    but also the stones doing a better version

  82. Lev Denisov

    Martin Bellezza Bianca - Very Best Guitar !

  83. Chris Duncan

    No color of music never take it away from all us any one play with feeling no music mistake.

  84. Faith Shaw

    This guy 💖

  85. Cole Tourand

    1000th comment.

  86. Stan Man

    C! C OOL! ! Dédicace à Mémé Jacqueline !

  87. david gagnon

    Very nice! His acoustic blues picking has come a long way since his MTV Unplugged special.

  88. Guga porpino

    Maior músico que já vi na vida !

  89. Tarmac1

    If this guy can play a few more songs all the way through, I think we could get him down the village hall . He could do a few songs between the disco.

  90. pho2

    Is that a Santa Cruz ?

    Mike Orzechowski

    No, it is a Martin. Did you not see my post below? I OWN this guitar, as in THE one used here in this recording, not a copy, THE guitar. It is currently for sale at Gruhn's Guitar's in Nashville for $50k. The sales price is based off use in the photoshoot with Martin, because I am having issues getting the documentation But I have photo 4/4 made. The other protos all had pick guards. This video was filmed in July 2004, shortly after my prototype #4 was finished in June. It wasn't until two years later the white Martin Belleza Bianca was introduced.

  91. tiago santos

    Great, my hero!

  92. Mr. Bluesnote

    🤘💃🐓💃🐓💃🐓🚂🕴🕴awesome 💓

  93. Ras al Hanout

    Massive racist.

    Ras al Hanout

    And a shit guitarist.

    Tarmac1

    rj l is a know nothing fuctard

  94. Mike Orzechowski

    I now own this EXACT guitar. As in THE guitar used by Eric for this DVD/CD. Prototype #4/4! It may be going to auction in the near future. Prototype #3/4 sold for $42,000, that one had a black pick guard and played just on the NBC Today Show.

    This guitar, prototype 4/4 was not only used on this project, but was also featured on the January 2006 Edition of Martin's newsletter, The Sounding Board, Volume 20. In addition, Eric is pictured holding prototype #4/4 (again without pick guard) in that catalog and in the Martin photo online. Plus, it was the last of 4 prototypes made. Can't believe I found this.

    And Martin has verified use by Eric based on the prototype number and serial number. Too cool for school!

  95. frank maffa

    Beautiful as always. Nobody plays like him
