This Guitar Can’t Keep From Crying – Happy Birthday George Harrison

George
Today, is George Harrison‘s birthday.

He was my fav Beatles, thanks to his humble and modest personality, his amazing songwriting skills and being the brilliant guitar player.
He wasn’t into fast soling, but every note he played was well thought.
He wasn’t writing sophisticated lyrics, but he knew how to write a good story in a way everyone will understand.
He wasn’t provocative, but whenever he spoke, he was insightful and influential.That’s what makes George such an amazing musician.

Some of his mid-70’s albums went below the radar and were missed by many. One of these albums was Extra Texture .
I won’t go into reviews etc, but I would like to post this song of his, This Guitar Can’t Keep From Crying. It’s George in his best.

So What’s your George song? Do share.

This Guitar Can’t Keep From Crying/George Harrison

Found myself out on a limb
But I’m happier than I’ve ever been
But this guitar can’t keep from crying

Learned to get up when I fall
Can even climb Rolling Stone walls
But this guitar can’t keep from crying

This here guitar can feel quite sad
Can be high strung, sometimes get mad
Can’t understand or deal with hate
Responds much better to love

I though by now you knew the score
But you missed the point just like before
And this guitar can’t keep from crying

(This) guitar, it can’t keep from crying
This guitar can’t keep from crying

This here guitar can feel quite sad
Can be high strung, sometimes get mad
It can’t understand or deal with hate
Responds much better to love

While you attack, create offense
I’ll put it down to your ignorance
But this guitar it can’t keep from crying
This guitar can’t keep from crying

This guitar can’t keep from crying
This guitar can’t keep from crying
