Eric Clapton - Let It Grow (1974)

As of yet, this artist is the only man to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three times: as a member of The Yardbirds, as a member of Cream, and as a solo artist. He also found success in Derek and the Dominos, Delaney and Bonnie, Blind Faith, and The Bluesbreakers. He is unquestionably one of the most influential and greatest guitarists of all time. He is one of the many artists to be featured on this site that cannot be accurately summed up in such a small space.

This song comes from his second solo album, 461 Ocean Boulevard, released in 1974. The highlight of the album was his cover of Bob Marley’s “I Shot the Sheriff,” which went to number one, but this song has also been noted as one of the album’s best tracks. It’s suggested that you turn your speakers up a bit as he sings at a low whisper for the entire track.

Lyrics:

Standing at the crossroads trying to read the signs
To tell me which way I should go to find the answer
And all the time I know
Plant your love and let it grow

Let it grow, let it grow
Let it blossom, let it flow
In the sun, the rain, the snow
Love is lovely, let it grow

Looking for a reason to check out of my mind
Trying hard to get a friend that I can count on
But there's nothing left to show
Plant your love and let it grow

Let it grow, let it grow
Let it blossom, let it flow
In the sun, the rain, the snow
Love is lovely, so let it grow (let it grow)
Let it grow

Time is getting shorter and there's much for you to do
Only ask and you will get what you are needing
The rest is up to you
Plant your love and let it grow

Let it grow, let it grow
Let it blossom, let it flow
In the sun, the rain, the snow
Love is lovely, so let it-

Let it grow, let it grow
Let it blossom, let it flow
In the sun, the rain, the snow
Love is lovely, so let it grow
