Holy Mother, where are you?
Tonight I feel broken in two.
I've seen the stars fall from the sky.
Holy mother, can't keep from crying.
Oh I need your help this time,
Get me through this lonely night.
Tell me please which way to turn
To find myself again.
Holy mother, hear my prayer,
Somehow I know you're still there.
Send me please some peace of mind;
Take away this pain.

Blues Tuesday: Eric Clapton, "Holy Mother"
I love this song. It was running through my head all weekend and couldn't wait to post it as this week's Blues Tuesday. It's quite amazing that a rock star would have such a religious song; it's amazing that he played it live at a concert; and it's really, really amazing that he played it as his encore song. He's also got a nice choir behind him on this. Hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.
