This song was written by Eric Clapton, Marcella Detroit and George Terry. It was recorded & performed by Clapton and appeared on his 1977 album ‘Slowhand’. The up-tempo tune is one of Clapton's biggest American hits. He intentionally wrote it in the style of one of his favourite songwriters, Oklahoma musician J.J. Cale. Clapton said the song was "as close as an Englishman could get to being J.J. Cale”.
The song lyrics reference Clapton trying to convince a girl to hang out with him in bed instead of leaving. It was the Bee Gee’s who kept Clapton out of the No.1 spot in the charts with “Night Fever” & “Stayin' Alive” keeping ‘Lay Down Sally’ at No.3.
This is a one-off single rhythm complete with intro's/endings/fills & variations written in the style of the song for newer Ketron instruments. (Please note this is not a song file - often referred to as a midi file - that refers to and plays only one song. Subject to the chords you play on your instrument this style can be used for many numbers of which Lay Down Sally is just one).
