Goodbye (1969)

In honor of my favorite shirt, here's a song from one of the bands that Eric Clapton was in.  Maybe you've heard of them, they were only the first supergroup ever.  The name of the song has a story behind it.  George Harrison of The Beatles, who was Eric Clapton's good friend, was helping him write the music for this song.  On his sheet music he wrote "Bridge", but Clapton, who couldn't read Harrison's handwriting, said "What's 'BADGE?!'".  And then, according to Harrison, Ringo Starr stumbled into the room drunk and gave them the line for the song about "the swans, they live in the park."  Good times.
