(Bonnie Bramlett and Eric Clapton)
From the Delaney & Bonnie album On Tour with Eric Clapton
Released as a single in Europe, "Coming Home" is the signature song from the Delaney & Bonnie album On Tour With Eric Clapton. The songwriting credit goes to Bonnie Bramlett and Eric Clapton, but it was almost certainly a collaboration between Clapton and Delaney.
The song is built around a two-measure guitar riff in A. Radle plays a complementary bass riff that locks in well with the guitars, becoming a sort of secondary hook. Being that there were four guitars, keyboards, and a horn section all playing in roughly the same register, Radle's bass cuts through very well as he was not competing with anything else in the lower register.
During the verses, Radle shifts to a line with a little less movement, but a bit more syncopation, which keeps propelling the line forward to the next downbeat. Though he adds slight embellishments to the line fairly regularly, most of the song can be played with just the two-measure riff and the two-measure verse groove.
There is also a simple bridge in E that occurs only once. This is the only harmonic change in the entire song. The rest of it is just riffs in A major.
