Jam based on the Beatles song Dear Prudence.

Full song regularly performed by JGB

A John Lennon song.

Lennon explained the idea for the song as follows. Mia & Prudence Farrow travelled to Boston to study with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi at some point in 1968. There was concern that Prudence was staying in her room meditating/studying excessively and Lennon was selected to visit her and encourage her to come out more. Hence Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play, Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day.
