Notes

Lead vocals - 1969 version Pigpen, later versions Mydland.

A Paul McCartney song.

Recorded by the Beatles on 29th July 1968. The first Beatles single to be released on Apple & the longest Beatles single, timed at 7 min 15 sec - though more than half of this is the fade-out. Released in the UK & US on 26th August 1968 with Revolution on the B-side, though original it was to be the reverse.

McCartney has said that the song was made up to cheer up Lennon's son Julian and that the original lyric was 'Hey Jules'.
