- Note: Paul McCartney and John Lennon share lead vocals on this song – the lyrics come from two different unfinished songs – Paul’s “I’ve Got A Feeling” and John’s “Everybody Had A Hard Year”. They were both having very different feelings at the time – Paul had a feeling about how his life was going to change after meeting his future wife, Linda Eastman. John was having feelings about the break up of the band, his divorce from Cynthia and his relationship with Yoko Ono. The song can be interpreted as both artists predicting happy as well as sad events. This was the last song the duo wrote as a partnership, and appears on the Let It Be album. It was famously played at the Beatles rooftop concert in London, above their Apple offices in January 1969.
