Beatles Without John
Lyrics
BEATLES WITHOUT JOHN


Past the city limits on 65, hypnotized by little white lines
As I blow on by, and wonder why...
After ten good years something when wrong, you let go, now I'm just hanging on
To the radio, it's an all Beatles show

The Fab Four are coming through
Filling my mind with memories of you

Can I Get Back to where I Feel Fine
I'm So Tired from A Hard Day's Night
On this Long And Winding Road
My broken heart won't Let It Be
When I hear that Guitar Gently Weep
I could use some Help
There'd be no Beatles without John
And there's no perfect pair since you've been gone...I'm just a sad song

I'm headed on back to Birmingham, to try to get by with some help from my friends
But until then, I imagine...
The speakers in here have come alive, with Ringo on the left, George on the right
And Paul's in between, singing these songs to me

With a Lonely Heart and a Rubber Soul
I've turned this interstate into Abbey Road

We'd Come Together when times got tough
I believed All You Need is Love
If we tried Eight Days A Week
You always said We Can Work It Out
Our wedding DJ played Twist and Shout
It seems like Yesterday
There'd be no Beatles without John
And there's no perfect pair since you've been gone...I'm just a sad song

Can I Get Back to where I Feel Fine
I'm So Tired from A Hard Day's Night
I could use some Help
We'd Come Together when times got tough
I believed All You Need is Love
It seems like Yesterday
There'd be no Beatles without John
And there's no harmony since you've been gone...I'm just a sad song
...I'm just a sad song....Just like the Beatles...without John
