Chords and lyrics

difficulty: expert



                This was from the Beatles' double album that showed that after Sgt 

Peppers and Magical Mystery Tour and the meditation in India, that

they could still play rock `n' roll. A lot of the songs on the white album

were written in India and recorded with only about 2 of the Beatles present.

This song is an example of that with a catchy riff to go with it.
