I love the song, how it goes on so easily. I dont know how important it is to know if it was for his wife or for his friend, but when I listen to the song I feel instant joy for life and love for the simple things not just traveling but the sense of adventure. I think they dont care about the future or the past but simply enjoy the present. I sing in a band with two friends, we even have a facebook address "Sing Along Club Neza"
We live in Mexico city, we are Beatles fanatics and we've been singing together for 20 years now. We sing on saturdays and the Beatles songs have always been a part of our repertoire and had brought us toghether. Everytime we sing a beatles song the world seems brighter and better and hope rises all around. Call me a romantic, and idealistic person but "I'm not the only one" If you wish to write, you can use the facebook page quoted before...good bye friends, good bye , good bye
If I'm correct this song was written about Paul and Linda (Paul's first wife).
Anyways a real beautiful song done by an amazing band. Thank you Beatles for creating one of the best and creative group I've ever heard. May your work live forever!
Seems like bromance... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/15/11
Hi again same person who wrote the insanely long review on you've got to hide your love away. I think this song is definetly about John and Paul. I mean, theirs was the second best bromance EVAH!!!! Second only to Ringo and Joj (We shortened George to Joj at school...) which was adorable as it can get. This song reminds me of my best friend, Peyton. She lives next door to me and we see each other every day. We can both sing well, so I started to teach it to her (She does Paul's part because her voice is higher) We have memories "Longer than the road that stretches out ahead" even though we are only 11.
I love this song! to see more about this bromance of theirs, you should watch "Lennon&McCartney- It's only love..." I did not make the video i just love it. Thanx!

It's a love song of sorts. But more about friendship and partnership than romance. I never exlored the history of the tune until now. It's become a precious song that a friend and I think of as our song. We write post cards to one another and travel together well (because we like to explore with no particular direction.) It sometimes brings tears. I don't know why. Maybe because the concept of "home" -- "going home" may represent death? The final home?

This song was about Paul and Linda early on in their relationship. The postcards are mentioned as prior to hooking up with Paul she lived in the states and they would frequently send postcards to one another. After she moved to England to be near him, they would load his sheepdog Martha into the car and take drives out into the country with no destination in mind. She was easy going, laid back and loved to simply drive out with the sole intention of being miles from anywhere! That was liberating for him because as a Beatle his schedule was demanding, always being told when and where he needed to be.
Opening Quote | Reviewer: Jaymz | 11/2/09
"I dig a Pygmy by Charles Hawtrey and the Deaf Aids... Phase One in which Doris gets her oats." Is the opening line.
The song was originally written by paul about his wife, but later served as a tribute from Paul to John and back after the Beatles split.

It was actually Linda that had claimed the song was about her and Paul's relationship, and that they'd written it during a road trip "to nowhere," and I can see that in the lyrics.
Still, I see a lot more of John and Paul's friendship in lines like "spending someone's hard-earned pay" and "you and I have memories longer than the road ahead" and "you and me chasing papers."
It could be aspects of both, but I think the "you and I have memories longer than the road ahead" line is a dead giveaway. After all, if this was written at the start of Paul and Linda's relationship, why would the PAST be longer than the FUTURE? Makes more sense that Paul was writing about the end to the Beatles and the Lennon/McCartney writing team.

Friendship and so on.
beautiful | Reviewer: jimi
Well, if you have something like "The best of the Beatles" it's just not enough. You need "Everything of the Beatles". THen you'll be sure you can discover all the diamonds they've made. I changed alot in my life with music, and it's a gift from God, and may He bless us all...
Wrong not about John and Yoko | Reviewer: Mely
This song was written by McCartney and actually was NOT about John and Yoko. It was actually written for Paul's past wife Linda. Many believe that there was a certain undertone to the song that referenced John and Paul's relationship yet McCartney still claims it to be of wife Linda. Either way, GREAT song..The beatles are the best band in history.
What's this about | Reviewer: Salvador | 1/29/08
I don't know when this song was written. So I wonder if it is about Paul and John or about John and Yoko. I suppose if it was written in 1968 or later (it was released in '70) then it is about John and Yoko. What do you think?
This is such a beautiful song too. I really love it.

Although this song was one of the last ones from The Beatles carrier, it sounds as from an earlier stage - when there were John and Paul and not just John and Yoko. So pure, so simple but still so deep. Beatles forever.
what are the first words of the Let It Be album? | Reviewer: bengt kjellander
what are the first words of the Let It Be album? It's something about "phase one in which Doris gets her oats" There are more things said here and there on the LP,which are hard to grasp - said by the Beatles members.
