Miss O'Dell Lyrics - George Harrison

Review The Song (4)

I'm the only one down here
Who's got nothing to say
About the war
Or the rice
That keeps going astray on its way to Bombay.
And the smog that keeps polluting up our shores
Is boring me to tears.
Why don't you call me, Miss O'Dell?

I'm the only one down here
Who's got nothing to fear
From the waves
Or the night
That keeps rolling on right up to my front porch.
The record player's broken on the floor,
And Ben, he can't restore it.
Miss O'Dell.

I can tell you
Nothing new
Has happened since I last saw you.

And I'm the only one down here
Who's got nothing to say
About the hip
Or the dope
Or the cat with most hope to fill the Fillmore.
And your pushing, shoving, ringing on my bell
Is not for me tonight.
So, won't you call me, Miss O'Dell?

Won't you call me, Miss O'Dell?

I remember putting this on the jukebox in a pub in Marylebone in 1973, my mate said it's ok but I would'nt travel across London to hear it, I would and I did, mind you I like 99.9% of what George recorded anyway.

Can anybody make out the phone number at the end?


Cool song, a younger fan might think it's The Rutles. :)

I used to hear a rumor that Bob Dylan was on this recording. Who could tell??

Private Time with George | Reviewer: Steve Rosenblatt | 9/2/06

"Miss O'Dell" is a charming curio. It was the b-side to the #1 "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace on Earth)" and in that capacity was probably heard by hundreds of thousands of people. However, the song was never released officially on 33 1/3 (the format--not George's album of the same name) and until now has not appeared on disc. (That being said, it will probably show up as a bonus track on the upcoming "Living in the Material World" re-release.)

What's most appealing about the track is its relaxed, easy-going feel. In fact, you actually hear George cracking up uncontrollably a la the Fabs in "And Your Bird Can Sing" ("Anthology II" version). It's almost as if you're in the studio with the Quiet One, just mucking about with the mission of making a b-side. One quarter of the magical Quartet, cresting the apex of his solo career, just looking to knock out a little ditty with "nothing bright about it." So to speak.

Miss O'Dell, a simple but fun & top notch G. Harrison Tune | Reviewer: Chuck Kacik | 5/1/06

I bought the single, Give Me Love, in 1973. On the flip side of the 45 RPM was this fun song that continues to ring in my head after not hearing it since 1979 (Its now 2006). Definately one of my favorite George Harrison tunes. I still like humming it to myself when I'm busy with things. I'm hoping I can rebuy it on CD one day. I don't know if it can be downloaded from one of the websites, but I don't have a home computer anyway.
