Bass played by Paul McCartney
Words and Music by Paul McCartney

Written by Paul as a "fuck you" to his critics, who said that all
he could write was Silly Love Songs. Imho this song has the
greatest bass line Paul ever did. Hope you'll enjoy it!


Intro: 8 bars

Then that kickass main riff comes in. Here's how it goes.

G|---------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|
D|---------------|---------------|---------------|------0--------|
A|3-3-0-0-----0--|---------------|--------0-3----|0-3-------3-3--|
E|--------3-3----|0-0-2-2-3---3-2|1---2-3--------|---------------|
  ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^

There are some small variations, throughout the song. I'm not gonna
tab them all out here, just listen to the record and you'll be able
to play them, and even think of some by yourself.


At 0:46 the riff stops.

main riff again:
Paul: I love you (4x)

Paul: I can't explain the feelings plain to me, now can't you see
      Ahh she gave me more, she gave it all to me, now can't you see
Linda: I love you (2x)

what's wrong with that...

Paul & Linda: I love you
