Ballad of John and Yoko

Lennon/McCartney
Album: Let It Be

BUY THIS CD AT AMAZON.COM



Standing in the dock at Southampton
trying to get to Holland or France
The man in the mac said
you've got to go back
You know they didn't even give us a chance


Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me


Finally made the plane into Paris
Honeymooning down by the Seine
Peter Brown call to say
you can make it O.K.
You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain


Christ you know it ain't easy


You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me


Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton
Talking in our beds for a week
The newspapers said
say what're you doing in bed
I said we're only trying to get us some peace


Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me


Saving up your money for a rainy day
giving all your clothes to charity
Last night the wife said


Oh boy when you're dead
you don't take nothing with you but your soul, think


Made a lightning trip to Vienna
Eating chocolate cake in a bag
The newspapers said
she's gone to his head
They look just like to Gurus in drag


Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me


Caught the early plane back to London
Fifty acorns tied in a sack
The men from the press
said we wish you successs
It's good to have the both of you back


Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Information

A documentary of John's marriage to Yoko in Gibralter and the following events appeared on Let It Be. The victims that are being crucified are experiencing terrible hardships when all they are trying to do is get married. They couldn't get a licence to marry in France and the fact that is hidden is that they were sent away at the docks of Southampton because they were trying to leave the country without passports! They also joke about the misunderstanding about their "Bed In" for peace. It had been hoped that they would be doing more than sitting on the bed in pyjamas answering questions!
