Acknowledgement: This song was originally transcribed in 1993 by Jim Campobello (campo@calspan.com). I downloaded Jim's version and transposed into the key of G used on the Anthology album. I also added some bluesy 11ths and 9ths which give the Beatles that bluesy rock sound. The Beatles also played this in F# in the opening segment of the movie A Hard Day's Night. A great song that I have just rediscovered. Enjoy!
