john lennon’s guitar lyrics – james harvest barclay

barclay james harvest
welcome to the show
john lennon’s guitar
(john lees)

back in the autumn of seventy
on the night shift at abbey road
four young men were recording a song named `galadriel’
for an alb*m they’d call “once again”
the producer was norman smith
who’d engineered with the beatles and john
whose guitar was to be instrumental that day
when i came to play

i remember it well, as if it was yesterday
the day that i played
john lennon’s guitar
i remember it well, as if it was yesterday
the day that i played
john lennon’s guitar

back in the autumn of seventy
as i played on my borrowed guitar
how could i know the beatles would split the next day
my heroes break up and go their own way

now autumns they come and they go
but my friends and my memories remain
and my heroes, well some of them fell from the stage
but their light still remains

i remember it well, as if it was yesterday
the day that i played
john lennon’s guitar
i remember it well, as if it was yesterday
the day that i played
john lennon’s guitar

i remember the day
i remember the day
i remember the day
i remember the day
the day that i played
john lennon’s guitar
i remember the day, as if it was yesterday
and i know that the memories will never fade
i remember the day, as if it was yesterday
the day that i played
john lennon’s guitar
