I was just listening to Ballad of John and Yoko way too loud....
getting high by the off.

It occurred to me that was just John and Paul that recorded this song.

I have a certain affection for this number as it is the first song I learned on guitar as a kid.

Good song. . I think Paul played drums and more.

Yes, John brought it into the studio

and only Paul was there. John didn’t want to wait to record it, so they did it as a duo. Paul played bass and drums and added harmonies. Great track.
First song

It's also the first song I learned on guitar. It's a really great song for deconstructing if you want to figure out how songs are made. It has a great, simple bassline.
That's a Beatles in name only song

It's more accurately a Lennon solo song that Paul happened to play session on with drums and bass.
I never cared for it much, too typical of the "John only writes self-indulgent songs about himself and Yoko" era just before the break up.
The riff at the end is from

Their BBC recording of "Lonesome Tears in my Eyes". Another great one.
