Paul McCartney wrote this about he and his wife Linda. When The Beatles were breaking up, it took on new meaning as a gesture of affection from Paul to John Lennon.

This is mostly acoustic. It contains some electric guitar and no bass.
This appears twice in the movie Let It Be, the first time as a duet by John and Paul.
Lennon whistled on the fade-out.
