  • Lyrics
  • This was Harrison's last album recorded before his death in 2001. He could not finish recording before he died, so the album was completed by his son Dhani.
  • This is about having ambition in life; if you don't take action, nothing will succeed. >>

  • George's son Dhani said that while he and his father were in Hawaii, they walked by a beach and saw a sign that read, "If the wind blows, you can always adjust your sails, but, if you don't know where you're going, then any road will take you there." The sign was the inspiration for the song. >>

  • Rick from EarthLOVE this song. One of his very best and that's saying something. RIP
  • John from Grand Island, NyOne of the best human beings ever placed on this planet. Period.
  • Miles from Vancouver, CanadaA beautiful posthumous single for the late Beatle. So optimistic and bit Cat Stevens-like.
  • Glenna from Gilbert, AzThis song really moves along. That it has a great lyric is a bonus. I admire George Harrison more every time I listen to him, read about him and consider what a pioneer he really was.
    One of the big gaps in the 21st century will be the one that might have held John Lennon and George Harrison for the years that were stolen from them by tragedy and disease.
  • Ken from Louisville, KyOn the album, George is credited with playing (along with his signature slide guitar) a "banjolele", a hybrid banjo and ukelele.
  • Ken from Louisville, KyThe song opens with George's instructions on how the song should be mixed: "Gimme plenty of that guitar".
  • Nicole from Easton, MaI think that by, "If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there," he means that if you don't know where you're going when you die- heaven or hell- so you don't commit yourself to being a Christian and live your life for God, no matter what you do in life you're going to go to hell. But this is just speculation.
  • Ken from Louisville, KyThis was the last song George ever perfomed in public. He appeared on a 1997 VH1 interview show, was given a guitar and asked to play a Beatles song. He was embarrassed that he couldn't remember the chords to any of them. So instead he said he'd play a "little" of the new song he was working on. He went on to sing and play the whole thing.
  • Ruby from Cc, TxJust got this album. This song is amazing. It's sad that George died before finished the album, but Dhani did very good job finishing.
  • Tommy from Flower Mound, TxThis is one of my favorite songs ever! It's so good, I made a music video for it! If I ever form a band, I want to try to add this in our list!
  • Meredith from Sacramento, Cai cannot stop listening to this on my ipod. Nice combo of the electric guitar and bango.
  • Nathan from Defiance, OhIt's a shame that I only just discovered George's music after he died.
  • Jude from Thomasville, GaThis is a perfect epitaph for George. I miss him so much. He was truly a great musician and a wonderful, caring human being. There wasn't a phoney bone in his body -- he was a MAN.
  • Stefanie Magura from Rock Hill, Scgreat song! love the guitar in it!
