This song is one example of George Harrison's compassion. The "Scruffs" were hippies (mostly female) who hung out at Apple Studios (well, actually Abbey Road), not bothering anybody but handing out flowers, panhandling and just being near the music. Of course, everyone looked down on them, including the other Beatles. Harrison saw them not as bums, but as human beings dedicated to their passion, the Beatles' music.
