Virginia Abreu De Paula from Montes Claros BrazilThe intro do sounds like Woman. As Woman was written much later it was John who got inspired by Paul's song. I also heard Paul wrote it also for John. I mean, he got inspired by the little lamb they were nursering, but it seems John used to imitate lamb's voice while recording. It was written when he and Paul were in bad terms. But he missed him very much. Pain in his heart. He also recognises both made mistakes. I can't guarantee it is true, but for sure it makes sense.
Don from Sevierville, TnI think the chant resembles Rocky Racoon, and some of the guitar riffs resemble the intro to Woman (from John Lennon's Double Fantasy album, also released as a single after he was murdered).
Melissa from Fairborn, OhMmm, I heard that song for a few times from a few years ago, and yes it's a strange song.
"Sloop John B" is a traditional West Indian folk song, and it was a huge hit for The Beach Boys in 1966. They tweaked the lyric, "This is the worst trip since I've been born" to "...I've ever been on" as a wink to acid culture.
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
