About the Song
"Drive My Car" is a song written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon in 1965. When McCartney arrived at Lennon's Weybridge home for a writing session he had the tune in his head but "The lyrics were disastrous, and I knew it." Lennon dismissed the lyrics as "crap" and "too soft".
They decided to rewrite the lyrics and after some difficulty - McCartney said it was "one of the stickiest writing sessions" - they settled on the "Drive My Car" theme and the rest of the lyrics flowed easily from that.
"As we don't have a keyboard in our band, we decided to play that well-known riff on the guitar. We feel that this even supports the "Drive My Car" theme and content of the lyrics and makes it a special version of this great song."
