Beatles Album: Let It be : Track 2
Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney
The dig a pony song title was originally called Con a lowry and was written in the studios by John Lennon while filming for the get back film. The song has two main elements the 'dig a pony' piece and 'All I want is you'.
Dig a pony has many made up on the spot lyrics and even references the moondogs; one of the early names that the Beatles had in their early days.
The all I want is you was also by John but was originally going to be a different song; John put the two together and renamed the song dig a pony for rhyming purposes.
Dig a pony was recorded live on the rooftop of the apple studios and was used in the get back film.
