    Beatles Album: The Beatles AKA The White Album : Track 29

    Year: 1968

    Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney

    Length: 0.27

    The song can you take me back acts as a linking song between the madcap revolution number 9 and the sweet lullaby cry baby cry. It was written and performed in total by Paul McCartney, and had probably not meant to be a stand a lone song but a part of one of the songs that surrounded it.
