    Although all of the Beatles chipped in to the lyrics of Dig it, the song first started off as a John Lennon song called can you dig it. The Beatles recorded the song as a jam and all added lines into the song as they went along.

    The dig it lyrics reference many of the current affairs going on at the time including investigations by the FBI and CIA. George talks of his love for the music of BB King in the song.
