Beatles Album: The Beatles AKA The White Album : Track 16
Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney
The Lyrics to the I Will song make a marked change in Paul McCartney's life, most of his previous songs (including Martha my dear on this album) had been about his love for Jane Asher; I will is the first song that Paul wrote for his new girlfriend and future wife Linda Eastman. He was so keen to get it right that he took nearly 70 takes to get tracked.
As normal Paul wears his heart on his sleeve and the I will lyrics refer to him loving her forever and ever, and being to be prepared to wait a lonely lifetime for her love.
