    Find out how the lyrics to Old Brown Shoe by the Beatles came to be written.

    The Beatles Old Brown Shoe song was written by George Harrison. The song is an attempt by George to put down his spirituality on record. The Old brown show is full of opposites and attempts to describe the world as being an illusions.

    The Old Brown Shoe was the second of George's songs to make it onto a single, the first being the Inner Light which was also a B side. This period in time (including the recording of the white album) allowed George to get across more of his songs due to the developing of frictions between John and Paul. He would eventually get his own A side with the song something, off the abbey road album.
