NOTES.
1.  The repeating riffs are essentially repeating octave G5 chords, in different arrangements.
This was not an attempt at a full TAB, but to assist in highlighting the lead accompaniment,
where it is most prominent.
2.  “…Referring to the lyric "I used to be cruel to my woman/I beat her and kept her apart from
the things that she loved/Man I was mean but I'm changing my scene/And I'm doing the best that
I can", Lennon admitted that he had done things in relationships in the past that he was not proud of. …”
