Riff: Paul McCartney – “Get Me Out Of Here”

Oct 14, 2013

I hear the taxman knocking at my door/I’ve got a feeling he’ll be asking for more/Oh Lord, get me out of here

from Get Me Out Of Here lyrics by Paul McCartney

Despite recently topping the world’s richest musicians list with a personal fortune of over $800 million, McCartney still can’t help worrying about paying his taxes judging by this anxiety-fuelled primitive country blues number which pleads with the Lord to whisk him away from his troubles.
