Riff: Paul McCartney – “Hosanna”

Oct 14, 2013

Come on lady, don’t you do me wrong/I fell for you and now it won’t be long/Before I hold you in my arms

from Hosanna lyrics by Paul McCartney

Perhaps inspired by his recent performance with Nirvana, “Hosanna” is an echo-laden grungy ballad which sees McCartney reveal that he’ll do everything from hiding in the dark to a spot of hymn singing in a bid to convince his other half to commit fully to their relationship; [LISTEN].
