Riff: Paul McCartney – “On My Way To Work”

Oct 14, 2013

She came from Chichester to study history/She had removed her clothes for the likes of me

from On My Way To Work lyrics by Paul McCartney

Taking a nostalgic trip down pre-Beatles memory lane on a playful acoustic ditty, McCartney claims that despite his ogles at titillating magazines, he only ever dreamed about one particular girl during his ungodly hour’s journey to the Liverpool delivery depot he earned his first wage packet at.
