Harrison, George - All Those Years Ago Lyrics

I'm shouting all about love
While they treated you like a dog
When you were the one who had made it
so clear
All those years ago.

I'm talking all about how to give
They don't act with much honesty
But you point the way to the truth when you say
All you need is love.

Living with good and bad
I always look up to you
Now we're left cold and sad
By someone the devil's best friend
Someone who offended all.

We're living in a bad dream
They've forgotten all about mankind
And you were the one they backed up to
the wall
All those years ago
You were the one who Imagined it all
All those years ago.

Deep in the darkest night
I send out a prayer to you
Now in the world of light
Where the spirit free of the lies
And all else that we despised.

They've forgotten all about God
He's the only reason we exist
Yet you were the one that they said was
so weird
All those years ago
You said it all though not many had ears
All those years ago
You had control of our smiles and our tears
All those years ago

    RIP Kobe Bryant

  2. Константин Кураев

    О классный хит.. Просто чудесный хит...

  3. Michael H.

    This is nearly a Beatles track. Ringo and Paul playing on George's track. John didn't play on the last few Beatles tracks George recorded either.

  4. fredgnar montes de oca arteaga

    such an wonderful intro to a beautiful song
    RIP George my heart aches when I listen to your music ; why do the best of musicians go too soon 😞

  9. Bomby the Cunt

    this song makes me cry for a reason or another
    just thinking about the reason and all omfg I can’t even finish because of all the ffuckign tears
    it’s like sobbing over the saddest book
    except this is not a book
    it’s a different kind of masterpiece

  10. Osvaldo Menezes

    Música fenomenal, muito linda.

  11. t4705mb6

    George was the *HOT* Beatle.
    (I don't care WHAT my sister says about Paul either!)

  12. Mr 80's

    A True Friend May You Rest In Piece George

  13. Rosildo Anisio de Souza Souza

    Melhor que Jonh Lennon!!

  14. NintendoSegaDcMarvel StarwarsTMNTPixarfan95

    R.I.P. John Lennon 1940/1980 Mark David Chapman should have not killed him
    And also for the artist R.I.P. George Harrison 1943/2001
    The Beatles are the best and I miss John and George so bad.

  15. Johnny Doherty

    So I'm guessing this was about John

  16. Joceli De Souza Aupperle

    *Musica linda .. * <3 valeu !*

  17. Cam E

  19. Miguel De Adeje

    Genius .

  20. That man in your basement

    The electronics sound like sonic lmaoooo

  21. The Kosac07

    Such a good, yet sad song. Makes me wanna sing, dance and cry at the same time... Thank you George. <3

  22. Coochie Brando

    To this day, I still wish George avoided cigarettes, REST IN PEACE 😢

  23. Ben Kleschinsky

    This is probably the last real Beatles tune ever made. Paul plays bass on this and that’s Ringo drumming.

    Ninaad Dixit

    And it's written for John...

    Did Paul and Ringo really play on this??

    Ben Kleschinsky

    Ninaad Dixit Yes indeed. It was the first time they had played together since Let It Be.

  24. Judy Ledbetter

    God Bless George, "The Quiet Beatle". Rest In Peace, John & George.
    Dear 👼 s . God Bless.

  25. Steve Lloyd

    George is my favorite Beatle.....John a close second🌟🌟🌟🌟

  26. Henrys Unervise peoples

    This was John Lennon's memory

  27. Dudley2346

    The fact that Ringo Starr, and Paul McCartney, are also on this song, makes it the most sentimental and beautiful musical tribute to John Lennon ever. <3

    Joe Kline

    Never Knew Paul and Ringo were Involved.

  28. Mostly White

    "The wrong two Beatles died first" ~ George Carlin


    greatest hits forever

  30. Osvaldo Menezes

    Música maravilhosa demais, essa é a minha canção preferida de George Harrison.

  31. stone cold fan 316

    Flashback to best times of our lives those of us older dogs will remember the generation X'ers and baby boomers back when cars were cooler chicks were hotter not slutty hair was cooler no manbuns.

  32. Zach Smith

    This feels so much like the Beatles but in the 80s and I’m in love

  33. Clinton Hiley

    I miss the good music.

  34. Andrew S

    I absolutely love this song! I bet John was able to hear it from heaven...that maniac who took John Lennon away is where he deserves...prison. I’m really happy to have The Beatles in my life because they’ve gotten me though some hard times...I have an appreciation for both John and George. This is such a wonderful tribute for John...I wonder what he would’ve thought of it. I’m sure he’d like it. I’m so happy that The Beatles legacy lives on. It will never die! Still, I wish I could go back in time to prevent John’s murder from happening....I get kind of emotional when I hear this song because George really cared for John! Ringo once said, “I was an only child, so as a Beatle, I felt like I had 3 brothers”

  35. Max B

    'They've forgotten all about God.. He's the reason we exist'..Brilliant. God bless you, George . We'll always love you.

  36. Bruno de Oliveira Cardoso

    Beautiful Music ❤

  37. Maxi Mellon Gaming

    You were the one who Imagined it all
    All those years ago.

    Great tune from George. Listen to my song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gdl_aA1wQ4Q

  41. Bruno Pinkhof

    Great song of George.

  42. Antonio Marine

    Holy shit this song is so good! One of George’s best! Ringo on drums, Paul, Linda, and Denny on backup vocals!

  43. Ray Nutter

    Ringo on drums. Very distinctive.

  44. Renan carvalho

    George aí se lamentando por quê Lennon morreu antes deles voltarem as boas, mas Lennon se foi e o bode ficou.

  45. Shakermaker

    I wish George had John had reconciled before John was murdered

  46. James Brown

    The guitar is the shit on this

  47. Chevy Guy!

    i hate this song

    philip norris

    And yet you felt the need to come here and say that? wow, you must truly have no life.

  48. ShadowDemon 77

    This song reminds of my friends...they ditched me

  49. Ray Benoit

    Another word about "him". He really had no idea how much we adored him. He humbly accepted that he was less than , when he was not at all less than.

  50. Sergio Rivera

    George Harrison

  51. Ray Benoit

    I love lennon and McCartney immensely, i love him immeasurably.

  52. Ray Benoit

    He was "their " anchor, he was "my" anchor!

  53. Sadie Clements

    The earth is flat ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ god bless

  54. Jason Nadle

    I wonder if The Beatles could've gone in this direction if they reunited with John Lennon and he hadn't been shot.

  55. Lily Bull

    Is it just me... or does George sound like David Tennant doing an English accent in this sometimes?? Of course this song is incredible... truly amazing... but the Doctor might have popped in 😂😂

  56. Americas Father

    peice of art

  57. DavidRagan3134

    A nice tribute to Lennon from George. Nice of Ringo and Paul to contribute as well.

  68. Ann Getty

    George was always my favorite. Big crush on him. But loved the whole band. Came out just as I was getting old enough to listen to rock-'n'-roll. Wish George and John were still alive so we could see what they'd be doing now. RIP.

  69. Franb

    They kill John bc his ideas of PEACE AND LOVE just as they did with Jesus .

    Sanne de Koster

    bu the beatles are bigger then him.. haha

  70. Sotr Cleaner

    Lennon is by far my favorite Beatle, but it ticks me off how many overlook George, his talent, and his humanity. Rip Both of them

    Cher Cher

    I don't overlook him . . . I love this song "All Those Years Ago." And, as much as I love so many Beatles songs, I think one of his own "Here Comes the Sun" ranks right up there was one of the best of that group!

    John Q Taxpayer

    Cause he was quiet 😊

  71. Baby Luigi & Baby Mario

    Love how this is for john and he says "you imagined it all" like a throwback to "imagine"

    Joey O

    Good call. I think thats exactly what George was hinting at.. And was perfectly inserted in the lyrics for that reason.

  72. John Yacuone

    We forgot about God he's the one else we wouldn't exist thank u God RIP Quiet one

  73. Richard W

    An instant classic.

  74. Carl Bee

    Dedicate to great John Lennon RIP always 🙏

  75. carolyn thompson

    I love this song. A beautiful tribute to John Lennon by the generous heart of George Harrison. Rest in peace, John and George.

  76. S Tate

    could apply to manson

  77. i980 b678

    Cynthia Lennon's audio book "John" is on youtube and worth a listen.

  78. simon marshall

    I hate what David Mark Chapman did to the Late John Lennon . John didn’t deserve it . I hope DMC Rots in Hell

    Hector Saba

    He's Not Dead Yet.

    simon marshall

    Hector Saba he doesn’t deserve to be on Parole at all

  79. simon marshall

    Tribute to both John and George

  80. Ricardo Van Rooi

    Jasper Gouws 90s era on KFM 94.5 The jazz man 9pm-12pm weekdays

  81. Maybe Just Maybe

    The people who dislike this are angry nine year olds that play fortnite

  82. MisterHot

    It's amazing how more time has passed since that song was released than when the Beatles were together.

  83. Kon Foooshus

    I was lucky enough to grow up in the 60's, & the Beatles & their music represented so much of our generation.
    George was always looked on as the quiet one( partly because he was the youngest,
    not even old enough to play in the clubs with them in Hamburg), but the interviews he gave in later years,
    were so insightful & down to earth, & showed he really had a clear view of what was happening around them.

  84. silvia andrea guzman

    I lo ve this song

  85. Winifred Ogilvie

    What can one say....?

  86. Sra Mrtnlli

    Love ya Georgie

  87. Jo McMullen

    In my opinion George's best single. Heart felt.

  88. silvia andrea guzman

    I love this song

  89. paolo de

    E' bellissima la canzone "All Tose Years Ago", poi George Harrison è molto bravo come cantante e chitarrista.

  90. John Booker's Full spectrum

    Thank you sweet Lord for George.

  91. epicman004

    John and George- The two guitar players of the Beatles that in my opinion were the most introspective of the Beatles.
    RIP John and George

  92. Peanut


  93. LeBeau

    This really shows how much George looked up to John as a mentor and learned so much. RIP George and John.

    La salamandra cosica

    He was the leader of the band since they were teens. Just watching him talking on tv with beatles is enough to notice that


    But why george doesnt include John in his book , thats why John is upset to george before he died


    @Shiro He was angry with John obviously. John blew off a lot of his friends when he was with Yoko. The only time George or Paul or Ringo saw much of John was when John was on his "lost weekend" with May Pang.


    George looked up to both John and Paul as older brothers.

  94. Christopher Snow

    George has always been my favorite Beatle! R. I.P George Harrison and John Lennon.✌️

  95. Amelia Torres

    All you Need is love

    I made a ryme for this situation

    " The man that wanted fame took your life away "

    Andrew S

    I agree! John Lennon didn’t deserve what happened to him! I sincerely hope Chapman dies in prison! I wish things could’ve turned out better

    so_um_i ordered _a _big_mac at_wendys

    @Andrew S
    Dont we all...

    so_um_i ordered _a _big_mac at_wendys

    @Andrew S
    The man that wanted peace didnt die in peace.

    Andrew S

    I know...I wish John could’ve been able to say goodbye to his bandmates

  98. ConsumerWarrior

    George Harrison was a talented musician who was taken away from us all way too soon. May he rest in peace.

  99. glammie4

    God Bless GH and may he surrounded by LOVE.
