I have a pretty hefty collection of Paul McCartney tracks from the 'secret archives' (only about 10 hours worth!) I even thought about starting a thread on ATS to share some of the lesser-known songs that most people are unaware of.

Well here's a goody I think worth sharing!

The brief collaboration between McCartney and Carl Perkins yielded this hidden gem called "My Old Friend," written as a thank-you gesture from Perkins himself. The song brought tears to McCartney's eyes and he left the room upon hearing it.

It's a beautiful little song with an intriguing backstory as the lyric may have been among John Lennon's last words to Paul "Think about me every now and then."

Hope you enjoy the song and interview footage









On the Isle of Montserrat
Though I never shall forget
Just a country boy, a guitar and a song
You invited me in
And you treated me like king
And you've given me a reason to go on
My old friend,
Thanks for inviting me in
My old friend,
May this goodbye never mean the end
If we never meet again this side of life
In a little while, over yonder,
Where it's peace and quiet
My old friend,
Won't you think about me every now and then

If I told you how I feel
Oh, it wouldn't sound so real
'Cause emotions, they are just now settin' in
But it sure is great to know
That wherever we may go
We can always be the best of friends

My old friend,
Thanks for inviting me in
My old friend,
May this goodbye never mean the end
And if we never meet again this side of life
In a little while, over yonder,
Where it's peace and quiet
My old friend,
Won't you think about me every now and then
And I'll think about you,
My old friend

Yeah...My old friend

Yeah they weren't as good as our American Rolling Stones.
