Two of Us






"Two of Us" is the opening album track from the Beatles' "Let it Be" album. While never released as a single in the major markets, "Two of Us" would have done very well as a single. "Two of Us" was paired with "Across the Universe" as a demo from Apple Records. An outtake of "Two of Us" appeared on "Anthology 3." A performance of "Two of Us" appears in the film "Let It Be." "Two of Us" also marked the final (taped) performance by the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show on 1 March 1970.



"Two of Us" served as the title of a 2000 VH1 television docudrama about Paul McCartney and John Lennon. Some consider it to be a very tasteful and realistic depiction of their relationship.

"Two of Us" is a television film depicting a real meeting between Paul McCartney and John Lennon in 1976.

There is a spoken introduction by John Lennon on the original "Let It Be" album that has nothing to do with the song and is usually edited out of later versions. Apple released a copy of "Two of Us" with "Across the Universe" as a US jukebox single in 1996.



Two of us riding nowhere
Spending someone's
Hard earned pay
You and me Sunday driving
Not arriving
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

Two of us sending postcards
Writing letters
On my wall
You and me burning matches
Lifting latches
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

You and I have memories
Longer than the road that stretches out ahead

Two of us wearing raincoats
Standing so low
In the sun
You and me chasing paper
Getting nowhere
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home

You and I have memories
Longer than the road that stretches out ahead

Two of us wearing raincoats
Standing so low
In the sun
You and me chasing paper
Getting nowhere
On our way back home
We're on our way home
We're on our way home
We're going home
