"Apple Scruffs" as written by and George Harrison....
Now I've watched you sitting there
Seen the passers-by all stare
Like you have no place to go
But there's so much they don't know about Apple Scruffs

You've been stood around for years
Seen my smiles and touched my tears
How it's been a long, long time
And how you've been on my mind, my Apple Scruffs

Apple Scruffs, Apple Scruffs
How I love you, how I love you

In the fog and in the rain
Through the pleasures and the pain
On the step outside you stand
With your flowers in your hand, my Apple Scruffs

While the years they come and go
Now, your love must surely show me
That beyond all time and space
We're together face to face, my Apple Scruffs

Apple Scruffs, Apple Scruffs
How I love you, how I love you

    General Commentthis song is really good..a little annoying if listened to excessively, but still awesome. if anyone was wondering..an "Apple scruff" was one of the people who waited outside of apple records for the beatles to finish recording just to see them. George was thanking them for being there when no one else was.

    General CommentI don't find this song annoying in excess at all. It's so light and uplifting, and beautiful. It can get me into a good mood any time. George is my favorite Beatle... the man had such a genuine, beautiful soul. I hope that wherever he is, he is at peace... but wasn't he already at peace on Earth? Love that man.

    General Commentthis song is amazing.

    i was born a little late, and in the wrong place, but had the circumstances been a little different i would have been an apple scruff. so would you :) and maybe you were!

    regardless we are all apple scruffs, this song is for us :)

    General CommentGreat song, and nice that he could give something back to them.

    Although I agree that "All things must pass" is an amazing album, I don't think there's any I'd add onto the Beatles albums.

    General CommentVery straightforward song about the female groupies outside the Apple offices. Great little melody and George on harmonica!
