    It was one of the first songs the Beatles (the then Quarry Men) wrote, along with Michelle and Love Me Do. But it wasn't recorded until Let It Be. I think it's the best song on that album.

    Is it just me or does this song remind anyone else of 'Roll Over Beethoven', the Chuck Berry song which the Beatles covered early on in their career?

    McCartney: It’s not a great song but it’s a great favourite of mine because it has great memories for me of John and I trying to write a bluesy freight-train song. There were a lot of those songs at the time, like “Midnight Special,” “Freight Train,” “Rock Island Line,” so this was the “One After 909;” she didn’t get the 909, she got the one after it! It was a tribute to British Rail, actually. No, at the time we weren’t thinking British, it was much more the Super Chief from Omaha.

    Lennon: The “One After 909,” on the whatsit LP, I wrote when I was 17 or 18. We always wrote separately, but we wrote together because we enjoyed it a lot sometimes, and also because they would say, well, you’re going to make an album together and knock off a few songs, just like a job.

    A brilliant move of theirs to revive this ancient song for inclusion on the "Get Back" (to their roots)album. It's great how true they were to the original recording, which suggests how ahead of their time they were back in the early '60's.
