In the night, there are sights to be seen
Stars like jewels on the crown of a Queen
But the only sight I wanna view
Is that wonderful picture of you

On a Streetcar, or in the café
All of the evening, and most of the day
My mind is in a maze what can I do?
I still see that picture of you

It was last summer, I fell in love
My heart told me what to do
I saw you there on the crest of a hill
An' I took a little picture of you

Then you were gone, like a dream in the night
With you went my heart, my love and my life
I didn't know your name, what could I do?
I only had a picture of you

Then you were gone, like a dream in the night
With you, went my heart, my love and my life
I didn't know your name, what could I do?
I only had a picture of you, oh yeah
That wonderful picture of you,
I'm left with a picture of, oh yeah
That wonderful picture of you

    General CommentSounds like a Bruce Springsteen composition almost, with those guitar licks, piano bursts, and complimentary saxophones. Still a great song nonetheless. Did he perform this song with the E-Street Band?

    General CommentI just love the vocals on this song--George always had a way with his voice. Even though it was said that he didn't have the best singing voice in the Beatles, I believe that his voice was always very unique and brilliant. It is really hard to explain it though...Anyways, love the album "Extra Texture (Read All About It)!
