A lost George Harrison song from 1970, appealing for The Beatles to play together once again, has been discovered by his widow Olivia, stored inside his piano bench. Handwritten lyrics for the song, Hey Ringo, in which George says his guitar-playing is incomplete without his friend’s beat, had been left untouched for decades inside the stool at the couple’s Oxfordshire home. After discovering the “time capsule”, Mrs Harrison has presented the lyrics to Ringo Starr. It is hoped that the Beatles’ drummer might turn the lyrics into a song. “There was a folder in George’s piano bench and inside I found a typed lyric for Hey, Ringo. It think it dates from around 1970.” Olivia Harrison George, the “quiet one” who died in 2001, may even have recorded some music for the track on a home cassette, she believes. Hey, Ringo lyric An imagined conversation between George and Ringo, the lyric begins: “Hey Ringo, now I want you to know, that without you my guitar plays far too slow.” Harrison goes on to tell his musical soulmate “I’ve heard no drummer who can play it quite like you.” The song was apparently written in the aftermath of the Beatles’ painful split, which was confirmed to the world by Paul McCartney in April 1970.
