The Civil War: All In One

by John T. Marck


Revolver begins with a great song written by George Harrison titled Taxman. In this, George is rebelling against British taxes, whereby over time, he figured that most of their earnings went to taxes. Although George was The Beatles lead guitar player, the famous opening riff, believed by many to be played by George, was actually done by Paul. It was recorded on April 21 and 22, and May 16, 1966.

Let me tell you how it will be,

There's one for you, nineteen for me,

Cause I'm the taxman,, yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five percent appear too small,

Be thankful I don't take it all,

'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,

If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat

If you get too cold, I'll tax the heat,

If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet, taxman,

'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Don't ask me what I want it for

(ha ha Mr. Wilson),

If you don't want to pay some more (ha ha Mr. Heath)

'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die,

Declare the pennies on your eyes,

'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

And you're working for no one but me
