Which Beatles song contains the lyrics, “One thing I can tell you is you got to be free”?
Answer: “Come Together” is a song by the Beatles written primarily by John Lennon.
The song started as Lennon’s attempt to write a song for Timothy Leary’s campaign for governor of California against Ronald Reagan, which promptly ended when Leary was sent to prison for possession of marijuana. His slogan was ‘Come together, join the party’.
Lennon sent Leary a demo tape of song ideas. However, when Leary was imprisoned for cannabis possession the campaign ended, enabling Lennon to record the song with The Beatles.
