A little rocker about the day John Lennon met Paul McCartney at the Woolton St. Peters Church Fair in 1957. The beginning of the Beatles. From the Strawberry Walrus album "Liverpool." Album and songs available on Amazon, iTunes, CDBaby, Rhapsody, and Napster.

Nestled in among the trees
St. Peter stands so tall
surrounded by worn tombstones
you can hear Eleanore's call.

Across the narrow street
stands the famed church hall
where Lennon first met McCartney
the meeting that started it all.

Johnny wore a slicked back smile(start chorus)
on a stage against the rear wall
he winked at all the pretty girls
as his skiffle group gave their all.

Shotton strummed his washboard
Garry plucked his tea chest bass
Come Go With Me had them rockin
the Quarrymen kept up the pace.(end chorus)

Woolton parish will never forget
the band playing at the fair
the fancy Rose Queen parade
and John's teddy boy hair.

Ivan introduced Paul to John
beside the stone church walls
a breeze of fame drifted by
on the day that started it all.

Johnny wore a slicked back smile(start chorus)
on a stage against the rear wall
he winked at all the pretty girls
as the skiffle group gave their all.

Shotton strummed his washboard
Garry plucked his tea chest bass
Come Go With Me had them rockin
the Quarrymen kept up the pace.(end chorus)
