Song facts

Give Us A Chord, Roy” is an unreleased song dating from 1980. It was part of a set of songs brought by Paul to George Martin for consideration for his new LP (to become Tug Of War). While some numbers were pretty strong, some like this one led George Martin to ask Paul to write some higher quality material.
