Song facts

I’ll Wait Till Tomorrow” is an early Lennon – McCartney composition. The Beatles covered it on the second day of the “Get Back” sessions (January 3rd, 1969).

From Early Beatles Songs:

Little is known of this track, which turned up during the Get Back sessions of 1969. On recordings from January 3, McCartney turns his attention from “One After 909”, mentioning that Pete Shotton had recently reminded him of this song. Accordingly he leads off singing, with Lennon joining in, during a session where oldies were very much on their minds. 

Given its style and the fact that McCartney leads, it seems reasonable to assume that it is his song – although nothing else can be inferred. Some sources, including Walter Everett, name the song as “If Tomorrow Ever Comes”, as per some bootlegs.

I’ll wait until tomorrow
Till you come my way
That’s why I sit here
Alone and I pray…

But I’ll wait till tomorrow
Through a thousand setting suns
I’ll wait till tomorrow
If tomorrow ever comes…
