Song facts

Sunday Rain” is a song by the American rock band Foo Fighters, appearing on Concrete and Gold, their ninth studio album released in 2017. Paul McCartney contributed to this song, by playing drums.

From HotPress, September 15, 17:

Paul McCartney shows up behind the kit on ‘Sunday Rain’, which is pretty ironic, as it’s the kind of thing his mate Lennon used to knock out around Imagine, especially the verse melody “borrowed” from ‘How Do You Sleep?’.

Lyrics

You say I take it for granted
I say you've taken it all
Say you can take it or leave it
You got your head in the ceiling
When are you gonna come down?
When you're that high, can you feel it?

Don't leave me drowning in your Sunday rain
It's right down the drain I go
Don't leave me drowning in your Sunday rain
It's always a shame, oh no

You wanna tell me a secret
You think I'm gonna find out
You tell the lie, you should keep it
Don't wanna know where it's leading
Don't want to follow you 'round
My first mistake was believing

Don't leave me drowning in your Sunday rain
It's right down the drain I go
Don't leave me drowning in your Sunday rain
It's always a shame, oh no

Are you a little afraid?
A little alone?
A little exhausted?
Do you give it away?
Do you let go?
Where do you find it?

Don't leave me drowning in your Sunday rain
It's right down the drain I go
Don't leave me drowning in your Sunday rain
It's always a shame, oh no

Don't leave me drowning in your Sunday rain
It's right down the drain I go
Don't leave me drowning in your Sunday rain
It's always a shame, oh no

Are you a little afraid?
A little alone?
A little exhausted?
Do you give it away?
Do you let go?
How do you find it?

Are you a little afraid?
A little alone?
A little exhausted?
Do you give it away?
Do you let go?
How do you find it?

Are you a little afraid?
A little alone?
A little exhausted?
Do you give it away?
Do you let go?

Howdy! Isn't the intro to this song too similar to Lennon's "How do you sleep"? Guitar, vocals, everything sounds so similar! I'd rather think it's some sort of tribute to John, but then I find out Paul McCartney is involved in the song playing the drums... please share your thoghts!
