“(Sweet Home) Country Girl” is an unreleased song recorded by Paul McCartney during the Flaming Pie sessions, with the participation of Steve Miller.
One was an instrumental and I think McCartney just made up some lyrics on it — ‘Soul Boy’ is that one. And ‘Sweet Home Country Girl’ is a little blues tune that I’d been working on for years. And we did a bunch of tunes and we recorded a bunch of stuff. But, y’know, just because Paul McCartney’s on it doesn’t mean it’s a hit, or it’s a great song, or it’s fabulous, or ‘Man, this is the best piece of work I ever heard! You gotta put this out.’ And so, if it doesn’t come out, there’s usually a reason for it.Steve Miller, talking to Howie Edelson, for Beatlefan magazine
[(Sweet Home) Country Girl is] a song I’d been working on for a long time and never finished. It starts off kind of like a delta tune that had some nice changes and ‘my baby lives in the city, but in her heart she’s a country girl’ kind of stuff.Steve Miller, from the 2020 Flaming Pie Archive Collection book
