"It's one of his masterpieces. I don't think I had anything to do with it. He said it was written about Julian, my child. He knew i was splitting with Cyn and leaving Julian. He was driving over to say hi to Julian. He'd been like an uncle to him. You know, Paul was always good with kids. And he came up with "Hey Jude."
But I've always heard it as a song to me. If you think about it...Yoko's just come into the picture. He's saying "Hey Jude - Hey John" I know I'm sounding like one of those fans who reads into it, but you can hear it as a song to me. The words "go out and get her" - subconsciously he was saying Go ahead, leave me. On a conscious level, he didn't want me to go ahead. The angel in him was saying "bless you." The devil in him didn't like it all because he didn't want to lose his partner."
-John Lennon, 1980
