   Eleanor Rigby
by John T. Marck




Eleanor Rigby

Next came Eleanor Rigby, an outstanding song by Paul, and recorded on April 28 and 29, and June 6, 1966. There are three stories behind its name. In their youth, Paul and John met at a church function at St. Peter's, Woolton. In the graveyard there is a stone with the name Eleanor Rigby, who died on October 10, 1939. It is believed that maybe Paul recalled this name from his subconscious years later. However, it is also said that Paul got the name from two sources. The name of "Rigby," was taken from a shop front in Bristol, and the name "Eleanor," came from his former co-star Eleanor Bron, in the film Help! You be the judge.

Ah, look at all the lonely people,

ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby,

picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been,

lives in a dream

waits at the window,

wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door,

who is it for?

all the lonely people,

where do they all come from?

all the lonely people,

where do they all belong?

Father McKenzie,

writing the words of a sermon that no one will hear,

no one comes near

look at him working,

darning his socks in the night when there's nobody there,

what does he care?

all the lonely people,

where do they all come from?

all the lonely people,

where do they all belong?

ah, look at all the lonely people,

ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby,

died in the church and was buried along with her name,

nobody came

Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt,

from his hands as he walks from the grave,

no one was saved

all the lonely people,

where do they all come from?

all the lonely people,

where do they all belong?
