John Lennon letters and lyrics presented to the British Library

Strawberry Fields Forever lyrics


  • Manuscripts of the lyrics to The Beatles hit songs Strawberry Fields Forever, She Said She Said and In My Life, handwritten by John Lennon, have been donated to the British Library under the new Cultural Gifts Scheme, introduced by the Government earlier this year. Hunter Davies, the acclaimed Beatles biographer and current owner of the documents, had loaned some of the items to the British Library in the past; and these, together with some previously unseen material, are to be formally handed over to the nation at an event at the British Library later today.
