Chaos and Creation in the Backyard track listing

Friends to Go is a song written by Paul McCartney for his 2005 album, Chaos and Creation in the Backyard. McCartney has said that he thought it was similar to something George Harrison may have composed.

Paul McCartney confessed he was helped by George Harrison's spirit to write the song and lyrics for 'Waiting For Your Friends To Go', over three years after the Beatles guitarist's death. McCartney, 63, said he felt Harrison's spirit when he wrote the song, arguing he's unsure about the meaning of the lyrics. "The funny thing about it was I felt as if I was almost George Harrison during the writing of that song," said McCartney. "I just got this feeling, this is George. So it was like I was writing - I was like George - writing one of his songs. So I just wrote it, it just wrote itself very easily 'cause it wasn't even me writing it."
