"Crippled Inside" is a song written and performed by John Lennon from his 1971 album Imagine.

Background[edit]

Lennon recorded "Crippled Inside" on 26 May 1971 at Ascot Sound Studios, during the sessions for his Imagine album. [1] Robert Christgau believed its "good-time ricky-tick" rhythm lent the song a "folk-rock in disguise" identity.[2]

Covers[edit]

The jam band Widespread Panic covered the song a number of times during their Summer 2007 Tour, with the band contributing a version to the benefit album Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur.

The song was performed on the US television show The Voice by Blake Shelton and his team, in April 2017.
