"I Lost My Little Girl" is the first song written by Paul McCartney, when he was 14, in 1956. A performance of this song can be heard on McCartney's 1991 album Unplugged (The Official Bootleg).
McCartney wrote "I Lost My Little Girl" using his first guitar, a Framus Zenith (model 17) acoustic guitar, which he still owns.
A version of this song featuring John Lennon on lead vocals was performed by the Beatles during their Get Back sessions.
