Who knows? Nobody is really sure about the person owning the rights to the music of the Beatles. Although the arrangement of Maggie May allowed the Beatles to have rights over the song.
"The version they performed was spelt "Maggie Mae" on the track listing and all four Beatles were credited as arrangers of the traditional song, thus allowing them to collect the writers' share of the publishing income for this public domain song"
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

Id imagine that if its youre recording and as long as no one else owns it then youre fine, however if released/recorded by anyone else then someone will own that specific recording of the song so youd be breaking some law or other. I think the original lyrics and melody are free to cover and do as you please to.
