None, to my knowledge. Unless there's a bootleg where he sings.

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

It appears that there was nothing for him. Ringo had a few very fragmentary songs he had wrote and sung during the sessions but there was nothing substantial, even 'Octopuses Garden' was rudimentary before George got involved. Paul was trying to get a whole group organised, together and recording whilst not pissing off the group. John was trying to get enough material for himself and get himself together - or even if it was worth the bother trying. George was trying to get his own material played.

Maybe even in 1969 Ringo would still have belted out 'Boys' or 'I Wanna Be Your Man' if they had went thru with the plans for a concert on top of the Pyramids.

Ringo does crop up singing Taking a Trip to Carolina on the Let It Be... Naked bonus disc Fly on the Wall. Truth is, though, it's more of a couplet than a song ("Taking a trip on an ocean liner / I'm gonna get to Carolina").

I was curious if Ringo did much singing during the Let It Be sessions because I haven't really explored many of the bootlegs and I haven't seen the film in a long time so I couldn't remember.

Thanks for clearing this up for me.

Ringo also sang Octopus's Garden during these sessions and said hold it at the beginning of Dig A Pony.

I'm excluding any spoken word parts but it is interesting that he didn't have any songs during those sessions but it makes sense considering John and Paul were busy with their own compositions at that stage.

Speaking of which.. I've not seen the Let It Be film, does anybody know somewhere good to locate it?

You can find it on archive.org if you don't want to buy a copy, there's also unofficial DVDs floating out there as well as an official VHS and Laserdisc release.
