Does anybody know why there are two different versions of this song, one that has the harmonica playing in the intro and one that doesn't? Is it a stereo/mono thing?

Yes. Same with 'Thank You Girl ' and there being additional harmonica in places on one not on the other.

Haha I came to this thread specifically to ask this question, well I guess, my question is answered.

I didn't know "Thank You Girl " was this way too.  Are these the only two?

@William Shears Campbell There are quite a lot of songs with differences, big and small, between mixes. Another example would be something like All My Loving  - standard version opens with four hi-hat taps, the version released in Germany and Holland opens with five hi-hat taps and an intake of breath.

The Usenet Guide to Beatles Recordings Variations is something you might find interesting. I believe it was originally compiled as part of someone's degree course, and is a great resource on the different mixes that cropped up around the world.
