This song it a little underrated in my opinion. Been listening to it a lot lately. Fantastic tune.
Every time I hear that guitar part that George plays though I think of the movie where Paul was being all bossy trying to tell him how to play it. Poor George!
"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been.. I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene.. Banjos! Banjos! All the time, I can't forget that tune.. and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Anyone else notice the guitar riff in this song sounds a little bit similar to Elvis's In the Ghetto? I did wonder if The Beatles had heard In the Ghetto as I think they watched Elvis's comeback special during the same period as the Get Back sessions. But when I checked I think Elvis recorded his song a little later so it wasn't done on the special.
So was the writer of In the Ghetto influenced by I've Got A Feeling ? Or other possibilities are there's another song which both songs took their influence from or perhaps any similarity is pure coincidence. There is a song John wrote much later "I Know (I Know)" where he used a variation of the riff again.
Incidentally was the riff Paul's or John's?
