Free As A Bird Original written and home recorded by John Lennon in 1977 released by The Beatles reaching number 2 in UK and number 6 in the USA in 1995 Bass performance Paul McCartney. Tab by bass50611. Thought it was time to tab all those missing notes, push notes slides etc that the other tabs have missed. Every verse is slightly different and if one really listens loads of slides, as tabbed below, at the end of the song.
