origin of “Golden Slumbers” from Abbey Road:

One day while Paul was visiting his father at his Cheshire home, he began playing the piano, and looked through a songbook that belonged to his step-sister, Ruth. (His father, James had remarried by this time.) In this book he came across a traditional lullaby by Thomas Dekker from the 17th century. But, as he was unable to read music, he began to make up his own melody and new lyrics, and “Golden Slumbers” was born.
