C’est à la naissance de sa fille Mary, en 1969, que Paul McCartney a composé cette mélodie, inspiré par une reproduction de la toile de Picasso “Le Vieux guitariste”.

En 2008, un internaute surnommé yaronam a repris la mélodie de McCartney, en a fait un nouvel arrangement et y a ajouté des paroles afin d’en faire une chanson plus complète. Voici le résultat.

Et voici ce que yaronam dit de son travail:

“The first time I heard the song was when McCartney played bits of it on the “Parkinson” BBC TV Show a while ago. The thing is, he uses only 2 fingers for the chords, thus the name “two fingers”.
I did it as well on the bridge part.
I played around with it,changed it a bit, arranged it differently, added words (it didn’t have any clear words even on his unreleased song “When the wind is blowing”) I added a bridge part,and that’s about it.
I’m playing a Takamine 12 string guitar F400 model from way back in the early 80’s.
I have no commercial intention,
it’s just played for fun.
I wish Paul would listen to this,
and tell me what he thinks. But that’s just a silly dream.
Anyway, Here are the lyrics:

Waiting, I’ll be seeing her inside the empty fair,
Rusty ferris wheel, Dusty teddy bears

No Sideshows, the roller coaster sleeps Beneath a yellow sky,
And I’m still Hoping my love will drop by

Baby, don’t let me down
Hurry, don’t stand around
I’m sitting here, no circus in town

Waiting, waiting for my love

Who sighs? it’s just the whispering wind that’s Passing by,
Who cries? It’s just the sand in my eyes, that makes the tears Fall down, my dear,
but Never mind, you know I’ll still be here
Never mind, you know I’ll still be here
Never mind you know I’ll still be…(waiting)

Waiting for the only one
That I am thinking of
Waiting, waiting for my love

Baby, don’t let me down
Hurry, don’t wait around
I’m sitting here, no circus in town

Waiting, waiting for my love
