"For You Blue" is a Beatles song written by George Harrison .
"For You Blue" was the B-side to "The Long and Winding Road" (in the U.S.) and the eleventh track on The Beatles' final LP release, Let It Be. "For You Blue" was listed with "The Long and Winding Road" as a double-sided hit when the single hit number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1970.
The song features John Lennon playing lap steel guitar with a shotgun shell as shown in the Let It Be movie. Harrison makes a few spoken comments during the song, including, "Go, Johnny, go" during Lennon's solo, and "Elmore James got nothing on this baby", perhaps referring to James' song "Madison Blues" which is similar to "For You Blue".
The song's working title was "George's Blues (Because You're Sweet and Lovely)" when it was recorded on 25 January 1969. It was renamed sometime between 10 March and 28 May when it was listed as "For You.
