Thinking of John Lennon and “Strawberry Fields”

 

I studied “Rock Poetry” in High School in the 1970’s.  It was one of my favorite memories from High School.  We analyzed Cat Stevens and the songs by the Beatle the most.

I know that Strawberry Fields is about a Salvation Army boy’s home near John Lennon’s home as a boy.  He loved to play in the back yard with his friends.

There are a lot of websites that talk about his Aunt telling him not to go there, and he told her that they couldn’t hang him for it – so that is where the line came from “nothing to be hung about”.

The memorial area in Central Park for John Lennon is called Strawberry Fields.

I still think of an actual field of ripe strawberries when I hear the phrase, even though I know all that!

Lyrics by John Lennon

Let me take you down ‘Cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields Nothing is real And nothing to get hung about Strawberry Fields forever
Living is easy with eyes closed Misunderstanding all you see It’s getting hard to be someone But it all works out It doesn’t matter much to me
Let me take you down ‘Cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields Nothing is real And nothing to get hung about Strawberry Fields forever
No one I think is in my tree I mean it must be high or low That is you can’t, you know, tune in But it’s all right That is I think it’s not too bad
Let me take you down ‘Cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields Nothing is real And nothing to get hung about Strawberry Fields forever
Always, no sometimes, think it’s me But you know I know when it’s a dream I think I know I mean a yes But it’s all wrong That is I think I disagree
Let me take you down ‘Cause I’m going to Strawberry Fields Nothing is real And nothing to get hung about Strawberry Fields forever Strawberry Fields forever Strawberry Fields forever

    It is one of my favorite Beatle songs.It was also one of the most complex songs the Beatles recorded up to that time.
