“Gimme Some Truth”, Imagine, 1971

“Gimme Some Truth”, Imagine, 1971

John: Side Two starts with “Give Me Some Truth” which is one I started a year or two back – probably in India. We wrote a lot there. It was an old lick that I had around a long time but I again changed the lyrics. 

I like the track because it sounds good but it didn’t get much attention, so it’s a personal track that I like the sound of. The guitars are good and the voice sounds nice and, you know, and it says whatever it says. George does a sharp solo with his steel finger (he’s not too proud of it – but I like it). 

It’s about politicians, newspaper men and all the hypocrites of the world. And male chauvinists, it’s about them too. I think that music reflects the state that the society is in. There is nothing to hide.  

I think our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. And I think that’s what I sussed when I was 16 and 12, way down the line. But I expressed it differently all through my life. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends…..I think they’re all insane but I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.
