The Beatles’ legendary musician John Lennon’s official Instagram page shared a golden-worth memorabilia from 1972 that Yoko Ono and John exposes the real truth behind the lyrics of The Luck of the Irish.

As you will read the text below, Yoko Ono and John stated that The Luck of the Irish referred that the deepest sympathies must surely go to the victims of British and American imperialism. ⠀

Here is the letter’s P.S section:

“LETTER TO DISC READERS, 18 Jan 1972 (cont.)⠀
P.S. of course we sympathise with soldiers who are killer or wounded – anywhere, as we feel for the poor American soldiers forced to fight in Vietnam, but our deepest sympathies must surely go to the victims of British and American imperialism. ⠀
Our song says, “blame it all on the kids and the I.R.A.” which means, ‘let’s not kid ourselves that the cause of the troubles in Ireland is the people of Ireland’s fault, whether they be children, religious freaks or the I.R.A. – the real cause of the problem is British Imperialism as the song says, “why the hell are the English there anyway?”⠀
love⠀
John Lennon⠀
Yoko O’no”
