Ending is same as intro:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Miscellaneous info:

Note this figure played over the A chord in the verses.
John was really into this around the "Let It Be" years.
This is also the basis of the intro and main rhythm part
for "I've Got A Feeling."

-|--5---5----
-|--2--h3----
-|--2---2----
-|--2--h4----
-|--0---0----
-|-----------

(*) Note this little parallel 6ths figure played over the
first G chord in each verse. George had an endless
set of variations on this theme throughout the recording
which are not transcribed here.
