(End) Background: http://www.beatlesbible.com/people/john-lennon/albums/imagine/ Comment from Rolling Stone: "Crippled Inside", Imagine, 1971 Lennon followed the opening peace anthem on his second album with this grenade wrapped in rockabilly rhythm and prairie-saloon piano, with a slinky country-boy solo on dobro by George Harrison. The chorus 'One thing you can't hide, Is when you're crippled inside.' may have been a slap at ex-bandmate Paul McCartney (who would get it full blast on Side Two, in 'How Do You Sleep?'). But when Lennon wrote in the second person, he often did it staring into a mirror." http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/twenty-underappreciated-john-lennon-solo-songs-20101210
