  1. My friend Brian adds:

    1) It doesn’t go to “better better better better better waaaaa” until the end. Chart says it goes there after every verse.

    2) It’s “the minute you let her under your skin,” not “remember to let her under your skin.”

    3) The entire bridge is missing (“any time you feel the pain, Hey Jude, refrain…”)

    4) There’s a whole verse missing as well (“so let it out and let it in, Hey Jude, begin…”)
