When issued as a single in May 1970, a month after the Beatles' break-up, it became the group's 20th and last number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States. It was the final single released by the quartet.

In 2011, Rolling Stone ranked The Long and Winding Road number 90 on their list of 100 greatest Beatles songs of all time. McCartney originally wrote the song at his farm in Scotland, and was inspired by the growing tension among the Beatles. But a few weeks ago, I was sent a re-mixed version of my song ‘The Long and Winding Road’ with harps, horns, an orchestra, and a women’s choir added. No one had asked me what I thought. I couldn’t believe it.

To the long winding road. На такой долгий путь. You left me standing here. A long long time ago. Я давным-давно. Don't leave me waiting here.

Paul McCartney offered this song to Tom Jones in 1968 on the condition it be his next single. He had "Without Love (There is Nothing)" set for release so he turned down the offer, something he would later regret. Speaking with Media Wales in 2012, Jones explained: "I saw him (McCartney) in a club called Scotts Of St. James on Jermyn Street in London. I said to him When are you going to write me a song then Paul? He said, aye I will then. Ken from Louisville, Ky"The Long And Winding Road" was also the name of a Beatles documentary made by Beatles' friend and Apple manager Neil Aspinall in 1970-71. None of the group agreed to participate in it, so the unfinished project was shelved until the early 1990's when it was expanded and had Paul, George and Ringo's participation.

Written by Paul McCartney, the song is a reflection on the journey of The Beatles. McCartney was extremely dissatisfied with the original version released on Let It Be mixed by Phil Spector who included a string arrangement over the original ballad. In 2003 Paul re-mixed the song and the rest of the album as Let It B. aked removing Spector’s production (check: The Long and Winding Road (Naked Version) ).

The road, this song is about, is the B842 in Scotland near Paul McCartney's High Park Farm close to Campbeltown. Scotland, in general, always inspired him. The song was meant to be a simple ballad, but the producer Phil Spector made it sound so differently that Paul McCartney greatly disliked the result, though George Harrison and John Lennon both supported Spector Naked" album released in 2003. The only song by The Beatles where John Lennon played bass. The Long And Winding Road" lyrics provided for educational purposes and personal use only.

Paul McCartney: "It's a sad song because it's all about the unattainable; the door you never quite reach. If ever there was a song which summed up the fraught nature of The Beatles' final months, it was The Long And Winding Road. He had a little spurt just before we split. I think the shock of Yoko Ono and what was happening gave him a creative spurt including Let It Be and Long And Winding Road, 'cause that was the last gasp from him. John Lennon All We Are Saying, David Sheff. The Long And Winding Road started out as a simple McCartney ballad, written in Scotland in 1968 at a time in which the cracks in The Beatles' relationships were become ever deeper
