Lonesome Tears in My Eyes was recorded by Johnny Burnette and his Rock 'n' Roll Trio in March of 1957. He is given credit for writing the song, together with his brother Dorsey, Paul Burlison and Al Mortimer. The song was fairly obscure until it was covered famously by the Beatles in one of the BBC radio programs of 1963 called Pop! Go the Beatles. The song was taped only that one time by the group. The BBC recording was made on July 10 for the sixth edition of the program, which aired on July 23, 1963, and it was subsequently released in the collection, Live at the BBC. In hindsight, the most noteworthy feature of the song is its intro, which consists of a guitar riff and a bass line that John Lennon and Paul McCartney quote almost verbatim in the outro of the April 1969 recording of The Ballad of John and Yoko.
