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."

(*)  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.
