To Kill A Mockingbird Let it be - the beatles- John lennon & paul mccartney

The song Let It Be by The Beatles, written by John Lennon & Paul McCartney is about letting things be the way they are and accepting things for the way they are. This song ties to To Kill A Mockingbird because Atticus is trying to teach his children, Jem & Scout, to accept things the way they are in their society with the way African Americans are treated and the way justice in the courts are handled.

The photogrid explains Alabama in the 1930's between the the lynching mobs, the towns during the Depression, and justice being handled.

When I find myself in times of trouble

Mother Mary comes to me

Speaking words of wisdom

Let it be

And in my hour of darkness

She is standing right in front of me

Speaking words of wisdom

Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be

Whisper words of wisdom

Let it be

And when the broken-hearted people

Living in the world agree

There will be an answer

Let it be

For though they may be parted there is

Still a chance that they will see

There will be an answer

Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be

Yeah, there will be an answer

Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be

Whisper words of wisdom

Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be

Whisper words of wisdom

Let it be

And when the night is cloudy

There is still a light that shines on me

Shine until tomorrow

Let it be

I wake up to the sound of music

Mother Mary comes to me

Speaking words of wisdom

Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be

There will be an answer

Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be

There will be an answer

Let it be

Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be

Whisper words of wisdom

Let it be
