Did John do follow-ups/sequels to certain songs?

I read or heard somewhere that "Woman" was a matured follow-up to "Girl." Is "I'm Losing You" a sequel to "You're Going to Lose That Girl"?

I recall him making a comment like this. But I think you're taking what he said out of context. He never implied that any new song was a conscious follow-up or sequel to an old one. I believe what he was getting at was that he had matured, and his songs reflected this maturity. 15 years before he happened to write a song about chasing girls, today he wrote a song about loving his wife. It's a "sequel" or "follow-up" in the sense that it's a personal song about his own life.

Could Paul's "Nod Your Head" be a follow-up to "Helter Skelter"? I know "Jenny Wren" is a sequel to "Blackbird".
