"Oh Woman, Oh Why" is a song by musician Paul McCartney. It was first released on the Apple Records label in February 1971 as the B-side to "Another Day", his debut solo single. The release achieved top-5 status on both sides of the Atlantic, reaching U.S. #5 and U.K. #2 in April 1971.[1] The song has been praised for McCartney's impressive range of pitch.

This B-side "Oh Woman, Oh Why" is a tense, blusey rocker with a rip-roaring vocal from Paul. Combined with drummer Seiwell's thunderous drumming, "Oh Woman, Oh Why" establishes a solid foundation upon which tight guitar lines interweave. McCartney's gritty vocal is one of his best and provides some convincing authenticity to this blues based rocker. [2] [3] [3]

Although "Another Day" and "Oh Woman, Oh Why" were not originally released as part of a Paul McCartney album, they were released as bonus tracks on later editions of Ram.
