"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. 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.   
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.
