Order of Lennon.

Paul McCartney has buried the hatchet with Yoko Ono after a dispute over the songwriting credits of some of the best-known Beatles songs.

A row broke out after the McCartney reversed the renowned Lennon-McCartney credits of Beatles songs on his latest album.

But yesterday the singer - who last night concluded his world tour in Liverpool - said: "I'm happy with the way it is and always has been. Lennon and McCartney is still the rock 'n' roll trademark I'm proud to be a part of - in the order it has always been."

The ex-Beatle asked his songwriting partner's widow to approve the change during the production of The Beatles Anthology album in order to denote songs which were in the most part his own creations. Yoko Ono refused but all 20 Beatles songs appearing on McCartney's latest Back in the US live album were reversed to McCartney-Lennon.
