    Kind of like happiness is a warm gun alluded to both Lennon's severe heroin addiction and his overwhelming sexual lust for Yoko, heroin in many circles at that time gave heroin a feminine reference. The heroin experience from the high was both euphoric and heavy!

    It could be referring to the war and Uncle Sam sending the young to war. "I want you". Also by "she's so heavy" it could mean the weight of lady liberty.

    They really like to find words they can scream. "Heavy" I was looking up the word "Light" and it means without darkness. This songs is a heavy minor key with winding guitar lines and repeat like a chant to Hell. I think someone got "heavily" hung up on a girl. "boy you're gonna carry that weight for a longtime" comes to mind.

    It's about Paul's drug habit. He want's it so, bad that it is driving him mad. Read the book. A Hard Day's Write. It will help you to know the real meanings of the words of The Beatles songs. And what they all mean.

    John Lennon said this song was about Yoko no other explanation needed.

    This song is about a girl that's hot and back in the late 60` heavy was a slang for pretty much anything that was cool
