James Corden cries during Paul McCartney carpool

They then leave the auto to visit the barber's shop mentioned in the song - leaving the owner in sheer disbelief.

The 76-year-old former Beatle delighted viewers with a tour around his hometown of Liverpool along with an iconic trip to Penny Lane.

In a break with Carpool Karaoke tradition, the veteran singer then took the wheel and drove Corden - who appeared visibly starstruck - around the streets of Liverpool.

The joyous "Carpool Karaoke" concluded at a local pub, the Philharmonic Dining Rooms, where The Beatles used to play when they were just starting out. "Can you please, please help me" before joining Paul in a rendition of Drive My Car.

During the conversation, Sir Paul revealed he wrote his first song at the age of 14, titled I Lost My Little Girl, before treating fans to a snippet.

In the midst of singing the classic together, Corden's eyes began to well up.


Throughout their journey, he pointed out notable landmarks from his youth, including a church where he was once in the choir. "I'll never ever forget it. Take a breath and jump in", Corden tweeted on Thurs.

He agreed, saying: "We expected it to last 10 years, but it keeps going on, and on, and on".

When the 18-time Grammy victor explained to Corden that The Beatles' "Let It Be" was inspired by a dream he had about his mother, the late-night host started tearing up. "She said, 'Let it be.' That's kind of good.' So I wrote the song 'Let It Be, ' but it was her positivity".

The guys then ended up at a pub where Paul surprised the locals by performing several songs for an emotional crowd.

They then headed to the rocker's childhood home in Allerton, South Liverpool.

Explaining why the moment got him so choked up, Corden said, "I can remember my granddad, who was a musician, and my dad, sitting me down and saying, 'We're going to play you the best song you've ever heard".
