A new video has surfaced on YouTube that uses Google Maps to take fans on a world tour using only Beatles lyrics as a guide.

You can watch the full video above.

The almost-13 minute video begins in the Fab Four's hometown of Liverpool. The clip covers 25,510 miles worldwide from places like Penny Lane and Strawberry Field to Sir Macca and John Lennon's childhood homes that were references to their respective parents in songs of "Julia" and "Let it Be".

Halfway through, the video takes fans to Paris via "The Ballad of John and Yoko" with a pitstop at Eiffel Tower for "I Am the Walrus" and proceeding to Amsterdam, Vienna and Gibraltar. "Back in the U.S.S.R." will then take you to Ukraine, Moscow, Georgia and finally stopping in Rishikesh where the song was written while the Beatles were studying Transcendental Meditation. The place also inspired songs like "Dear Prudence" and "Sexy Sadie".

"Honey Pie" then takes you to the Atlantic Ocean before reaching Kansas City with the same song title reference. The video also takes you to New York's Central Park to revisit "Strawberry Fields Forever".

Daily Beatle had pointed out several flaws in the video which are difficult to notice unless you're well versed in Beatles history. One example they had given was the part where the video claims Sir Macca was inspired by Eleanor Rigby's gravestone in St. Peter's Church. However, McCartney had mentioned that he took inspiration from actress Eleanor Bron from "Help!" movie and a local Bristol shop called Rigsby.
