Formal structure of  "Carry That Weight":
Reprise of "You Never Give Me Your Money"
0:35-0:44 [guitar solo]
0:44-1:07 "You never give me your money..."
Comments: A drum fill very similar to the one that introduces  "Mean Mr. Mustard" launches "Carry That Weight" into its anthem-like chorus, which consists of a 4-bar phrase that is immediately repeated. Upon the repetition, it segues into the reprise of "You Never Give Me Your Money", first with brass, then a guitar solo, and finally with the lyrics.
The coda functions both as a further reprise of "You Never Give Me Your Money" (the guitar arpeggios having been used to conclude that track are heard again), and as a transition into  "The End".
