History of the song:
Original release date 1966
Album: Revolver

It was primarily written by John Lennon about one of his first LSD trips. Even though the song is called "She Said She Said" the opening lyric, "I know what it's like to be dead" was a remark made to Lennon while he was on acid with Peter Fonda.
Fonda recalled that in an attempt to soothe Harrison, who he says was having a bad trip, Fonda remarked that he knew what it's like to be dead, recalling an incident in his childhood in which he had almost died after accidentally shooting himself.
Fonda also recalled that an annoyed Lennon said in response, "You're making me feel like I've never been born." Legend has it that Lennon had Fonda removed immediately because he was "freaking him out". In a surviving early demo of the song the lyric is 'He Said He Said' in clear relation to Fonda, with Lennon later changing the gender to female.
