Come Together is een nummer van The Beatles, voornamelijk geschreven door John Lennon, hoewel het zoals gebruikelijk toegeschreven is aan Lennon-McCartney. Het is het openingsnummer van het in 1969 uitgekomen album Abbey Road. Een maand na het uitkomen van het album werd de song ook uitgebracht als single, samen met Something van George Harrison.

Omdat de eerste zin uit de song heel sterk lijkt op een stuk tekst uit "You Can't Catch Me" van Chuck Berry, spande de uitgever van diens muziek Morris Levy een proces aan tegen Lennon. De tekst uit "Come Together" luidt "Here come ol' flattop, he come groovin' up slowly", terwijl het bij Chuck Berry klinkt als "Here come up flattop, he was groovin' up with me".

Lennon beloofde Levy te vergoeden door drie nummers op te nemen uit zijn catalogus. De opbrengsten zouden dan naar Levy gaan en niet naar Lennon. Twee van deze nummers, "You Can't Catch Me" en "Ya Ya" stonden op Lennons album "Rock 'n' Roll" uit 1975, terwijl de derde, "Angel Baby" maar na zijn dood gepubliceerd werd.

Het nummer is door veel artiesten vertolkt, onder wie The Supremes, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Joe Cocker en Aerosmith. De Duitse rockband Kin Ping Meh zong het nummer op hun album No. 2 in 1972.
