Cloud Nine

'Cloud Nine' or 'Cloud 9'

I am seeking the origin of this much-used phrase. Did it exist before the George Harrison lyric, and if so where does it come from and what does it refer to? Or did he originate it himself? An extensive web search has failed to shed any light...

Please help...
