: Most Stones songs automatically get Jagger/Richards credit for writing. That's just the way it is. Keith and Brian came up with the song, and Brian really should get songwriting credit. Mick did the words.
Everything that I have heard has stated that "Ruby Tuesday" was one of the first songs that KEITH wrote both lyrics and (with help from Brian) music for...which makes sense, cause it really fits in with the rest of the Keith songbook ("Wild Horses", "You Got the Silver"...all the way down to stuff like "Eileen". Now, as far as the crediting of songs on Stones records, just ask Bill Wyman about that-See what kind of answer you get!
