ROLLING STONES LYRICS
 
  GOMPER

Recorded: August 10 - 12, 1967. Released on Their Satanic Majesties Request in December of 1967. There is a unreleased, instrumental version of this song that clocks in at almost 9 minutes; it has a lot less flute and organ, but more of the slide dulcimer. IMO, it's the better version and should have been released instead. Check it out on YouTube by clicking here.

Vocals
: Mick Jagger Tamboura, Slide Dulcimer, Sarod, Sitar, Flute, Organ, Bass, Tabla & other Percussion: Brian Jones Acoustic 12 String Guitar & Backing Vocals: Keith Richards Percussion: Charlie Watts

GOMPER
(Jagger, Richards)

By the lake with lilly flowers
Wile away the evening hours
To and fro she's gently gliding
On the glassy lake she's riding

She swims to the side
The sun sees her dried
The birds hover high
I'd stifle a cry

The birds hover high
She moans with a sigh
