HONKY TONK WOMEN

The last track Brian Jones recorded with the Stones, on March 10 & 11, 1969. But his guitar was edited out and Mick Taylor's guitar was dubbed in at the last minute, before it's release as a single in the UK on July 3, 1969. Also released as a US single on July 11, 1969, went to # 1 on the charts in both the US and UK.

HONKY TONK WOMEN
(Jagger/Richards)

I met a gin soaked, bar-room queen in Memphis,
She tried to take me upstairs for a ride.
She had to heave me right across her shoulder
'Cause I just can't seem to drink you off my mind.

It's the honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues.

I laid a divorcee in New York City,
I had to put up some kind of a fight.
The lady then she covered me with roses,
She blew my nose and then she blew my mind.

It's the honky tonk women
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues.

(Yeah!)  It's the honky tonk women.
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues.

(Yeah!)  It's the honky tonk women.
Gimme, gimme, gimme the honky tonk blues.
