(jagger/richards)Exile on mainstreet, it’s a strange street to walk downExile on mainstreet, it’s a strange street to walk down[all down the line]Mmm heard the diesel drumming all down the lineMmm heard the wires a-humming all down the lineOh, yeah heard the women sighing all down the lineOh, yeah heard the children crying all down the lineAll down the line we’ll be watching out for trouble, yeah[tumbling dice]Women think I’m tastyBut they’re always trying to waste meAnd make me burn the candle right downBut baby, baby I don’t need no jewels in my frown’cause all you women is low down gamblersCheating like I don’t know howBut baby there’s a fever in the funk house nowThis low down bitchings got my poor feet a-itchingDo you know the deuce is still wildBaby can’t stay, you got to roll meAnd call me the tumbling dice[intro]Exile on mainstreet, it’s a strange street to walk downNow let it loose, now come on, let it all hang downEh round up those people, move them out of townGimmie little drink from your loving cupNow shake your hip mama, keep me all shook upFeeling so doggone happy like a natural childOh help me do the boogie all down the lineCome on virginia, let’s shoot some diceMy sweet black angel, shine a light[shine a light]Saw you stretched out in room ten o nineWith a smile on your face and a tear right in your eyeCouldn’t see to get a line on you, my sweet honey loveBerber, jewelry jangling down the streetMaking bloodshot eyes at every woman that you meetCome out baby to get a high on you, my sweet honey loveMay the good lord shine a light on youMake every song you sing your favorite tuneMay the good lord shine a light on youWarm like the evening sun.Well you’re drunk in the alley baby...[happy]Never kept a dollar past sunsetIt always burned a hole in my pantsNever made a school mama happy,Never blew a second chanceI need a love to keep me happy,I need a love to keep me happyBaby baby keep me happy,Baby keep me happyAlways took candy from strangers,Didn’t want to get me no tradeNever want to be like papa,Working for the boss every night and dayI need a love to keep me happy,I need a love to keep me happyBaby baby keep me happy,Baby baby keep me happy[outro]Exile on mainstreet, it’s a strange street to walk downExile on mainstreet, it’s a low down dirty ground.
