It's remarkable that the Stones can pull off country music, which they do via the strange alchemy of Jagger's twangy camp and Richards' whiskey-stoned riffing. On this Some Girls outtake, from the forthcoming reissue, Mick plays it less over-the-top than he does on that LP's honky-tonk weeper, "Far Away Eyes," but with more cheek than the cover of Hank Williams' "You Win Again," also included on the reissue. The ghost of Gram Parsons was hovering, and probably pouring shots.
