Wild Horses

This slow-dance country ballad off Sticky Fingers is about co-songwriter Keith Richards really not wanting to leave his two-month-old son behind to go on tour: hence the chorus "Wild horses couldn't drag me away." Richards said he came up with the equine phrase, and Mick Jagger elaborated upon it. "Let me put it this way: I'd say, 'Mick, it goes like this: Wild horses couldn't drag me away.' Then it would be a division of labor, Mick filling in the verses," Richards told Rolling Stone.
