Do Right By Your Woman

Album: Run With The Pack (1976)


  • Lead singer Paul Rodgers wrote this song, which has a very forthright message: Do right by your woman, and she'll do right by you.
  • This is a campfire song - literally. The Run With The Pack album was recorded in France using a mobile recording unit owned by the Rolling Stones. "The mobile studio was parked about 50 yards away and we were sat around the campfire just playing this song of Paul Rodgers," Bad Company drummer Simon Kirke told Songfacts. The engineer said, 'Guys, this sounds so good, come and hear it.'

    We said, 'What?'

    'Well, I've recorded it. I put a microphone out while you weren't watching.'

    We went in and, blow me down, it sounded great. There was a couple of crackles from the fire and we thought, 'Yeah, that's cool.'"
