This was originally recorded during sessions for the Don't Believe The Truth album, but was ditched from the final running order. It then became the title track for a documentary film that followed the band on their world tour of 2005/6.
This was Oasis' first ever digital-only single with no physical release. It's #10 placing meant that "Lord Don't Slow Me Down" equaled Nelly Furtado's "Say It Right" as the joint highest charting download-only single in the UK to that point.
The song is about the weariness of life on a tour bus.
Noel Gallagher has described this song as "Somewhat predictably brilliant."
Noel Gallagher told NME magazine: "That got left off the last album because it was the same verse all the way until the end. It's kind of locked into (the 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down') documentary now because it appears at the end of the film. It's quite rocking. It's just the 12 bar blues really, but it's good."
