Loving Cup

Album: Exile on Main St. (1971)
  • I'm the man on the mountain, come on up
    I'm the plowman in the valley with a face full of mud
    Yes, I'm fumbling and I know my car don't start
    Yes, I'm stumbling and I know I play a bad guitar

    Give me little drink
    From your loving cup
    Just one drink and I'll fall down drunk yeah

    I'm the man who walks the hillside in the sweet summer sun
    I'm the man that brings you roses when you ain't got none
    Well I can run and jump and fish, but I won't fight
    You if you want to push and pull with me all night

    Give me little drink
    From you loving cup
    Just one drink and I'll fall down drunk yeah

    I feel so humble with you tonight
    Just sitting in front of the fire
    See your face dancing in the flame
    Feel your mouth kissing me again
    What a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz
    What a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz
    Oh, what a beautiful buzz, what a beautiful buzz

    Yes, I am nitty gritty and my shirt's all torn
    But I would love to spill the beans with you till dawn

    Give me little drink
    From your loving cup
    Just one drink and I'll fall down drunk

    Give me little drink
    Give me little drink
    Give me little drink
    Give me little drink
    Give me little drink

    Give me little drink (keep on lovin', keep on lovin')
    Give me little drink
    Give me little drink (let's slow it down baby)
    Give me little drink
    Give me little drink
    Give me little drink

    Give me little drink
    Give me little drink
    Give me little drinkWriter/s: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger

  • Michael from Indianapolis, InPhish started playing this in concert in 1993 and has remained among the most played cover songs in the Phish live sets. Maybe that's why it received a greater love and acceptance.
  • Nate from New York, NyThis is an awesome tune.
  • Nate from New York, NyThe version on Shine a Light documentary with Jack White is amazing.
