Parachute Woman

Album: Beggars Banquet (1968)
  • Parachute woman, land on me tonight
    Parachute woman, land on me tonight
    I'll break big in New Orleans
    And I'll overspill in Caroline

    Parachute woman, join me for a ride
    Parachute woman, join me for a ride
    I'll make my blow in Dallas
    And get hot again in half the time

    Parachute woman, will you blow me out?
    Parachute woman, will you blow me out?
    Well, my heavy throbbers itchin'
    Just to lay a solitary rhythm down Writer/s: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger

  • Ken from Booneville,ms, MsDave Mason on lead guitar, listen Mick say "DAVE" right before the solo
  • James from Bronx, NyAWESOME. My heavy throbbers itchin just to lay a solid rhythm down! One of the highlights of Rock n Roll Circus
  • Reed from New Ulm, MnHave the Stones EVER put out a bad song?...if so, i sure don't know of any. as they say:
    " a rolling stone gathers no moss "
  • Craig from Melbourne, AustraliaBallsy song that should be performed live more.
  • Shannan from Wilmington, DeGreat Song! I Love The Stones! The Who were the best on Rock and Roll Circus!
  • Andrew from New York, United StatesI don't know this for a fact, but to me that slide part sounds like Keith. Brian's slide parts tend to be more melodic and single-note-y. This part is more chord-based, raunchy, and altogether more Keef-ish, to my ears. Certainly Keith was already playing great slide on the following LP, "Let It Bleed"- "Monkey Man" and "Love In Vain" are both Keith's slide, and I suspect the title cut is Keith too. Anyone know for sure?
  • Sammy from New York, NyI agree, excellent blues tune. I always loved it when the Stones played the blues like Love in Vain, Stop Breaking Down, Little Red Rooster.
  • Mike from Berkeley, CaLove Brian Jones slide guitar. I saw him play it on Rock'n Roll Circus, but his glass bottleneck hit the frets and kind of screwed up the sound. That isn't apparent on this cut. Great blues song. One of the Stones finest.
