Every time I'm walking all down the street Some pretty mama start breaking down on me Stop breaking down, baby, please, stop breaking down Stuff is gonna bust your brains out, baby Yeah, gonna make you lose your mind
You Saturday night women, now, you just ape and clown You don't do nothing but tear my reputation down Stop breaking down, mama, please, stop breaking down Stuff is gonna bust your brains out, baby Yeah, it's gonna make you lose your mind, alright, alright
I love my baby ninety nine degrees That mama got a pistol, laid it down on me Stop breaking down, baby, please, stop breaking down Stuff is gonna bust your brains out, baby Yeah, gonna make you lose your mind
Every time I'm walking all down the street Some pretty woman start breaking down on me Stop breaking down, mama, please, stop breaking down Shit is gonna bust your brains out, baby Gonna make you lose your mind

Rauw from Amstelveen"Brian Jones had the first album" says Keith in the liner notes, talking about his first time hearing the song. But Robert Johnson's original Stop Breaking Down was only released in 1970 on the second album, volume 2. We forgive Keith, of course. The Stones probably recorded SBD originally in 1970 because they heard it first that year.
Demian from Buenos Aires, ArgentinaRobert jhonson be happy from to heaven.
Toe from C Town, OhOut of 1,713 songs on my Ipod, this one has been played the most.
Craig from Melbourne, AustraliaThis is a great rollicking track.
Andrew from New York, United StatesHate to tell you, but ABKCO (that s**mbag thief, Allen Klein, 's record label) had nothing to do with this album. "Exile on Main Street", a reference to the Stones' status as tax exiles from England, was the second LP issued on the Stones' own "Rolling Stones Records" label, and, as stated above, Allen Klein's company had nothing to do with it.
I had not heard the story of the rights issue- do you have a link to the story? I thought the lifetime of a copyright at that time was the artist's lifetime plus 25 years after. Robert Johnson, the brilliant Bluesman, died August 16, 1938, according to his Death Certificate. 1972, when "Exile" was released, was 34 years later. I'd love to see a link to the story. This song is great fun to play- it's in Open-G, like most of Keith's classic parts, capoed at the second fret; however, there's a twist. Keith doesn't tune the low E (6th) string down to D, so you actually have a G6 tuning! Mick Taylor's cool slide part is in "standard Open-G", if there is such a thing, also caped at the second fret....
Ethan from Portland, Ora true classic.
Stefanie from Rock Hill, ScThe original by Robert Johnson is my favorite but both versions are good and different from each other.
Johnny from Los Angeles, CaThis is a pretty good blues Stones cover, it deserves more comments.
