Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down
Sometimes I'm falling on the ground

How do you hide?
How do you hide your love?

Now look here, baby, you sure look sweet

In the sleep time, out on the street

Why do you hide?

Why do you hide your love?
Why do you hide, baby, why do you hide your love?
 

All right, boy
Yeah

Oh been a sick man, I want to cry

Lord I'm a drunk man but now I'm dry

How do you hide?
How do you hide your love?

Now look here, baby, you sure look cheap
I make it mama 7 days a week

Why do you hide?
Why do you hide your love?
Why do you hide it, baby, hide from the man that you love?

Come on, man
 

Oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah


How do you hide?
How do you hide your love?
 
All right

Come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on
 
Oh baby, I'm reaching, reaching high
Oh yeah, I'm falling out of the sky

Why do you hide?
Hide from the man that you love?
Why do you hide, baby, why do you hide your love?

Oh yeah, oh yeah
Ah yeah, ow yeah


Why do you hide?
Why do you hide your love?
Why do you hide it, baby, hide from the man that you love?
That you love...
 
Well, well, well, well
 
 

TrackTalk

(Mick Jagger) was banging away at the piano and it sounded real cool. Fuck, I'm going to tape this, because we could turn this into something later, you know? I said Come on, man, let's do a whole pass on that, because you can use this. This is a really good vibe.

- Andy Johns


I like the blues tune (on that album), Hide Your Love...

- Mick Taylor, 1979
