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 bread in Dallas and get hot again in half the time

Baby

Parachute woman, will you blow me out?
Parachute woman, will you blow me out?
Well my heavy throbber's itching just to lay a solid rhythm down

Parachute Woman
is a cassette track (i.e. recorded on a cassette).
- Keith Richards, 1971


Parachute Woman
... came so easily. I thought it was going to be difficult because I had that concept of that sound and wasn't sure it would work, but Mick jumped on the idea just like that, and it took little time to record.
- Keith Richards, Life (2010)
