Yeah, I'm a dealing man
Still dealing yet
I'm going to keep on dealing till I
Find myself a bet

And I've got to stop dealing
I believe I ride 'em on down
Well I done stop dealing
I believe I ride 'em on down

Yeah, raised in the country
Got a place in town
Got 2 kids and
All of them are mine

And I've got to stop dealing
I believe I ride 'em on down
Yeah I got to stop dealing
I believe I ride 'em on down


Yeah, I'm dealing, darling
Bottom of the deck
Seems like somebody going to
Take my shit

But I've got to stop dealing
I believe I ride 'em on down
Well I've got to stop my dealing
I believe I ride 'em on down

Yeah

Yeah, gone yesterday and
Not a day before
If you come knocking
Out my door

Well I've got to stop dealing
I believe I ride 'em on down
Well I've got to stop dealing
I believe I ride 'em on down

Yeah

Yeah I must stop dealing
I believe I ride 'em on down

Some of the titles were new to me, like Ride 'Em on Down.

- Ron Wood, October 2016

I came up with Ride 'Em on Down, I think.

- Keith Richards, November 2016

Eddie Taylor - a great guitar player and a lovely voice. He isn't a name that would jump out at you unless you were really into the blues, but he was very well known in blues circles. And, like most of that Chicago blues stuff, there's lovely interplay with the guitars.
- Keith Richards, November 2016
