“Before They Make Me Run” – The Rolling Stones


A rare Keith Richards vocal … this was written by Richards when he was facing possible jail time in Canada for heroin possession, circa 1978. From the “Some Girls” album, arguably the last truly great Stones album.

Key lyrics: “Watched the taillights fading, there ain’t a dry eye in the house … They’re laughing and singing … Started dancing and drinking as I left town … Gonna find my way to heaven, `cause I did my time in hell … I wasn’t looking too good but I was feeling real well.”
