Sympathy For the Devil Lyrics

As I became more awake, these lyrics took on a more significant meaning for me for sure......

"Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and faith Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change Killed the czar and his ministers Anastasia screamed in vain I rode a tank
Held a general's rank When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank Pleased to meet you
I watched with glee While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades For the gods they made
I shouted out,"Who killed the Kennedys?"
When after all It was you and me Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay Just as every cop is a criminal And all the sinners saints As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer Cause I'm in need of some restraint"

Stones Fan

I can remember loving the Stones very early on, kids with Def Leopard Shirts and Iron Maiden Shirts (Piece of Mind) etc..... would laugh about my affinity for the Stones, (albeit that was 4th or 5th grade) and here I am still a fan, and hear they are still rock'n. Love the Human Riff....!

They are great. Makes me not feel so old and not worried about getting older!

Thanks Ralph

Good stuff. Love the Stones. And you're right, they sound like the stones again.

Probably my favorite album is the 1969 Let it Bleed. I remember listening to that on my record player. It says on that album, "This record should be played loud." And it should.

The first track is Gimme Shelter, which is awesome:

That whole record is filled with great songs, and ends with the epic

You Can't Always Get What You Want

Thanks man!

The greatest rock n roll band in the world

Always were, always will be... as Keith says, "It's in the bones!". Despite their age, they can still pull it off, and makes me feel better about hitting the big 6-0 next month!

This song is another great example of the Stones drive, Ronnie and Keith seamlessly interweaving those guitar licks, while Charlie keeps it all in place. But like most of the Stones later material (2000 and on) it's missing a signature hook that makes their classics so endearing and instantly recognizable.

I have two favorite albums: Exile on Main St. and Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out (the live version of Midnight Rambler is a testosterone loaded rocker). The band was at its best in the late 60s and early 70s with Mick Taylor playing guitar opposite Keith. Taylor's lead guitar solo at the end of "Sway' (from Sticky Fingers) still sends chills up my spine.

While everyone was fawning over the Beatles, the rebel in me latched on to Britain's bad boys, the Stones. After 50 years, they still bring out that little bit of rebel left in me, despite 'what a drag it is getting old'.

My parents said they were the only band to make me stop crying

They played the stones to get me to get quiet. When I was 4 I went as Keith Richards for Halloween. I will try and find the pic. He is still one of my heroes.

Agreed Ralph. Tasty stuff.
