Rolling Stones “Wild Horses” Acoustic Live in Studio 1995




The video was shot live (in appropriately moody black and white) at Toshiba/EMI Studios in Tokyo back in 1995.


“Wild Horses” originally appeared on the Stones’ 1971 album Sticky Fingers, and was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.


This version appears on the album Stripped, which is a collection of live recordings from smaller venues and studio recordings.


Mick Taylor is said to have used the Nashville tuning on the original recording, where the E, A, D and G strings are tuned one octave higher than standard tuning.




Lyrics


Childhood living is easy to do

The things you wanted I bought them for you

Graceless lady you know who I am

You know I can't let you slide through my hands


Wild horses couldn't drag me away

Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away


I watched you suffer a dull aching pain

Now you decided to show me the same

No sweeping exits or offstage lines

Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind


Wild horses couldn't drag me away

Wild, wild horses, couldn't drag me away


I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie

I have my freedom but I don't have much time

Faith has been broken, tears must be cried

Let's do some living after we die


Wild horses couldn't drag me away

Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day


Wild horses couldn't drag me away

Wild, wild horses, we'll ride them some day
