The Rolling Stones - Jumpin' Jack Flash (Live)




Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, recording on "Jumpin' Jack Flash" began during the Beggars Banquet sessions of 1968 and released as a single in the same year.


According to the book Keith Richards: The Biography by Victor Bockris, the line "I was born in a crossfire hurricane", was written by Richards, and refers to his being born amid the bombing and air raid sirens of Dartford, England, in 1943 during World War II.




Lyrics


I was born in a cross-fire hurricane

And I howled at the morning driving rain

But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas

But it's all right. I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash

It's a gas, gas, gas


I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag,

I was schooled with a strap right across my back

But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas

But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash

It's a gas, gas, gas


I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead

I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled , yeah yeah

I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread

Yeah, yeah, yeah


I was crowned with a spike right through my head

But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas

But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash

It's a gas, gas, gas


Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas

Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas

Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas

Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas

Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas

Jumping Jack Flash, its a gas



Songwriters: Keith Richards / Mick Jagger
