I'm a hunter , searching for love, on these lonely streets again, searching for the things that I may never find again - from the backstreets comes a rambling, smell of anarchy, God knows when I'm coming home, heaven helps those who help themselves , God knows I will not wait till tomorrow - hold on tight till the end ... Underneath my feet the grass is growing ... Lights out

My history teacher played this song in class. We were learning about the horrors of the Vietnam War, which is what this song reflects on.

This song is considered, by many, as the Stones' greatest. Damn good song, but I'll take Sympathy For The Devil.

RANDOM : People tend to hype climate change, it's a good conversation piece, in fact, I noticed no-one really makes campfires as they used to, everyone seeks indoor comfort, fire is a natural element needed to keep our world in simple balance, fire causes wind, rain , and car emissions are new , if you think about it, so, with that said, make a friendly camp fire and support electric vehicles and alternative energies

Would you rather be on the bottom in a world of winners, or a winner in a world of losers ? I'd take the world of winners, one can always work their way to top :)

This song exemplifies the cool sound that the Stones created back then.

I still need to find a Steel Wheels tour T-shirt. I have Voodoo Lounge, and Bridges To Babylon. All 3 shows were GREAT. Ahh, to be back in San Diego, now that winter's here.

This is a great song, but why does Scorsese have to use it in all his films?
