Untitled[edit]

This article is completely different than what I know the song to be about. Someone should try to supply references. This line- "another good-bye to another good friend" refers to the actual substance- heroin- as Richards often speaks of booze, and pills and powders as 'friends'. One of the most refreshing or pathetic things- depending upon your point of view- is Richards and people like Ron Wood often speak about their 'crutchs' as 'friends'. Gram Parsons was dead five years already, and this obesseion to connect everything about Richards to him is way over played. It also was written and recorded in Paris, not Toronto, as far as I have ever read, and it was done when Jagger was away dealing with his divorce. Moreover, to suggest this is Richards' only written song contribution to Some Girls is false. Beast of Burden is most notably a song Richards wrote and brought to the band where Jagger changed lyrics.--Mikerussell 17:21, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

It's said that the story of those lyrics goes both ways. Keith performed the song at Gram tributes a few years back and that where the connection is made. It's said to reference both. But feel free to do what you need. This was largely a Richards composition, whereas "Beast of Burden" was a much more collaborative effort. But yeah feel free to clarify.

actually he didn't perform it at the Gram tribute shows, he just quoted the line - lots of writers had interpreted it as referring to Gram way before that, though. i agree that both interpretations work; multiple layers of meaning is what makes great lyrics great, after all. anyway i've added some references, and removed some bits i couldn't find sources for and/or that i considered too POVish; i hope it makes sense to people now. swing on Sssoul (talk) 22:08, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

It'd be great to see some other cover versions mentioned. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.106.44.241 (talk) 23:27, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
