The Best Rolling Stones’ Song? Midnight Mile

This gets me every time.

When the wind blows and the rain feels cold
With a head full of snow
With a head full of snow

In the window there’s a face you know
Don’t the nights pass slow
Don’t the nights pass slow

The sound of strangers sending nothing to my mind
Just another mad, mad day on the road
I am just living to be lying by your side
But I’m just about a moonlight mile on down the road

Made a rag pile of my shiny clothes
Gonna warm my bones
Gonna warm my bones

I got silence on my radio
Let the air waves flow
Let the air waves flow

Oh, I’m sleeping under strange, strange skies
Just another mad, mad day on the road
My dreams is fading down the railway line

I’m just about a moonlight mile down the road, yeah, yeah
I’m hiding, sister and I’m dreaming
I’m riding down your moonlight mile
I’m hiding, baby and I’m dreaming
I’m riding down your moonlight mile
I’m riding down your moonlight mile

Let it go now, come on up, babe
Yeah, let it go now
Yeah, flow now baby
Yeah, move on now, yeah
Yeah, I’m coming home

‘Cause I’m just about a moonlight mile on down the road
Down the road, down the road, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby
