The Rolling Stones Performing Wild Horses in an Accoustic Version

This video clip shows the famous rock band Rolling Stones performing one of their most known songs called Wild Horses. This particular version is played on accoustic instruments. The recording sounds great, almost better than the original album cut. The album that contains this song is Brown sugar and was released in the early seventies.
The Rolling Stones were another rock group from England, as the Beatles. But even though both groups appear almost together on the international rock scene, in fact they are very different, not only musically but they represent different kinds of people. The Beatles were much more ‘compatible’ with society and even when they were critical about certain issues, they did it nicely, while the Stones sounded harsher. No wonder that the Beatles were asked to visit the Queen and get hit by her magic sword so much earlier than the Rolling Stones.
This song has some influences from american country and western music and here are the 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 cant let you slide through my hands
Wild horses couldnt drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldnt 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 couldnt drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldnt drag me away

I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I dont have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Lets do some living after we die
Wild horses couldnt drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day

Wild horses couldnt drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day.
