From the The Rolling Stones – All the Songs book:
After funk, soul, and ballad, the Rolling Stones wrap up Black and Blue
with a first-rate rock ’n’ roll number featuring a made-to-measure riff in
order to go out with a bang. Like almost all the songs on the album, this one
saw the light of day in the studio, as Jagger confirms: “We wrote that in the
studio, too. All of it, my words and everything. It just ‘came’ to me.” And
speaking of words, the lyrics of this song tell of a crazy mama wearing a
ball and chain and wielding a sawed-off shotgun. A sort of Ma Barker
revisited by the Stones… “Crazy Mama” is also the B-side of the single
“Fool to Cry.”
