*Data taken from Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012

From the The Rolling Stones – All the Songs book:
This is a typical Rolling Stones blues that builds on the typical Rolling Stones riff of “Silver Train.” Mick Jagger composed it on the piano, in all likelihood sometime before the recording of Goats Head Soup. In The Rolling Stones Complete Recording Sessions 1962–2012, Martin Elliott suggests that he wrote it in the summer of 1970. What does seem certain is that Andy Johns particularly liked this invigorating piano blues, and encouraged Mick Jagger to finish it and then record it, most probably during the session at Island Studios on May 28, 1973. The story possesses the caustic humor that is so characteristic of both the blues and the Stones. A woman is reluctant to show her boyfriend her love (and even goes so far as to hide it) because he has an unfortunate tendency to drink and is incapable of controlling his recurrent melancholy.
