Rolling Stones songs: It’s Not Easy
*Click for 

Sit here thinking with your head of fire/ Go think the same thing and never tire…

Written by: Jagger/Richard
Recorded: RCA Studios, Hollywood, USA, March 6-9 1966
*Data taken from Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012

From the The Rolling Stones – All the Songs book:
After pointing his finger at all the defects he can find in the female sex,
might Mick Jagger now be showing signs of making amends? This is
certainly suggested by the narrator’s admission that It’s not easy living on
your own
and that It seems a big failing in a man/To take his girl for
granted if he can
. However, no sooner has he recognized the error of his
ways than he pleads extenuating circumstances: Got me running like a cat
in a thunderstorm
, he sings, before lifting the curtain a little on this
girlfriend when he fantasizes about the glow of her long clean hair/As she
goes to sit on her own high chair
. Might this mysterious creature be a
“honky-tonk woman”?
