My friend says the trouble is this country’s too goddamn big/ Maybe we should pull it in from the ages a bit…
Written by: Jagger/Richards
Recorded: Pathé Marconi Studios, Boulogne-Billancourt, France, June-Sept. 1979
From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
A piano supplied by Ian Stewart or Mick Jagger is the only instrument on this song. The vocals by Mick revolve around the petrol crisis and the lack of fuel as the petrol manufacturers’ stockpile it. He asks Mr. Prtesident (Jimmy Carter) for help since he does not want to sell his new Cadillac.
