Blood Red Wine is a slow track with strumming acoustic guitar and a smooth piano providing the back-drop for Mick Jagger’s mournful vocals. The lyrics offer contrasting imagery ‘I got red blood, and I got blood red wine which I bring you, when the snow lies heavy on the ground. If you get cold I wrap my coat around…don’t you stay on that snowy ground’
