LYRICS

The Rolling Stones “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” Lyrics

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she would meet her connection
At her feet was a footloose man
No, you can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometime
You’ll find
You get what you need

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was a footloose man

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes
Well, you just might find
You get what you need

And I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse
Singing, “We’re going to vent our frustration
If we don’t, we’re going to blow a 50-amp fuse”

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes
Well, you just might find
You get what you need

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, cherry red
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was “dead”
I said to him

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes
Well, you just might find
You get what you need

You get what you need, yeah, oh baby
I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practiced at the art of deception
Well I could tell by her blood-stained hands

You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
You can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometimes, you just might find
You just might find you get what you need

When you attend a Widespread Panic concert, you never know what surprises the band will have in store. On April 23 in Alabama, during the band’s 2016 Spring tour, they were joined by members of the Tedeschi Trucks Band for an exciting encore of The Rolling Stones’ 1969 song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” Watch it above, courtesy of Widespread Panic’s YouTube.

JB’s vocals work well with Susan Tedeschi’s and Derek Trucks’ slide guitar playing is another highlight of the performance. Not to be outdone, Jimmy Herring’s guitar lead toward the end of the song pushes the energy to the next level. JoJo’s keyboard playing keeps things light and about halfway through there is a bit of a Lou Reed “Walk On The Wild Side” bass tease from Dave Schools.

You can buy the official soundboard recording of this concert at LiveWidespreadPanic.com, where the band sells high quality concert recordings.
