Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy - Mustang Sally

Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy - Mustang Sally




"Mustang Sally" is a rhythm and blues (R&B) song written and first recorded by Mack Rice in 1965. It was released on the Blue Rock label (4014) in May 1965 with "Sir Mack Rice" as the artist. The song uses an AAB layout with a 24-bar structure.


It gained greater popularity when Wilson Pickett covered it the following year on a single, a version that was also released on the 1966 album, The Wicked Pickett. Also in 1966, John Lee Hooker recorded an entirely different song with a similar title — "Mustang Sally & GTO".





Lyrics


Mustang Sally, guess you better slow your mustang down

Mustang Sally , baby, I guess you better slow your mustang down

You been a runnin' all over town, I guess I'll better put your big feet on the ground, oh yes, I will


All you want to do is ride around, Sally (ride Sally ride)

All you want to do is ride around, Sally (ride Sally ride)

All you want to do is ride around, Sally (ride Sally ride)

All you want to do is ride around, Sally (ride Sally ride)


One of these early mornings,

you gonna be wipin' your weepin' eyes, yes you will

I bought you a vintage mustang,

of nineteen sixty-five

Now you comin' right signifyin' woman, no,

you don't want to let me ride


Mustang Sally, baby, yeah,

I guess you better slow your mustang down, yes you will darling, I hope you will

Going around running' all over town,

I'm gonna put your big fat feet on the ground, oh yes Sally, well, look at here


All you want to do is ride around, Sally (ride Sally ride)

All you want to do is just ride around, Sally (ride Sally ride)

All you want to do is just ride around, Sally (ride Sally ride)

All you want to do is ride around, Sally (ride Sally ride)

One of these early mornings

You gonna put your bad bad feet on the ground, oh yes I will, Sally


Sally (ride Sally ride)

Sally (ride Sally ride)

(ride Sally ride)

(ride Sally ride)

(ride Sally ride)

(ride Sally ride)
