The Rolling Stones - Jumpin' Jack Flash - Live with Brian Jones



Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, recording on "Jumpin' Jack Flash" began during the Beggars Banquet sessions of 1968.


Released as a single in 1968. Called "supernatural Delta blues by way of Swinging London" by Rolling Stone magazine, the song was perceived by some as the band's return to their blues roots after the baroque pop and psychedelia heard on their preceding albums, Aftermath (1966), Between the Buttons (1967) and especially Their Satanic Majesties Request (1967). One of the group's most popular and recognisable songs, it has featured in films and been covered by numerous performers, notably Thelma Houston, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Peter Frampton, Johnny Winter and Leon Russell. To date, it is the band's most-performed song: the band has played it over 1,100 times in concert.




Lyrics


I was born in a crossfire hurricane

And I howled at my ma in the driving rain


But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas

But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash

It's a gas, gas, gas


I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag

I was schooled with a strap right across my back


But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas

But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash

It's a gas, gas, gas


I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead

I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled, yeah yeah

I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread, yeah yeah yeah

I was crowned with a spike right through my head, fuck my head


But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas

But it's all right, I'm Jumpin' Jack Flash

It's a gas, gas, gas


Jumpin' Jack Flash, it's a gas

Jumpin' Jack Flash, it's a gas

Jumpin' Jack Flash, it's a gas

Jumpin' Jack Flash, it's a gas

Jumpin' Jack Flash, it's a gas

Jumpin' Jack Flash, it's a gas
