The Rolling Stones & Mick Taylor - Can't You Hear Me Knocking - Glastonbury 2013




Mick Taylor plays Can't You Hear Me Knocking with The Rolling Stones at the Glastonbury Festival 2013, June 29, and delivers an impressive solo.


"Can't You Hear Me Knocking" is a song by English rock band the Rolling Stones from their 1971 album Sticky Fingers. The song is over seven minutes long, and begins with a Keith Richards open-G tuned guitar intro. At two minutes and forty-three seconds, an instrumental break begins, with Rocky Dijon on congas; tenor saxophonist Bobby Keys performs an extended saxophone solo over the guitar work of Richards and Mick Taylor, punctuated by the organ work of Billy Preston. At 4:40 Taylor takes over from Richards and carries the song to its finish with a lengthy guitar solo.





Lyrics


Yeah, you got satin shoes

Yeah, you got plastic boots

Y'all got cocaine eyes

Yeah, you got speed-freak jive

Can't you hear me knockin' on your window

Can't you hear me knockin' on your door

Can't you hear me knockin' down your dirty street, yeah

Help me baby, I ain't no stranger

Help me baby, I ain't no stranger

Help me baby, I ain't no stranger

Can't you hear me knockin', ahh, are you safe asleep?

Can't you hear me knockin', yeah, down the gas light street, now

Can't you hear me knockin', yeah, throw me down the keys

Alright now

Hear me ringing big bell tolls

Hear me singing soft and low

I've been begging on my knees

I've been kickin', help me please

Hear me prowlin'

I'm gonna take you down

Hear me growlin'

Yeah, I've got flatted feet now, now, now, now

Hear me howlin'

And all, all around your street now

Hear me knockin'

And all, all around your town
