Like «When The Levee Breaks» this is a much changed cover of an old Robert Johnson song originally recorded in 1937. The song «Don’t Know Where I’m Going» by Norm Gallagher also features the section about the `rider’, although it is obvious that Gallagher also borrowed this section from Johnson. Moving from the lyrics to the music, there are some lifts from Johnny Winter’s «Leavin’ Home Blues» and another Johnny Winters song, «I’m Yours She’s Mine». This song was performed rather unsteadily by the Rolling Stones at their free Hyde Park Concert in 1969, and although credited to Jagger and Richards, is usually credited to Johnny Winter.
