A great tune from what I consider to be the Rolling Stone's best album, "Exile On Main Street".

Story behind the song
Yes, I'm aware that Mick Taylor played lead guitar using a slide on the original, but I went with a more "traditional" lead guitar approach instead, while attempting to stay true to his riffs. Unless you're in a tribute band, the way I look at it is this: If you don't put your own stamp on cover songs, what's the point? If your aim is to try and mimic the original exactly, you may as well listen to that and not go through the trouble of recording your own version. Arrangements, all instruments and vocals by Craig Guerrieri. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Craig Guerrieri at Cygnus Studios, Florida, USA. 2019.
Lyrics
Yeah, heard the diesel drumming, all down the line Oh, heard the wires a humming, all down the line Yeah, hear the women sighing, all down the line Oh, hear the children crying, all down the line All down the line We'll be watching out for trouble, yeah All down the line And we'll keep the motor running, yeah All down the line Well, you can't say yes and you can't say no Just be right there when the whistle blows Need a sanctified girl with a sanctified mind to help me now Yeah, all the people singing, all down the line Mmm, watch the men all working, working yeah, all down the line All down the line And we'll open up the throttle yeah All down the line And we'll bust another bottle, yeah All down the line I need a shot of salvation baby, once in a while Hear the whistle blowing, hear it for a thousand miles All down the line And we'll open up the throttle yeah, yeah! All down the line And we'll bust, bust, bust another bottle, yeah! Well you can't say yes, and you can't say no Just be right there when the whistle blows I need a sanctified mind to help me out right now Won't you be my little baby for a while...
