    I'm not a country fan but what i can appreciate i owe to tracks like this. The rhythm is fantastic and universally appealing across genres. It's not complicated yet garth brooks and the eagles combined couldnt win me over in the slightest, but then they didnt have keith now did they. Then the lou reed-ish story of pleading for smack and how he'll do anything and be eternally grateful only for that, to continue his debauchery, slamming and screwing his self made misery away. It's really made perfect with the sardonic, mocking tone about Mick when he sings country making fun of it, the twang and the idea of I'm sure of how ridiculous he must assume he sounds as an englishmen, but at the same time its reverent and you can hear the joke let up here and there replaced with a sincerity that just makes the whole thing so f**** punk rock. I mean, its not like I'm gonna go making my user id's all "deadflowers00" or anything ha! ;)

    Funky_Nickie> I remember listening to this song as a kid and thinking that the "in my room with a needle & a spoon" reference meant he was forced to sew and cook for himself after Suzie dumped him. > Man if that had been a dylan lyric there would be raging discussion forums debating this very point. Nice interpretation kid

    I remember listening to this song as a naive kid and thinking that the "needle & spoon" reference meant he was forced to sew and cook for himself after Suzie dumped him. Ah, to be 12 again...!
