"One Hit (To the Body)" as written by and Keith Richards Ron Wood....
You fell out of the clear blue sky
To the darkness below
The smell of your flesh excites me
My blood starts to flow
So help me God

You burst in in a blaze of light
You unzippered the dark
One kiss took my breath away
One look lights up the stars

And it's it's one hit to the body
It comes straight from the heart
One hit to the body
Sure went straight to the mark
So help me God

It's one shot when you love me
One shot when you leave me
I don't need no security
I just need some peace

And it's one hit to the body
It comes straight from the heart
One voice calls out my name
It sure went straight to the mark

One punch and you knocked me down
Tore my defenses apart
One round took me out of the game
You did me some permanent harm

It took just one hit
It took just one hit
It ain't enough for me
It ain't enough for me
It ain't enough for me
It's hurting me baby

Oh your love is a sweet addiction
I can't clean you out of my veins
It's a life long addiction
That has damaged my brain

It took just one hit to the body
To tear my defenses apart
One hit to the body
Sure went straight to the mark

One hit to the body
And it comes straight from the heart
One hit to the body
To the body, to the body
Come straight from the heart

One hit to the body
And it comes straight from the heart

One hit to the body
And it comes straight from the heart
That's all it took, that's all it took
So help me so help me so help me God
So help me so help me so help me God

One hit to the body
And it comes straight from the heart
One hit to the body
And it comes straight from the heart

    General CommentThis is an excellent song. Though it's from the Stones' most tumultuous time as a band, its definately one of their more under-rated tracks from the post-Atco era. The song features Jimmy Page on lead guitar and the acoustic parts were written, played, and suggested by Ron Wood, which is why he gets a writing credit.

    General CommentI agree this is a great song (five years later).
    I think it may be about heroin though. :)
