"You Got The Silver" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
Hey babe, what's in your eyes?
I saw them flashing like airplane lights
You fill my cup, babe, that's for sure
I must come back
For a little more

You got my heart, you got my soul
You got the silver you got the gold
You got the diamonds, from the mine
Well that's all right
It'll buy some time

Tell me, honey, what will I do
When I'm hungry and thirsty too
Feeling foolish and that's for sure
Just waiting here
At your kitchen door?

Hey baby, what's in your eyes?
Is that the diamonds from the mine?
What's that laughing in your smile?
I don't care,
No, I don't care

Oh babe, you got my soul
You got the silver you got the gold
If that's your love, it just made me blind
I don't care
No, that's no big surprise

    General Commentit's "What's that FLASHING in your smile?", not laughing.

    If there is no hidden meaning, than it is what it is: a Stone meeting a girl and falling in love with her.

    I love Keith's singing in this, it is nice and melodic when he sings and powerful and emotional when he shouts at the end. A country ballad gone rock. Beautiful song.

    General CommentFantastic song, but I believe this is sung by Mick Jagger and not Keith Richards. Actually, I am certain it is Mick, I've been listening to the Stones before I was a born and I know Mick when I hear him ; ) Unless their is a different version of this song. I have the strict acoustic one. Still studio though.

    General CommentRiverside- You must have a different version of this song, as it is MOST definetely Keith on the album version (Let it Bleed). This song was written for Anita Pallenberg. She worked on the film Performance with Mick and they had an affair during this time. Keith was concerned she would leave him, and he wrote this song for her. That is the primary reason Keith wanted to sing it. Somehow he was able to get over the affair, but he wasn't going to let Mick sing the song.

    General CommentYes, this is all Keith.

    I've heard there is in fact a version with Mick doing the vocal....but it is VERY tough to come by.


    Lyrics?
    At this stage in the career you have to assume anything Keith wrote had thoughts of Heroin laced within and without it.


    Certainly could be Keith talking to his dealer......but let's just hope it was keith talking to his love as earlier noted.
