The Inappropriate Lyrics:
What's your name little girl, what's your name?
Shouldn't you stay, little girl
Well there ain't no shame.
**** And the gentlman belts out in post coitus class: ****
Can I get you a taxi home? It sure was grand.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Perhaps 'little girl' is a relative descriptive term with the Rolling Stones now in their 60s but it sure sounds like the singer here should be wearing a GPS ankle bracelet and on a certain registry list. Ah but that's Rock&Roll, just ask Jerry Lee Lewis.

My early radio station, Rock Channel, played a full 10 minutes version of the song and I like that version because in this version not feature fade out ending. This is the longest pop ballad/slow rock songs ever in the world! Also, the longest coda ever after "Layla" by Derek and the Dominos and "Hey Jude" by The Beatles.

Hidden Messages:

WRITTEN AROUND THE MIDDLE OF THE ALBUM, JUST BEFORE THE LABEL, THERE IS AN INSCRIBED MESSAGE ON BOTH SIDES - SIDE ONE - Brian "please call home, Linda and I are sick with worry" - Al. SIDE TWO - Brian - "Disregard last message" - Al - I'm not sure of the story behind this, or even who Brian is!!
Submitted by: B-3
"Sweet Home Alabama"
At the start of the second verse, just after Ronnie Van Zant sings "Well I heard Mr. Young sing about it", turn up the volume - and you know what I mean, VERY loud - to hear another band member singing the phrase "Southern Man". Then, for the rest of the gap and after the next line, you'll hear the same member singing more of the Neil Young song of the same name. They originally recorded the part from "Southern Man" to refer to Neil Young, but they later decided to leave it out so as not to annoy him. It was, in the end, left very deep in the mix.
