The stones stole their music from ALL genres! Just like the rest of those British Invasion bastards, lol.

Damn Johnny come latelies, don't they know we ripped off the black guys first?!

You know, I was sitting there,
In my silk-upholstered chair,
talkin' to some rich folks that I know ...
and I realized -- great tune, but kinda crappy southern drawl on Mick's part

Country Honk is about as country as they get. And was written in Peru! Dead Flowers was written aboutNew York socialite Pana Graves (I may have spelled this wrong)who cultivated cOunterculture figures like the Stones, Burroughs etc during the '60s.

Dead Flowers was written by Townes Van Zandt.

Edit KLK is right Stones original.

The Stones Was/is a stright up country band. Leaving aside the question of whether Mick can pull off an authentic southern drawl or not, he's trying to.

Just figured out Dead Flowers and White Freight Liner on the uke. Both excellent tunes that are fun to jam and sing to; expect 'em at facelift.

We'll it's bad news from Houston, half of my friends are dyin'.
White freight liner won't you steal away my mind.

So I'll be in my room with a needle and a spoon, and another girl to take my pain away.

It's all country regardless of who's playin' the chops even when it's heroin country.

Flying Burritos were the first to record their song Wild Horses. If you watch 'Fallen Angel" you'll see that Gram Parsons and Keith Richards hung out a bunch- probably where they got a bunch of their 'country' ideas. BTW, I hate Mick Jagger's southern accent. And- 'coulored radio' ??? What, are you from the 50's?

Now, remember this is the team the brought us the calculatedly abrasive, 'Some Girls,' 'Under my Thumb,'' 'brown Sugar,' etc. I think the things you bring up are absolutely intentional. And, a playfully snide backhand at US culture. ;)
