Greg, tell me more about the roots of "The Last Time." I suppose there are a number of song from the Rolling Stones that have traditional roots. Same with stuff by Led Zeppelin.

Here are the lyrics from "Last Time," copied from Lyrics World:

The Last Time
The Rolling Stones
Mick Jagger and Keith Richard


I've told you once and l've told you twice
You'd better listen to my advice
You don't try very hard to please me
With what you know it should be easy

Well this could be the last time
This could be the last time
May be the last time
I don't know

I'm sorry girl but I can't stay
Feeling like I do to-day
Staying here is too much sorrow
Guess I'll feel the same tomorrow

Well this could be the last time
This could be the last time
May be the last time
I don't know
Oh no

Well this could be the last time
This could be the last time
May be the last time
I don't know
Oh no

I've told you once and I've told you twice
Someone'll have to pay the price
Here's the chance to change your mind
I'll be gone a long long time

Well this could be the last time
This could be the last time
May be the last time
I don't know
Oh no
