You Gotta Move
The Rolling Stones Lyrics


You gotta move
You gotta move
You gotta move, child
You gotta move
Oh, when the Lord get ready
You gotta move

You may be high
You may be low
You may be rich, child
You may be poor
But when the Lord get ready
You gotta move

You see that woman
Who walks the street
You see that police
Upon his beat
But then the Lord get ready
You gotta move

You gotta move

"You Gotta Move"

You gotta move
You gotta move
You gotta move, child
You gotta move
Oh, when the Lord gets ready
You gotta move
You may be high
You may be low
You may be rich, child
You may be poor
But when the Lord gets ready
You gotta move
You see that woman
Who walks the street
You see that police
Upon his beat
But then the Lord gets ready
You gotta move
You gotta move

am crazy!! you sure are a crazy christian...🙄🍋😊 sour puss
Law and not lord. Oh! when the law gets ready you gotta move. it's not a sermon or a chapel tune.
The woman's not walking to church. She's trying' to sell something and the rich and poor are her
customers. I don't hear no swing low hallelujah tamborine temperance band
coming from the Rolling stones or from Mississippi Fred
there's no way to put a christian spin on this tunes lyric as its street real as it has always been
mr Mcdowell had his eyes wide open when he wrote this song
he might or might not have been a very good christian
so wasn't going to lie" but tell the truth.the honest truth.
And so should you. And so endeth the lesson😎

You gotta move
You gotta move
You gotta move, child
You gotta move
Oh, when the Lord get ready
You gotta move
You may be high
You may be low
You may be rich, child
You may be poor
But when the Lord get ready
You gotta move
You see that woman
Who walks the street
You see that police
Upon his beat
But then the Lord get ready
You gotta move
You gotta move

I'm here today because of the passing of my high school friend/drinking buddy, always up to something. We were in the class of 1974, and this was our band and our song. We were usually pissy drunk when we sang this together. This song will always make me smile! R.I.P. June

Always a great blues band

The Stones have a long association with the blues, their first album included several covers of blues classics. The Stones did a really good version of Roll and Tumble. Many of the English groups that came to the U.S. during the 60's were into American blues.
