About Till the Next Goodbye

"Till the Next Goodbye" is a song by The Rolling Stones, featured on its 1974 album It's Only Rock 'n Roll. Credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards recording on "Till the Next Goodbye" began at Munich's Musicland Studios in November 1973. The song is a traditional ballad from the Stones' middle period, with slight country music influences. It opens with an acoustic guitar which leads into Jagger's performance. The lyrics deal with the "illicit meetings between two lovers"; The song's chorus is notable as the title is elongated into the phrase "Till the next time we say goodbye. " In his review of the song, Bill Janovitz says, "In the mid-'70s, a 42nd Street movie theater would have been a place of questionable repute and not a very romantic rendezvous. The lyric is unexpectedly complex; the point of view, Jagger as narrator, speaks to the mistress apologetically and with a guilty conscience... In one line on the bridge, Jagger manages to convey empathy, culpability, and frustration: 'I can't go on like this/Can you? Can you?' On paper it seems clear, the narrator is asking out of the relationship (paraphrasing): 'I can't do this, can you?' But the way Jagger sings it, it sounds like he's asking, 'You can't do this anymore, can you?' He's conveying a different meaning altogether, almost as if he is playing both parts in one line."Recording continued at Jagger's home in Newbury with the use of the Rolling Stones Mobile Studio and finished at Island Recording Studios in London. Jagger, Richards and Mick Taylor each perform acoustic guitar for the piece. Taylor also contributes electric slide guitar to the recording. Nicky Hopkins performs the song's piano. Bill Wyman performs bass while Charlie Watts performs drums. An overlooked song from the Stones canon of work, "Till the Next Goodbye" has never been performed live by the Stones and is not included on any compilation albums.

Honey, is there any place that you would like to eat? 
I know a coffee shop down on Fifty-Second Street 
And I don't need no fancy food and I don't need no fancy wine 
And I sure don't need the tears you cry 
Till the next time we say goodbye 
Till the next time we say goodbye 
Till the next time we say goodbye 
I'll be thinking of you 
I'll be thinking of you 

Yeah, a movie house on Forty-Second Street 
Ain't a very likely place for you and I to meet 
Watching the snow swirl around your hair and around your feet 
And I'm thinking to myself she surely looks a treat 
Till the next time we say goodbye 
Till the next time we say goodbye 
Till the next time that we kiss goodnight 
I'll be thinking of you 
I'll be thinking of you 

I can't go on like this, can ya? Can ya? 
I can't go on like this, can ya? 

You give me a cure all from New Orleans 
Now that's a recipe I sure do need 
Some cider vinegar and some elderberry wine 
May cure all your ills, but it can't cure mine 
Your Lou'siana recipes have let me down 
Your Lou'siana recipes have surely let me down 
Till the next time we say goodbye 
Drink to it 
Till the next time we say goodbye 
Till the next time that we kiss goodnight 
Till the next time we say goodbye 
Till the next time we say goodbye 
Till the next time that we kiss goodnight 
I'll be thinking of you 
I'll be thinking of you
