The movie “Ned Kelly” was being filmed on July 8, 1969 when
singer/actress Marianne Faithfull, then the girlfriend of Mick Jagger, attempted suicide with barbiturates while on the set of the film. The film also starred Jagger.

She eventually recoverd, and when awaking from her coma, tells friends that “wild horses couldn’t drag me away.” The Rolling Stones song “Wild Horses” is built around that phrase.

That is one version of how the song came about. Have you heard a different story?

Here are the lyrics written by The Rolling Stones.

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I can’t let you slide through my hands
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don’t have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let’s do some living after we die
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
