Down Home Girl – The Rainbow Girls

I heard this, did some research and found the original by Alvin Robinson (fantastic voice, arranged by Joe Jones), another by the Coasters (Lieber-Stoller production), then the Stones version. The song was written by Jerry Lieber and Artie Butler. I always loved the song, but could never quite figure out the lyrics, but in one search, someone said “…it was filled with the coded language of New Orleans…”

I set it up to play in this order: Alvin/Coasters/Stones/Rainbow Girls (who sing 3-part harmony).
