UPI:

A Rolling Stones song recorded in 1972 and forgotten for decades was released Saturday in a limited edition for Record Store Day in Britain.The day, which began in 2008 in the United States, celebrates independent record stores.

The Stones recorded “Plundered My Soul” for “Exile on Main Street,” the BBC reports. The song did not make the double album but was rediscovered recently when the group prepared for a reissue of “Exile.”…

Lyrics after the break:

PLUNDERED MY SOUL

Can you believe it? I’ve won more medals in this love game.
Ive been resting on my laurels. Im a bad loser. Im a yard off my pace.
Mmmm I smell rubber and I soon discovered that youre gone for good.
My indiscretions made a bad impression. Guess I was misunderstood.

I thought you needed my loving, but it’s my heart that you stole.
I thought you wanted my money, but you plundered my soul.
(Plundered my soul)

I started asking around but your friend’s pretty lips were sealed.
I wrote a letter full of twaddle and tripe confessions about wounds that heal.
I heard some gossip, you’ve become an alcoholic, youre dryin out.
So I phoned every clinic in the yellow pages, not a trace I found.

I thought you needed my loving, but it’s my heart that you stole.
I thought you wanted my money, but you plundered my soul.
(You plundered my soul)

I hate quittin but Im close to admittin Im a sorry case.
But on quiet reflection, my sad rejections not a total disgrace.
But I do miss your quick repartee and the smile that lights up your face.
You’ll be a hard act to follow. A bitter pill to swallow.
You’ll be tough, oh youre tough to replace.

I thought you wanted my loving, but it’s my heart that you stole.
You were the trick up my sleeve. My ace in the hole.
I thought you wanted my money, but you plundered my soul.
Oh plundered my soul.
Oh yeah!
(You plundered my soul)
You plundered my soul.
Yeah! Yeah!
(You plundered my soul)
