"Saint of Me" is a single by The Rolling Stones from their 1997 album Bridges to Babylon. Mick Jagger sings about various people in history who had converted to Christianity, notably St. Paul and St. Augustine. Jagger then states that they will never make a saint out of him.

Recording

The song is notable for its performers. With Jagger on vocals, acoustic guitar and keyboards, Waddy Wachtel and Ron Wood play electric guitars (Keith Richards is notably absent), Me'Shell Ndegéocello and Pierre de Beauport on bass and six-string bass, respectively, and Stones-recording veteran Billy Preston on organ.

Release

"Saint of Me" reached #26 in the UK and #94 in the US. The track also reached #13 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks.

A recording from the Bridges to Babylon Tour can be found on the 1999 live album No Security.

The B-side, "Anyway You Look at It", is a ballad and appears on the Rarities 1971–2003 compilation, released in 2005.
