"Till the Next Goodbye" is a song by rock and roll band the Rolling Stones featured on their 1974 album "It's Only Rock 'n Roll".

Credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and uncredited to Mick Taylor, 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 performance 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. [ [http://timeisonourside.com/SOTillThe.html "Till the Next Goodbye"] . "timeisonourside.org". 2007 (accessed June 27, 2007).]

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.
