Lyrics for Take A Long Line by The Angels

TAKE A LONG LINE
The Angels (MTA1377 - Key:A - Tempo: - Time:3.03) www.hittrax.com.au



INTRO: --> (16 BARS)


V1 He was sellin' postcards from a paper stand
Whiskey bottle in his withered hand
He put a finger on a photo from an old magazine
And saw himself, in the shadow of his dream

They found him with his head inside a tin-pot crown
Told him his feet stank and took him downtown
Called him agitator, spy and thief
Shut him up in solitary third degree


CHORUS -----
Take a long line, take a long line, take a long line
Reel him in...



V2 He tried to appeal to the king of might
He said "I'm just excercisin' my sacred right"
The king he said "You ain't got no rights
You're a madman, a traitor, get outta my sight"


CHORUS


GUITAR SOLO --> (16 BARS)


V3 They put him aboard a well wound whirlwind
Pulled out his teeth and rolled him to grin
He gave 'em a smile, pulled out a bottle of wine
Said "I never existed, you've been wastin' your time"


CHORUS (X3)


OUTRO -----
