Subject: PRO: a/angels/take_a_long_line

Song: Take A Long Line
By: Angels
Album: Their Finest Hour...and then some
Transcribed by: Russell Edwards roemcs@melb.alexia.net.au

[A]This is it folks, over the top

He was selling post cards from a paper stand
A whiskey bottle in his withered hand
He put his finger on a photo from an old magazine
Saw himself in the shadow of a dream
Running with his head inside a juke-box crown
Told him his feet stank and took him downtown
Called him agitator, spy and thief
Shut him up solitary third degree

Chorus:
[A]Take A [D]long [E]line
[E]Take a [D]long [E]line x 2
[E/D] [E/C#]With [A]him

He tried to appeal to the king of might
He said I'm just exercisin' my sacred right
The king he said you ain't got no rights
You're a mad, bad traitor get outta my sight

Chorus
Bass rises rather than decending at end:
[E/F#] [E/Ab]With [A]him

Break:
[C]x2 [G] [F#] [A][Ab]
[C]x2 [D] [C#] [A][Ab]

Running with his head inside a juke-box crown
Told him his feet stank and took him downtown
Called him agitator, spy and thief
Shut him up solitary third degree

Well they put him up boy, a world-wide whirlwind
Pulled out his teeth and they told him to grin
He gave them a smile, pulled out a bottle of wine
He said I never existed you been wasting your time

Chorus x 2

[A]Take A [D]long [E]line
[E]Take A [D]long [E]line
[E]Take a [D]long, long, long [E]line
With [A]him

The lyrics are not correct. I have put the INCORRECT lyrics in soft brackets - () and my subsequent CORRECTIONS in bracees - {} immediately after. I have owned this album since it was released in the mid 70's, have seen the Angels too many times to count, have met Doc and the Brewster boys on a number of occasions. My corrections are totally acurate :

[A]This is it folks, over the top

He was selling post cards from a paper stand
A whiskey bottle in his withered hand
He put his finger on a photo from an old magazine
Saw himself in the shadow of a dream
(Running){Found him} with his head inside a (juke-box) {tin-pot} crown
Told him his feet stank and took him downtown
Called him agitator, {a} spy (and){, a} thief
Shut him up solitary third degree

Chorus:
[A]Take a [D]long [E]line
[E]Take a [D]long [E]line x 2
[E/D] [E/C#](With [A]him) {Reel him in}

He tried to appeal to the king of might
He said I'm just exercisin' my sacred right
The king he said you ain't got no rights
You're a (mad, bad){madman} traitor get outta my sight

Chorus
Bass rises rather than decending at end:
[E/F#] [E/Ab](With [A]him) {Reel him in}

Break:
[C]x2 [G] [F#] [A][Ab]
[C]x2 [D] [C#] [A][Ab]

(Running){Found him} with his head inside a (juke-box) {tin-pot} crown
Told him his feet stank and took him downtown
Called him agitator, {a} spy (and){, a} thief
Shut him up solitary third degree

Well they put him (up boy, a world-wide) {aboard a well-wound} whirlwind
Pulled out his teeth and they told him to grin
He gave them a smile, pulled out a bottle of wine
He said I never existed you been wasting your time

Chorus x 2

[A]Take a [D]long [E]line
[E]Take a [D]long [E]line
[E]Take a [D]long, long, long [E]line
(With [A]him) {Reel him in}


Thanks guys !

This song was release in Face to Face ... the album you've mentioned was released by Alberts in 1999 so you could not have had the album since '70

But regardless I'm glad you made the corrections I was cringing reading that .. is there no way to correct the lyrics in the original .. not every one will look in the comments section
