A great (but cheesy) pop song from the 70s. 

Capo 4th fret. All chords relative to that. 

Intro
=====

Am 
F
C
G


Verse
=====

Am                F
Red Light, Spells danger,
      C              G
Can't hold out, much longer
       Am              F
'Cause red light means warning,
      C             G
Can't hold out, I'm burning (No, no, no...)


Am
  You took my heart and turned me on
F
  And now the danger sign is on
C
  I never thought the day would come
G
  When I would feel alone without you

Am
  And now I'm like a child again,
F
  Calling out his mama's name,
C
  You got me on a ball and chain,
G
  Doin' things that I don't want to.


Chorus
======

F
Can't stop running to ya,
G
Feel the love coming through ya,
F
Girl with you beside me,
G
Hold on, heaven guide me...

C                                    F
Red light (til the red light) Spells danger (oh a danger warning)
      C                              G
Can't hold out (can't hold out) much longer (no no baby)
       C                                    F
'Cause red light (feel the red light) means warning (oh it's a danger warning),
      C                        G
Can't hold out (no no now) I'm burning (woah-oh oh oh)


Break

Am
F
C
G

Verse
=====

Am                F
Red Light, Spells danger,
      C              G
Can't hold out, much longer
       Am              F
'Cause red light means warning,
      C             G
Can't hold out, I'm burning


Am
  I had my fun and played around,
F
  without a love to tie me down,
C
  I always used to kiss and run,
G
  I never wanted love to catch me.

Am
  I thought I had a heart of stone,
F
  But now I'm in the danger zone,
C
  I can feel the heat is on,
G
  Soon the flames are gonna catch me.

Chorus

Can't hold out (can't hold out) much longer (no no nooooo)
       C                                    F
'Cause red light (feel the red light) means warning (oh it's a danger warning),
      C                            G
Can't hold out (cant hold out) I'm burning (No no nooooo)

C                                        F
Red light (it's a red light baby) Spells danger (oh that's a danger warning)
      C                              G
Can't hold out (can't hold out) much longer (ohhh you gotta help me baby)
       C                                    F
'Cause red light (feel the red light) means warning (oh it's a danger warning),
      C                            G
Can't hold out (cant hold out) I'm burning (No no nooooo)

Etc.
