Verse 1: 	
Em           G           D          (4X)          
   Take me  out to the water
   Back to  where  the  West wind blows
   Back to  where it    all began
   The red light and the crossbow

CHORUS:

C                  D

I’ll take ya down


Verse 2:   
Em           G           D      (4X) 
  The exit sign always leads to the west
  Bar      stools      begin to cry
  Red-light            Romeo

   Take me back to where it   all began
   The red light  and   the crossbow

REPEAT CHORUS

Alternate Lyrics:

Take me down to the water
Where the cold wind blows
Take me out to the wildlife, baby
The red light meets the crossbow
I will take you there, 
I will take you there........ down

The exit sign always leads to the west
Bar stools begin to cry
Jupiter looks for a cosmic sign
Still you wonder why
I will take you there, 
will you take me there? ........ down

Underneath the twilight
Stars begin to sigh.....still you wonder why
You can’t think of any words to say 
(note: above line changes almost every night)

Take me out to the strawberry fields
The sun drips like honey through my hair
Let the warm lights fill me up
L.a. or anywhere

I will take you there, 
I will take you there........ down
