Take A Red

Lyrics: David Nelson, Spencer Dryden
Music: David Nelson, Spencer Dryden

Played by the New Riders of the Purple sage in the late 1970s.

Chorus
Lay down, baby, take a red
Lay down, baby, take a red
Take a red, take a red
Till it nullifies your head
Lay down, baby, take a red

You can't think it's good for you
You can't think it's good for you
You can't think, you can't think
With your head down in the sink
You can't think it's good for you

[chorus]

I love you, baby, ain't no lie
I love you, baby, ain't no lie
Yes I love you, baby, but I got to say goodbye
When you take a bunch of poison to get high
[chorus]

[chorus]
