Lyrics

Runnin’ around like you’re front page news
Lonely eyes and your motorcycle boots
Tattooed heart and your jet-black hair
Runnin’ round like you don’t care

Half Chorus:
Take me down take me on down the line

Well I was born babe with nothing to lose
But the black man taught me how to sing the blues
Made a little life outta rock ‘n’ roll
And that crazy California, hustle and flow

Chorus:
Take me down; take me on down the line
Shake me down; shake me on down the line

Well I went too fast with that rhythm and booze
Almost ended up dead like all those other fools
Everyone’s got some sorta ball and chain
What’s life without a little pain?

Chorus:
Take me down; take me on down the line
Shake me down; shake me on down the line

Livin’ in a Hollywood movie dream
And I’m still reachin’ for the stars
Life gets hard and then it gets good
Like I always knew it would

Runnin’ around like you’re front page news
Lonely eyes and your motorcycle boots
Tattooed heart and your jet-black hair
Runnin’ round like you don’t care

Chorus:
Take me down; take me on down the line
Shake me down; shake me on down the line
