  • Been waitin' at these crossroads
    Forever and a day
    On a guy to buy my soul

    I spend all night and day
    How much harder can I play
    You know I gave my life to Rock n' Roll

    Here we go

    Momma begged me please
    Yes, she got down on her knees
    Said 'You'll burn in that Mississippi sun'
    But I'm the only one that's standing here
    So Mama don't you have no fear
    I'm either last or I've already won

    Here I go

    Take me down
    Take me down
    Take me down
    Won't you take me down

    Standing at the crossroads
    A dried up pen in hand
    The conversation went like this
    'Tell me your desire why you pulled me from the fire
    And we'll seal the deal with a kiss'
    Said 'I wanna raise the dead
    Find a note that I can shred
    On my walls I scrawl my gods
    Don't care what happens when I die
    As long as I'm alive
    All I wanna do is rock, rock, rock!

    Take me down
    Take me down
    Take me down
    Won't you take me down

    Sign with the devil, sign with the devil, sign with the devil
    Sign with the devil, sign with the devil, sign with the devil
    Sign with the devil, sign with the devil, sign with the devil
    Sign with the devil, sign with the devil, sign with the devil

    Take me down
    Take me down
    Take me down
    Won't you take me down

    Take me down
    Take me down
    Take me down
    Won't you take me down Writer/s: BEN PHILLIPS, TAYLOR MOMSEN
