about

Stolen from Jett and the boys ... and added April 14th ... we'll work on it and see if it's a keeper ... certainly goes well with the next two.

lyrics

Uh huh -

Old Joe Boudreau had a still on the hill
With the ‘G’ men and ’T’ men just sniffing around
When a couple kids went blind
And another couple died
They knew they had to find him quick and take the man

Take him down - take the man down
Take him down - that’s the only way they do it
When Old Joe missed the curve ‘cuz his brakes just wouldn’t work
They knew they’d finally found a way to take the man down
Take the man down …

Uh huh -

Tony was the king of the sex and drug type thing
Get high all day on China White and play with his gun
When he shot his self a cop
After shooting up the town
They knew they had to find him quick and take the man down

Take him down - take the man down
Take him down - that’s the only way they do it
When a girl he used to beat cooked him up his final treat
They knew they’d finally found a way to take the man down
Take the man down …

Uh huh -

If you step out of song, you’re dead, right or wrong
You’ll cover up your tracks and keep an ear to the ground
When the morning finds you shot down
Like a dog out in the street
You’ll know they finally found a way to take the man down

Take him down - take the man down
Take him down - that’s the only way they do it
You cover up your tracks and keep an ear to the ground
In the end they’re gonna find a way to take the man down

Take him down - take the man down
Take him down - that’s the only way they do it
When the morning finds you fenced up like a mongrel in the pound
You know they finally found a way to take the man down
Take the man down

Uh huh -
Take the man down - take the man down
Uh huh -
Take the man down - take the man down
Uh huh -
Take the man down
