Spirit – I Got A Line On You

I have always liked this song. I saw this song listed in my friend Hanspostcard‘s countdown of the songs of 1969 a few months ago and I have been listening to it ever since.

I Got A Line On You peaked at #25 in 1969. Randy California wrote this song and it was on their second album The Family That Plays Together which peaked at #22 in 1969. Spirit was formed in 1967 in Los Angeles.  Randy California (born as Randy Craig Wolfe)(guitars, vocals), Mark Andes (bass), and Jay Ferguson (vocals, percussion). With the addition of California’s stepfather Ed Cassidy on drums, and keyboard player John Locke.

Jimi Hendrix gave Randy Wolfe the nickname Randy California.

 

I Got A Line On You

Let me take you, baby, down to the river bed
Got to tell you somethin’, go right to your head
I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe
I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe

Gotta put your arms around me with every bit of your love
If you know what to do, I’ll make love to you
We got the right line to make it through these times

I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe
I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe

I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe
I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe

Now listen, our winter’s almost over
This summer, she’s comin’ on strong
I can love you, love you, love you
Love you all year long

I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe
I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe
I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe
I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe

I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe
I, I got a line, I got a line on you, babe
