Walk It Down


by Talking Heads (David Byrne)
I.. I am just a number
I.. hang on to what I got
You... say what you want to
I... I... I... I just try to stay alive
People say, get away, somebody will turn you in
Life, life, without surrender
Togetherness... ecstasy is what I need
I can laugh, but I should cry
When love and understanding are the ultimate crimes

Em - - G  (16x) / C - - - /   / D - - - /    //

 C:	(And I said)
Walk it down, talk it down
(Oh, oh, oh)  Sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there
Walk it down, talk it down
(Oh, oh, oh)  Sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there

G - - - / - - - DC / G - - - / D - C - // (2x)

She... says she remembers
Time... long time ago
We... belong together
I... I.. I... I turn up the radio
Lies, lies and propaganda
I... gonna tell you what I need
Life, life, without surrender
Togetherness... ecstasy is what I need
I got yours and you got mine
And I can swim, but I should fly

 C:	(And I said)
Walk it down, talk it down
(Oh, oh, oh)  Sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there
Walk it down, talk it down
(Oh, oh, oh)  Sympathy, luxury
Somebody will take you there

 B:	And no crime to believe
I took my money, I bet my life
What you see is what you get
But it sure ain't what we need

Bb - - - / Fm - - - / Eb - - - / Gm - - - / Bb - - - / Fm - - - / C - - - / D - - - //

 C:	(Chorus 2x)
