Where the White Boys Dance

Take me to the place where the white boys dance
Take me to the place where they run and play
My baby is gone, you might have a chance
Just take me to the place where the white boys dance

They hug in silence
As the sun sets
On their empty street
Her suspicions, well they're risin' high
And the man who sweeps them off she doesn't need

She walks inside and
Pours a strong one
To put her mind at ease
Itís the calm before another storm
And her brain shifts from the whiskey to the keys

Take me to the place where the white boys dance
Take me to the place where they run and play
My baby is gone, you might have a chance
Just take me to the place where the white boys....dance

Her heart is racing
She phones a friend and says
ìIím in an awful place
That foolís been messing round on me
Iíve seen it in his eyes and on his face"

"Hold on a minute, youíre talkin' crazy
Donít be that jealous girl
Just tell Levon you need an hour or two
'Cause weíre gonna go and change somebodyís world"

Take me to the place where the white boys dance
Take me to the place where they run and play
My baby is gone, you might have a chance
Just take me to the place where the white boys dance

Itís the calm before another storm
Itís the calm before another storm
And her brain shifts from the whisky to the keys

Take me to the place where the white boys dance
Take me to the place where they run and play
My baby is gone, you might have a chance
Just take me to the place where the white boys....dance
