Hot Line

This song is by Black Sabbath and appears on the album Born Again (1983).

Take me to the river, baby, drink my wine
When I'm going down, won't you throw me a line?
Lead me to religion, take me up them stairs
When I take a tumble, will you say me some prayers?

When will you show me a sign?
When will you throw me a line?

Help me to the answer, baby, set me free
I'm torn between the devil and the deep blue sea
Maybe if you wanted you could save my face
Keep me out of trouble and I'm a living disgrace

When will you show me a sign?
When will you throw me a line?

Oh baby, throw me on a hard line
Throw me on a hard line
The hard line's on fire

Show me to a sucker and you'll see my name
Standing in a line with the shadows of fame
Lead me to a legend take me up them stairs
When I take a tumble will you say me some prayers

When will you show me a sign?
When will you throw me a line?

When will you show me a sign?
When will you throw me a line?

When will you show me a sign?
When will you throw me a line?

Oh, put me on the hot line
Put me on the hot line
The hot line

To the river, baby, drink my wine
To the river and drink my wine
Take me to the river and drink my wine
Take me, take me, take me
Take me to the hard line
Baby, take me to the hard line
Take me to the hard line
