About I Got a Line on You

"I Got a Line on You" is a rock song by American rock band Spirit, originally recorded during the sessions for their second album, The Family That Plays Together, between March 11 and September 18, 1968. The song was composed by guitarist/singer Randy California, recorded in sessions produced by Lou Adler. The single credits engineering by Eric Wienbang. Released as a single ahead of the album by Ode Records in the US in October 1968, it began a slow rise up the charts. It was picked up by college radio in late November. It was the second single released by the band. The B-side was "She Smiled" (Ode catalog number ZS7-115). 2:37 in length, the song finally peaked at #25 on the U. S. Top 100 on March 15, 1969, and #28 in Canada, March 24th. Some international versions were released later in 1968 and early 1969, distributed by CBS Records or Columbia Records. Some were produced in psychedelic colored vinyl patterns, while the Ode release was on plain black vinyl with a plain yellow label. The album version was slightly longer at 2:39, while the greatest hits version is timed at 2:41. A 7:34 version appears on the band's final reunion album, 1984's The Thirteenth Dream.

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

Gotta put your arms around me
With every bit of your love
If you know what to do, I'll make love to you 
Cause you got the right line to make it through these times
I got a line on you babe
I got a line on you babe

You know my winter's almost over
My summer, she's comin' on strong

Love you all year long
I got a line on you babe
I got a line on you
I got a line on you babe
I got a line on you
