West L.A. Fadeaway Lyrics

by Grateful Dead

I'm looking for a Chateau, 21 rooms but one will do
I'm looking for a Chateau, 21 rooms but one will do
I don't want to buy it
I just want to rent it for a dollar or two

I met an old mistake walking down the street today
I met an old mistake walking down the street today
I didn't want to be mean about it
But I, I didn't have one good thing to say

West L.A. fadeaway
West L.A. fadeaway
Little red light on the highway
Big green light on the speedway, hey hey hey

I had a steady job holding items for the mob
I had a steady job holding items for the mob
Know the pay was pathetic
It's a shame those boys couldn't be more copasetic

I need a West L.A. girl, already know what I need to know
I need a West L.A. girl, already know what I need to know
Name out just before love could go, just how far to go

Well West L.A. fadeaway
West L.A. fadeaway
Little red light on the highway
Big green light on the speedway, hey hey hey

I'm looking for a Chateau, 21 rooms but one will do
I'm looking for a Chateau, 21 rooms but one will do
I don't want to rent it
I just want to use it for a minute or two

Well West L.A. fadeaway
West L.A. fadeaway
Little red light on the highway
Big green light on the speedway, hey hey hey
Little red light on the highway
Big green light on the speedway, hey hey hey
Little red light on the highway
Big green light on the speedway, hey hey
