Execute the query in SQL Server Management Studio, then right-click the result grid and select "Save Results As" from the context menu. TAB delimited text is one of the available file formats.

If records count is very high, you can use Import/ Export Wizard. Just right click on database and click on export data.... , next all steps are self-explanatory.

Yes, I'm also with the Export data option. Instead of choosing a table you need to provide the query that you want.
