DOnt Take The Girl - Tim Mcgraw

Johnny's daddy was takin' him fishin'
When he was eight years old
Little girl came through the front gate
Holdin' a fishin' pole
His dad looked down and smiled,
Said, "We can't leave her behind
Son, I know you don't want her to go
But someday you'll change you're mind"
And Johnny said

"Take Jimmy Johnson,
Take Tommy Thompson,
Take my best friend Bo
Take anybody that you want
As long as she don't go
Take any boy in the world
Daddy, please
Don't take the girl"

Same old boy
Same sweet boy
Ten years down the road
He held her tight and kissed her lips in
Front of the picture show
Stranger came and pulled a gun
Grabbed her by the arm
Said, "If you do what I tell you to there
Won't be any harm"
And Johnny said,

"Take my money,
Take my wallet,
Take my credit cards
Here's a watch that my grandpa gave me
Here's the key to my car
Mr., give it a whirl
But please
Don't take the girl"

Same old boy
Same sweet girl
Five years down the road
There's gonna be a little one and she
Says it's time to go
Doctor says, "The baby's fine
But you'll hafta leave
Cuz his mamma's fading fast"
And Johnny hit his knees
And there he prayed,

"Take the very breath you gave me
Take the heart from my chest
I'll gladly take her place if you'll let me
Make this my last request
Take me outta this world
God, please
Don't take the girl"

Thanx Soad
I also like the song it's your love that is such a pretty song by him
I got no problem with it but why are more and more people getting into country music these days?
Been a country fan for a long time. I like all music. Besides if you were a fan of rock music from the 80's then you should like the sound of country music today. Todays country sounds similar to a lot of the rock (not metal or hairband rock) music from the 80's like John Cougar Melloncamp and Neil Young. Give it a try you might like it. Besides we all know you watch CMT to check out all the hot country chicks IOHN. From now just don't put the channel on mute when you are gawking.
Your SOAD you never know i wouldnt turn down a hot country chick cause you know what they say about those southern women.
