Don't Take The Girl Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Johnnys daddy was takin' him fishin
When he was eight years old
A little girl came through the front gate
Holdin a fishin' pole

His dad looked down and smiled
Said, "We cant leave her behind
Son, I know you dont want her to go
But someday youll change your mind"

And Johnny said
"Take Jimmy Johnson
Take Tommy Thompson
Take my best friend Bo"

"Take anybody that you want
As long as she dont go
Take any boy in the world
Daddy please, dont take the girl"

Same old boy, same sweet girl
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 wont be any harm"

And Johnny said
"Take my money
Take my wallet
Take my credit cards"

"Heres the watch that my grandpa gave me
Heres the key to my car
Mister, give it a whirl
But please dont take the girl"

Same old boy, same sweet girl
Five years down the road
Theres gonna be a little one
And she says its time to go

Doctor says
"The babys fine
But youll have to leave
Cause his mommas
Fading fast"

And Johnny hit his knees
And there he prayed
"Take the very breath You gave me
Take the heart from my chest"

"Ill gladly take her place if Youll let me
Make this my last request
Take me out of this world
God, please dont take the girl"

Johnnys daddy
Was takin' him fishin
When he was eight years old
