Take my hand sweet darlin'
Wipe that frown off your face
I don't love anyone but you know
No one can take your place but
Sometimes I worry darlin'
The way you seem to hoard my love

Just take what you need
Don't empty out the store
Just take what you need
'Cause I ain't got much more

Took a stroll in the country
Some peace of mind to find
Wire fences everywhere
No place to rest my mind
Seems like a shame to me
The way some people hoard their land

Just take what you need
Don't empty out the store
Just take what you need
'Cause I ain't got much

Took a look in the paper
While tryin' to eat a bite
You know I read the evening news
And lost my appetite
Some have the nerve to ask
For more respect from you and me

Just take what you need
Don't empty out the store
Just take what you need
'Cause I ain't got much

Take my hand sweet darlin'
Wipe that frown off your face
I don't love anyone but you know
No one can take your place but
Sometimes I worry darlin'
The way you seem to hoard my love

Just take what you need
Don't empty out the store
Just take what you need
'Cause I ain't got much
