Don’t Take The Girl Lyrics

Johnny’s daddy was taking him fishing
When he was eight years old
A little girl came through the front gate
Holding a fishing 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 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 don’t go
Take any boy in the world
Daddy, please
Don’t 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 won’t be any harm.”

And Johnny said

“Take my money
Take my wallet
Take my credit cards
Here’s the watch that my grandpa gave me
Here’s the key to my car
Mister, 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 have to leave
‘Cause 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 out of this world
God, please
Don’t take the girl.”

Johnny’s daddy was taking him fishing
When he was eight years old
