    "Don't Take The Girl" Lyrics

    Tim McGraw

    Johnny's daddy was takin him fishing
    When he was eight years old.
    A little girl came through the front gate
    Holdin 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 momma'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...
