Words and Music by Craig Martin and Larry W. Johnson
[Csus]Johnny's dadd[F]y [Csus]was takin' him fisi[F]n'
[Csus]When he was eight years [F]old ---
[Csus]A little gir[F]l [Csus]came through the front [F]gate
[Csus]Holdin a fishin' [F]pole
[Em]His dad looked down and smiled,
[F]Said, "We can't leave her behind
Son I know you don't want her to go
Someday you'll change your mind."
And Johnny said,
[Csus]Take Jimmy John[F]son [Csus]take Tommy Tomp[F]son
[F]Ta[sus]ke my best friend [F]Bo.
[Csus]Take anybody that you [F]want a[Csus]s long as she don't [F]go
[Dm]Take any boy in the world -- Daddy, please
[G]Don't take the girl
[Csus]Same ol' bo[F]y, [Csus]same sweet gir[F]l, [Csus]ten years down the [F]road
[Csus]He held her tight and kissed her lips [F]in [Csus]front of the picture show.
[Em]A stranger came and pulled a gun and [F]grabbed her by the arm
[Em]Said, "If you do what I tell you to, [F]there won't be any harm."
And Johnny said
[Csus]"Take my mone[F]y, [Csus]take my wall[F]et, [Csus]take my credit c[F]ards
[Csus]Here's the watch that my grandpa gave [F]me, [Csus]here's the key to my [F]car.
[Dm]Mr., give it a whirl, but please, d[G]on't take the girl.
[Csus]Same ol' bo[F]y, [Csus]same sweet gir[F]l, [Csus]five years down the [F]road
[Csus]There's gonna be a little [F]one [Csus]and she says, "It's time to [F]go."
[Em]Doctor said, "The baby's fine [F]but , you'll have to leave
[Em]`Cause his mama's fadin' fast," [F]and Johhny hit his knees.
And then he prayed,
[Csus]"Take the very breath you gave [F]me, [Csus]take the heart from my [F]chest.
[Csus]I'll gladly take her place if you'll have [F]me
[Csus]Make this my last req[F]uest
[Dm]Take me out of this world, God, please, [G]don't take the girl.
