Hi Greg-

Johnny's daddy was takin' him fisin'
When he was eight years old ---
A little girl came through the front gate
Holdin a fishin' pole
Bm7                Cmaj7         Bm7
His dad looked down and smiled,
Said, "We can't leave her behind
Am7                        G/B
  Son I know you don't want   her to go
Cmaj7                            D7sus
Someday you'll change your mind."

And Johnny said,
G Am/G            G  Am/G           G
  Take Jimmy Johnson take Tommy Tompson
Am/G         G
Take my best friend Bo.
Am/G       G Am/G G   Am/G G  Am/G        G
Take anybody that you want as long as she don't go
                         Am7              Cmaj9
Take any boy in the world -- Daddy, please
D7sus                    G C/G  G
     Don't take the girl

Same ol' boy, same sweet girl, ten years down the road
He held her tight and kissed her lips in front of the picture show.
A stranger came and pulled a gun and 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.
Mr., give it a whirl, but please, don't take the girl.

Same ol' 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 said, "The baby's fine but , you'll have to leave
`Cause his mama's fadin' fast," and Johhny hit his knees.
And then he prayed,
"Take the very breath you gave me, take the heart from my chest.
I'll gladly take her place if you'll have me
Make this my last request
Take me out of this world, God, please, don't take the girl."
