Track Info

G [Verse]
G Johnny's daddy was takin' him fishin' G When he was eight years old G A little girl came through

the front gate
G Holdin' a fishin' pole Bm C His dad looked down and smiled Bm C Said, "We can't leave her behind Am7 G Son, I know you don't want her to go C But someday you'll
change your mind,"

and Johnny said
G "Take, Jimmy Johnson,

take Tommy Thompson
G Take my best friend, Bo G Take anybody that you want as G Long as she don't go Am Take any boy in the world C D Daddy, please,
don't take the girl"
G Same old boy, same sweet girl G Ten years down the road G He held her tight and

kissed her lips in
G Front of thе picture show Bm C Stranger came and pullеd a gun Bm C Grabbed her by the arm Am7 Said, "If you do what
I tell you two, there
C D Won't be any harm,"

and Johnny said
G "Take my money, take my wallet G Take my credit cards G Here's the watch that

my grandpa gave me
G Here's the key to my car Am Mister, give it a whirl C D G But, please, don't take the girl" [Solo]
G [Verse]
G Same old boy, same sweet girl G Five years down the road G There's gonna be a little

one and she
G Says, "It's time to go" Bm C Doctor says, "The baby's fine Bm C But you'll have to leave Am7 G 'Cause his mama's fadin' fast" and C D Johnny hit his knees and

there he prayed
G "Take the very breath you gave me G Take the heart from my chest G I'll gladly take her place

if you'll let me
G Make this my last request Am Take me out of this world C D God, please,
don't take the girl"

takin' him fishin'
