The Taker
Recorded by Waylon Jennings
Written by Kris Kristofferson and Shel Silverstein

D7     G
He's a giver he'll give her
                           D7          Am
The kind of attention that she's never known
He's a helper he'll help her
To open the doors that she can't on her own

He's a lover and he'll love her
                         F            C
In ways that she's never been loved before
       D7           Am
He's a getter he'll get her
   D7          Am       D7                         G
By getting her into the world she's been hungering for

D7     G
He's a charmer he'll charm her
                            D7      Am
With money and manners that I never learned
He's a leader he'll lead her
Across pretty bridges he's planning to burn

He's a talker he'll talk her
                             F              C
Right off of her feet but he won't talk for long
             D7             Am
Cause he's a doer and he'll do her
    D7           Am    D7                        G
The way that I'd never damned if he won't do her wrong

He's a taker he'll take her to places
And make her fly higher than she's ever dared to

He'll take his time before taking advantage
Taking her easy and slow

And after he's taken the body and soul
She gives him he'll take her for granted
          C            D7
But he’ll take off and leave her
C                D7            G
Taken all of her pride when he goes
