The Love You Steal
Recorded by Hawkshaw Hawkins
Written by Ted Edlin

C A7 D7
There’s a girl at the door please go answer it dear
G7 C
I should have told you before someday she’d be here
F C A7
She’ll show you a paper proving we said I do
D7 G7
Then you’ll know I must go she’ll take me from you

C A7 D7
Sure I love you my darling so please let her in
G7 C
The time has arrived we must pay for my sins
F C A7
You won’t have to ask me you’ll know how I feel
D7 G7 C
Just as I know my darling you can’t keep love you steal


F C A7
Yes we were happily married it’s been some time ago
D7 G7
And then something happened what it was I don’t know
But she left me she’s been gone a long long while
And when I grew lonely and needed the comfort
Of a companions sweet smile I found you
And you gave me all the things that she took away
And you’ll never know how I’ve dreaded the thought
That she’d be coming back some day
A7 D7
But now that she’s here and there’s nothing we can do
G7 C
That paper says I’m hers and the law says we’re through

A7 D7
Sure I love you my darling but go to the door
G7 C
I know you’ll forgive though your young heart is sore
F C A7
Maybe someday if we pray God will hear our appeal
D7 G7 F C
Through His mercy and wisdom we won’t need love you steal
