TAKER, THE (Kris Kristofferson / Shel Silverstein) Waylon Jennings - 1970 Billy Walker - 1970 Kris Kristofferson - 1971 Marty Robbins - 1973 He's a giver and he'll give her The kind of attention that she's never known He's a teacher and he'll teach her To open the doors that she can't on her own He's a lover and he'll love her In ways that she never has been loved before He's a getter and he'll get her By getting her into the world she's been hungry'in for He's a charmer and he'll charm her With money and manners that I never learned He's a leader and he'll lead her Across pretty bridges he's plannin' to burn He's a talker and he'll talk her right off of her feet But he won't talk for long 'Cause he's a doer and he'll do her, the way that I'd never But damned if he won't do her wrong 'Cause 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 takin' advantage Takin' her easy and slow And after he's taken the body and soul that she gives him He'll take her for granted Then he'll take off and leave her Takin' all of her pride as he goes Yes, 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 takin' advantage Takin' her easy and slow And after he's taken the body and soul that she gives him He'll take her for granted Then he'll take off and leave her Takin' all of her pride as he goes (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2012)
