THE TAKER
written by Kris Kristofferson and Shel Silverstein
performed by Waylon Jennings
tab transcribed by Collins Crapo

D / / / 2 / A7 / D / /

He's a giver and he'll give her
                                       A
The kind of attention that she's never known
He's a helper and he'll help her
         A7             D
Open the doors that she can't on her own
He's a lover and he'll love her
                         G
In ways that she's never been loved before
       A7
He's a getter and he'll get her
                                                D
Gettin' her into the world she's been hungryin' for

Verse 2:
He's a charmer and he'll charm her
With money in manners that I've never learned
He's a leader and he'll lead her
Across many 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
In and I'll be damned if he won't do her wrong

CHORUS (repeat and fade):
       G
He's a taker, he'll take her
To places and make her fly
                       A
Higher than she's ever dared to
He'll take his time before takin' advantage
           A7       D
Takin' her easy and slow
    G
And after he's taken the body and soul
                                       A
That she gives him, he'll take her for granted
Take off and leave her
                  A7            D
Takin' all of her pride when he goes
