Take my hand sweet darlin'
Wipe that smile off your face
I don't love anyone but you
No one can take your place
But sometimes I worry darlin'
The way you seem to hog my love.

Just take what you need
Don't empty out the store
Just take what you need
'Cause I ain't got much more.

Took a stroll in the country
Some peace of mind to find
Wire fences everywhere
