Verse 1

He'sA a giver,he'll give her The kind of attention that she's never kE7nown He's a helper,he'll help her To open the doors that she can't on herA own He's a lover,he'll love her In ways that she never has been loved bDefore And E7he's a getter,he'll get her By gettin' her into the world she's been hungerinA' for

Verse 2

He'sA a charmer,and he'll charm her With money and manners that i never leE7arned He's a leader,and he'll lead her Across pretty bridges he's planning to bAurn He's a talker,he'll talk her Right of her feet,but he won't talk for lDong CausE7e he's a doer,and he'll do her The way that i never And damned if he won't do her Awrong

Chorus

And Dhe's s taker,he'll take her To places and make her fly higher than she's ever darE7ed to He'll take this time before takin' advantage Takin' her easy and sAlow And Dafter he's taken her body and soul That she gives him,he'll take her for grE7anted Then he'll take off and leave her Takin' all of her pride as he gAoes Chorus. Thanks to Jan Ekeland for the lyrics. Perret Charles-Amir. Some time ago a fellow somewhere in eastern Europe (I think) asked for the lyrics to 'The Taker' by Kris Kristofferson, and in my online written reply to him there were two or three minor faults. It didn't occur to me at that time that he would copy it onto Nevada...:-) Here is the corrected version... I guess you can delete these words and repace the former version of the taker with this one. Thanks...! Jan. THE TAKER. by Kris Kristofferson and Shel Silverstein. He's a giver, he'll give her 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, he'll love her in ways that she never has been loved before And he's a getter, he'll get her by gettin her into the world she's been hungerin' for And 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 her 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 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 planning to burn He's a talker, he'll talk her right of of her feet, but he won't talk for long Cause he's a doer, and he'll do her the way that I never And damned if he won't do her wrong
