DI found a AwomanG I felt I tDruly loved DShe was everytAhingG I'd ever been dDreaming of DBut she was bad -A I didn't know it G Her pretty smile nDever did show it DAll I knew was wAhat I could see G And I knew I wDanted her for me single notes BmI took her home to GMama G G G A B Bm Mama wanted to see my future Gbride G G G A B Bm Oh she looked at us Gboth A And then she called me to her side, she said "Son, DTake time to Aknow her G It's not an Dovernight thing DTake time to kAnow her G Please don't Drush into this thing." DBut I didn't listen to AMama G I went straight to the cDhurch DI just couldn't wait to have a little Agirl of mine GWhen I got Dhome from work DThe preacher was there A So was my future bride GHe looked at us both and the he Dcalled me to his side, he said "Son, Dtake time to Aknow her G It's not an Dovernight thing DTake time to kAnow her G Please don't Drush into this thing." DWell it looked like everything was gonna Aturn out alright GAnd then I came home a little Dearly one night DAnd there she was Akissing on another man GNow I know what Mama meant when she Dtook me by the hand and said "Son, Dtake time to Aknow her G It's not an Dovernight thing DTake time to kAnow her G Please don't Drush into this thing." DTake time to Aknow her GIt's not an oveDrnight thing DTake time to Aknow her Please Gdon't Drush into this thing."
