lyrics

Take It Back
(Christopher M. Murphy)

Take it back.
Take it back.
Take it back.
Don’t you give me no slack.
Gonna take her home to meet my ma’ and pa’.

Well she thinks she’s going home down to Louisiana.
A backwards old gal I can’t even stand her.
Her jeans hang down upon her waste.
She lives her life at a slow pace.
Thumb in the air, begging for a ride.
Shoes worn thin, no future in site.
Where did ya find her my friends all ask.
Down by the corner right next to the trash.

Take it back.
Take it back.
Take it back.
Don’t you give me no slack.
Gonna take her home to meet my ma’ and pa’.

I didn’t know her name or her purpose here.
I knew she was different from what I hear.
She got a smile that’ll rival the ages.
Her mood swings in seventeen stages.
Now I’m not gentle nor am I aggressive,
But this here girl thought I was impressive.
A ford truck that my parents bought.
Driving for days yet we never fought.

Take it back.
Take it back.
Take it back.
Don’t you give me no slack.
Gonna take her home to meet my ma’ and pa’.

Yeah and all the times she cried out loud,
“My daddy treated me bad and I ain’t proud”.
A contradiction to what she was told.
I took that little lady right out of the cold.
Well we went our separate ways.
I still can’t believe shit happened that way.
And now I sing this song because, well I…
I miss her

Take it back.
Take it back.
Take it back.
Don’t you give me no slack.
Gonna take her home to meet my ma’ and pa’.
My ma’ and pa’.
