"The Taker" Aparece en el album de Waylon Jennings "The Taker/Tulsa" de 1971.

The LP rose to #12 on the Billboard country albums chart while the single "The Taker" was a Top 5 hit single.

The Taker/Tulsa is notable for featuring four compositions by Kris Kristofferson, who had emerged as a beacon for songwriters who wanted to bring a new poetic realism to country music. Jennings, who had bristled when RCA producers told him what songs to record, began demanding more control over his records on all fronts, and began recording songs by newer songwriters like Kristofferson, Shel Silverstein, and Mickey Newbury. 

Waylon Jennings - The Taker

 

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 and he'll love her in ways

That she's never been loved before

He's a getter, he'll get her by gettin' her

Into the world she's been hungerin' for.

 

He's a charmer, he'll charm her with money

And manners that I never learned

He's a leader, he'll lead her across

Pretty bridges he's plannin' to burn.

 

He's a talker, 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 the way

That I'd never, damned if he won't do her wrong.

 

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 the body and soul

She gives him he'll take her for granted

Take off and leave her taken all of her

Pride when he goes.

 

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...
