Lyrics

Last night I dreamed we was running through the outlands

Tears streaming, your pretty face all a wreck

(I held your daddy's gun in my tremblin' hands)

And down the highway another stranger comes

You gotta take 'em, baby, when they come

Little girl put on your red dress

Cause we're goin' out on the town tonight

(Better bring along a switchblade)

'Cos, for sure, some fool's gonna wanna fight

You've got to take 'em, baby, as they come

You gotta take 'em, take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em, baby, as they come

God save the rider in the black night

Save the man who taught that it was right

(To do what they have done, girl)

To become what we have become

You gotta take 'em, baby, when they come

Little girl, gone are the days

Faded away into the clear blue night

(And all the vows that we made)

Lie shattered and broken in the morning light

You gotta take 'em, baby, when they come

You gotta take 'em, take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em, baby, as they come

I know your heart is breakin'

I can feel it too, girl

Though my finger on the trigger's shakin'

Here I swear to you, girl

If I could take all your sorrow so that you'd never cry, girl, or be blue

(Come tomorrow)

That's what I'd do for you, pretty one

I swear I'll take 'em baby when they come

Take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em, baby, as they come

[Outro]

Take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em as they come, girl

Take 'em, baby, as they come

Take 'em, baby, as they come

Take 'em, baby, as they come


Take 'em, baby, as they come
