David Allan Coe – Take Time To Know Her lyrics

Take time to know her
Take time to know her

I found a woman, one I knew I truly love
She was everything, I'd ever been dreaming of
And she was bad, I didn't know it
Her pretty smile never did show it
All I knew is what I could see
And I knew I wanted her for me

I took her home to mama
Mama wanted to see my future bride
She looked at us both
Then she called me to her side

She said, "Take time to know her
It's not an overnight thing
Take time to know her
Son don't rush into this thing"

But I didn't listen to my mama
I went straight down to the church
I just couldn't wait to have that little girl of mine
I couldn't even wait till I got home from work
The preacher was there, so was my future bride
He looked at us both and then he called me to his side

He said, "Son take time to know her
It's not an overnight thing
Take time to know her
Please don't rush into this thing"

But it looked like every thing
It looked like everything was gonna be all right
Then I came home from work a little early one night
When I walked in the house, I saw her there
She was kissin' on another man and I knew right then
I knew right then what my mama meant
When she took me by the hand

She said, "Son take time to know her
Boy it's not an overnight thing
Take time to know her
There's no reason for you to rush into this thing"

Take time to know her
It's not, love is not an easy thing
Take time to know her
Boy please don't rush into this thing
Take time to know her
