Merle Haggard – I'll Take A Chance lyrics

If you don't want to run around
If you wanna settle down
I'll take a chance on loving you

If you will be my very own
If you'll be mine and mine alone
I'll take a chance on loving you

There's a lotta pretty girls
In this wide wide world
But none of them
Should hold a life to you

You're the nicest, the neatest
The cutest and the sweetest
And I'll tell you what I'm gonna do
If you don't want to run around

Did you really mean it or did I just dream it
When you said I was the one for you?
Too late to forget it, too late to regret it
The day that I fell in love with you
If you don't want to run around
