(as recorded by patsy cline, february 7, 1963)
Ray price performed "you took her off my hands"

You took him off my hands
When you stepped in
You changed everything
We're not even friends

Don't leave the job half done
Leave nothing behind
You took him off my hands
Now please take him off my mind

Please take his photograph
Engraved on my heart so blue
And take all his memories
He now belongs to you

(repeat 2, 3, 2)

You took him off my hands
Now please take him off my mind
