Jean Shepard – Take Possession lyrics

You can take possession darling when I hear you say I do
When you slip a ring on my finger take possession I belong to you

Some folks give away their love too soon when their feelings make them blind
But I'll wait until my honeymoon for I'll still be old fashioned kind
You can take possession darling...
[ steel - guitar ]
When you take me in your arms each night and you say what I want to know
We can let temptation burn too bright even though I do love you so
Surely love can wait if love is great please protect me when we're alone
Keep the flame of love real low my love till my name's the same as your own
You can take possession darling...
