If the sun should set tonight on all my hopes and cares
There is one whose smiling face the gods would see
Because she'll walk along beside me up the golden stairs
They'll never, never take her love from me

What a fool I was to go break the trust she gave
And to see her love turn into sympathy
It's the one regret I'll carry with me to my grave
They'll never, ever take her love from me

I'm so thankful for each golden hour of happiness
That we shared together in the used to be
Even though another’s arms are now in fond caress
But they'll never, never take her love from me

I thought I'd make her happy if I stepped aside
But I knew her love would never set me free
And even on the morning she became another’s bride
I said they'll never, never take her love from me

    General Commenti saw a video of elliott playing this song.
    "i just broke up with my girlfriend three days ago, so it seemed like a good idea to play this," he mumbled into the microphone.
    it was so sad. :\
    xo elliott.

    General CommentFrom what I've gathered, the song title is actually "They'll Never Take Her Love From Me". And it's a cover of a Hank Williams Jr/Sr song.

    General CommentProper songwriting credits please!!

    They'll Never Take Her Love From Me was NOT written by Hank Williams - it was Leon Payne.
