Paycheck, Johnny - She's All I Got Lyrics

Well, I say, friend, don't take her, she's all I've got
Please, don't take her love away from me
I'm beggin' you, friend, don't take her, she's all I've got
She's everything in life I'll ever need

She is life when I wanna live
She's everything to me in life that life can give
She's my water when I need to drink
She's the first thought in my mind each time I try to think
Let me tell you now, friend...

She's my fingers when I want to feel
She's the only thing in life to me that's really real
She is love, she's all the love I know
She could kiss the ground in the wintertime and make the flower grow
Let me tell you now, friend...

    I love her ❤️

    Sounds a lot like Merle

  4. BG Love

    I was raised up on country, soul, and rock-n-roll, back in the 70s. I sure am glad. Love the oldies but goodies. So personal and heartfelt. Beautiful sounds for the heart and soul. Deep in the music can be felt. Humanity thrived and was at it's best during trying time on civil unrest, hippies, and lots of fun everywhere. Love was in the air. Now we have hate and confusion. I miss those good old days. God was alive then. But missing in today's world. Peace on earth. Please?

    I can't find an answer online about this, but are there two studio versions of this song (yes, by Johnny Paycheck...not any of the other cover artists). The audio in this vid sings it "she's allllllll I got" but the one I grew up hearing goes "she's all I've got." The only thing I can find so far that sounds close enough to it (if it isn't the song itself) is the live version someone else posted here to YouTube. If anyone has any info, it'd be much appreciated; thanks! 😊

    Edit: I could've sworn the version I remember is the same instrumentals as on the song playing now, but the vocals are more like the vid in this link--> It's driving me crazy that I can't find it... It is possible it was a live version I grew up listening to though. For example, I grew up listening to my mom's copy of Neil Diamond's Greatest Hits album, and a few songs on it were live rather than studio versions for copyright issues. So now, to me those songs sound strange when I hear the actual studio versions of those particular songs lol. The same probably happened with Johnny Paycheck. I don't think my mom had any of his albums, but she did collect record singles of everyone at the time. She also got compilations on tape of various artists...I'm betting it's a tape the song was on though; and/or came on the radio a lot. Anyway, thanks again if anyone is able to help. 😊

    Haggard bonded Johnny out of jail when Johnny shot that guy in a Ohio bar.

    Trapper Cody

    Hag, George Jones, David Allen Coe and I believe waylon Jennings and willie Nelson wrote letters to the governor of Ohio back then even the guy he shot Larry Wise the governor pardoned him

    Dave Mills

    Eddie Brandenburg that’s what Brothers are for
