I’m willing to bet we all remember the first time we heard “Don’t Take The Girl” from Tim McGraw.
Written by Craig Martin and Larry W. Johnson, it was recorded and released in March 1994 as the second single from his album Not a minute too soon.
The fifth single of his career, it was his first #1 in a long, long line of #1 hit singles.
The traumatic, heartbreaking story of Johnny’s developing love for his partner, only to be left on a cliffhanger about her health and well-being in the final verse, still makes me burst into tears just thinking about it.
But in country music, it’s been proven that sad songs make us happy. You can Check out our playlist If you want to test that theory, or you can take it from this viral husband on TikTok who isn’t a country fan but was caught crying after his wife forced him to analyze the narrative behind the Tim McGraw classic.
The video features a rap-loving husband on his first journey through the bleak tale of “Don’t Take The Girl,” and to no surprise, like the rest of us, he loses his composure and finds himself choking on the second verse even over, and his wife shares the entire journey with her followers.
His final thoughts on this experience:
“How can you on Tim McGraw’s ‘Don’t Take The Girl?!’ It will make me emotional every time… It’s a sad song!”
We’ve all been there, man…
