C / / / 2 / / / 3 / /
Now a country boy called Shorty
And a city boy named Dan
Had to prove who could win the fastest
   D7              G
To win Miss Lucy's hand
Now Dan had all the money
And he also had the looks
But Shorty must've had somethin', boys
     G7                C
That can't be found in books

Well, "Cut across, Shorty, Shorty, cut across!"
That's what Miss Lucy said
"Cut across, Shorty, Shorty, cut across;
     G7          C
It's you I wanna wed!"

Verse 2:
Now Dan had been in trainin'
A week before the race
He made up his mind ol' Shorty
Would end in 2nd place
And Dan, with his long legs a-flyin'
Left Shorty far behind
And Shorty heard him holler out
"Miss Lucy, you'll soon be mine!"


Verse 3:
But Shorty wasn't worried
There was a smile upon his face
He knew that he was gonna win
'Cause Lucy had fixed the race
And just like that old story
About the turtle and the hare
When Dan crossed over the finish line
He found Shorty waitin' there

(repeat and fade):
      G7          C
"It's you I wanna wed!"
