Auctioneer
Recorded by Leroy Van Dyke
Written Leroy Van Dyke and Buddy Black

Hey well alright sir here we go there
And what are ya' gonna give for 'em
I have a six hundred dollar down here
Now ten and now twenty-five and now thirty-five
And now there fifty now sixty
Will ya give me sixty now seventy-five
Seventy-five another eighty-five dollars
Oughta buy 'em there

G
There was a boy in Arkansas
C
Who wouldn't listen to his ma
D7 G D7
When she told him that he should go to school
G
He'd sneak away in the afternoon
C
Take a little walk and then pretty soon
D7 G
You'd find him at the local auction barn

C
Well he'd stand and listen carefully
G
And then pretty soon he began to see
A7 D7
How the auctioneer could talk so rapidly
G
He said oh my it's do or die
C
I've got to learn that auction cry
D7 G
Gotta make my mark and be an auctioneer


Twenty-five dollar bid it now thirty dollar thirty
C
Will you gimmie thirty make it thirty
D7 G
Bid it on a thirty dollar will you gimmie thirty dollar bid

Thirty dollar bid it now thirty-five
C
Will you gimmie thirty-five

To make it thirty-five to bid it a thirty-five
D7 G
Who woulda bid it at a thirty-five dollar bid


Well as time went on he did his best
C
And all could see he didn't jest
D7 G D7
He practiced calling bids both night and day
G
His pop would find him behind the barn
C
Just a working up an awful storm
D7 G
As he tried to imitate the auctioneer

C
His dad said son we just can't
G
Stand to have a mediocre man
A7 D7
Selling things at action using our name
G
I'll send you off to auction school
C
And then you'll be nobody's fool
D7 G
You can take your place among the best


Thirty-five dollar bid it now forty dollar forty
C
Will you gimmie forty make it forty
D7 G
Bid it on a forty dollar will you gimmie forty dollar bid

Forty dollar bid it now forty-five
C
Will you gimmie forty-five

To make it forty-five to bid it a forty-five
D7 G
Who woulda bid it at a forty-five dollar bid


So from that boy who went to school
C
There grew a man who played it cool
D7 G D7
He came back home a full fledged auctioneer
G
And the people came from miles around
C
Just to hear him make that rhythmic sound
D7 G
That fill their hearts with such a happy cheer

C
His fame spread out from shore to shore
G
He had all he could do and more
A7 D7
Had to buy a plane to get around
G
Now he's the best in all the land
C
Let's pause and give that man a hand
D7 G
He's the best of all the auctioneers


Forty-five dollar bid it now fifty dollar fifty
C
Will you gimmie fifty make it fifty
D7 G
Bid it on a fifty dollar will you gimmie fifty dollar bid

Fifty dollar bid it now fifty-five
C
Will you gimmie fifty-five

To make it fifty-five to bid it a fifty-five
D7 G
Sold that hog for a fifty dollar bill


Hey well alright sir open the gate
And let 'em out and walk 'em boys
Here we come with lot number 29 in
What'd ya gonna give for ‘em

I have a twenty-five I oughta get thirty-five
And now a fifty make it fifty bid it along at fifty
Now sixty will ya give me sixty now seventy-five
And now eight-five and now nine-five

And now it’s at seventy-five
And a two and a three and a four
And a five and a six now seven
Now eight hundred dollars
And a buy ‘em there
