Cut Across Shorty
Recorded by Carl Smith
Written by Marijohn Wilkin and Wayne P. Walker

G C
A country boy named Shorty and a city boy named Dan
G
Had to prove who could run the fastest
A7 D7
To win Miss Lucy's hand
G C
Now Dan had all the money and he also had the looks
G D7
But Shorty must-a had something boy
G D7 G
That can't be found in the books

C
Oh cut across Shorty (Shorty cut across)
G
Well it's what Miss Lucy said
C
Cut across Shorty (Shorty cut across)
G D7 G
Well it's you that I want to wed

C
Now Dan with his long legs flying left Shorty far behind
G
But Shorty could hear him holler
A7 D7
Miss Lucy you will soon be mine
G C
But Shorty wasn't worried there was a smile upon his face
G D7
Well he knew that he was gonna win
G D7 G
Cause Lucy had fixed the race

Repeat #2

C
Now Dan had been in training weeks before the race
G A7 D7
And he was sure that Shorty would end up in second place
G C
But just like that old story about the turtle and the hare
G D7
When Dan crossed the finish line
G D7 G
Well he found little Shorty there

Repeat #2

D7 G
Well it's you that I want to wed
