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