Now a country boy named Shorty
And a city boy named Dan
Had to prove who could run the fastest
To wed Miss Lucy's hand

Now Dan had all the money
And he also had the looks
But Shorty musta had that something boys
That can't be found in books

Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
That's what Miss Lucy said
Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
You know it's you that I want to wed
