Cut Across Shorty  Eddie Cochran

Cut Across, Shorty:Eddie Cochran.
Recorded in 1959.

[C]Now a country boy called Shorty and a
[F]city boy named Dan,
had to [C]prove who could run the fastest
to [D7]win miss Lucy's [G]hand.
Now [C]Dan had all the money and he [F]also
had the looks.
But [C]Shorty must have had something, boys,
that [G7]can't be found in [C]books.
CHORUS:
Well, 'Cut across [F]Shorty, Shorty, cut across.'
That's [C]what miss Lucy said.
'Cut across [F]Shorty, Shorty, cut across..
it's [G7]you I wanna [C]wed.

Now, [C]Dan had been in training, a [F]week before
the race.
He [C]made up his mind ol' Shorty, would [D7]end
in second [G]place.
And [C]Dan with his long legs a-flyin' left
[F]Shorty far behind.
And [C]Shorty heard him holler out..
'Miss [G7]Lucy, you'll soon be [C]mine!'
CHORUS:
Well, 'Cut across [F]Shorty, Shorty, cut across.'
That's [C]what miss Lucy said.
'Cut across [F]Shorty, Shorty, cut across..
it's [G7]you I wanna [C]wed.

But [C]Shorty wasn't worried, there was a [F]smile
upon his face.
He [C]knew that he was a-goin' to win,
cause [D7]Lucy had fixed the [G]race.
And [C]just like that old story, about the [F]turtle
and the hare.
When [C]Dan crossed over the finish line,
he [G7]found Shorty waiting [C]there.
CHORUS:
Well, 'Cut across [F]Shorty, Shorty, cut across.'
That's [C]what miss Lucy said.
'Cut across [F]Shorty, Shorty, cut across..
it's [G7]you I wanna [C]wed...
OUTRO:
It's [G7]you I wanna [C]wed..it's [G7]you I wanna [C]wed.(Fade.)
A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
