How To Play

INTRO
Cadd9   G/B   G/B (2x hammer on C) Dsus2     x4
 
VERSE 1
      D
Now a country boy named Shorty
      D
And a city boy named Dan
       D
Had to prove who could run the fastest 
   A
To win Miss Lucy's hand
    D
Now Dan had all the money
       G
And he also had the looks
    D
But Shorty must have had something boys,
     A                 D
That can't be found in books
 
CHORUS
           G
Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
       G
That's what Miss Lucy said
           D
Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
     A                D
It's you that I wanna wed
 
Cadd9   G/B   G/B (2x hammer on C) Dsus2
 
VERSE 2
     D
Now, Dan had been in training
        D
About a week before the race
   D
He made up his mind ol' Shorty
      A
Would end in second place
    D
And Dan with his long legs a-flyin'
        G
He left Shorty far behind
    D
And Shorty heard him holler out
     A                    D
Miss Lucy, you'll soon be mine!
 
CHORUS
                 G
Well, cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
       G
That's what Miss Lucy said
           D
Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
     A                D
It's you that I wanna wed
 
SOLO
Cadd9   G/B   G/B (2x hammer on C) Dsus2       x4
 
VERSE 3
    D
But Shorty wasn't worried
            D
There was a smile upon his face
           A
'Cause old Lucy had fixed the race
    D
And just like that old story
          G
About the turtle and the hare
     D
When Dan crossed over the finish line
   A                    D
He found Shorty waiting there
 
CHORUS (x2)
           G
Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
       G
That's what Miss Lucy said
           D
Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across
     A                D
It's you that I wanna wed
 
OUTRO
Cadd9   G/B   G/B (2x hammer on C)  Dsus2
Oh yeah,      It's you I wanna wed.
 
Cadd9   G/B   G/B (2x hammer on C)  Dsus2 (x3)
