Cut Across Shorty
Eddie Cochran

Now a country boy called Shorty
And a city boy named Dan
Had to prove who could run the fastest
To win Miss Lucy's hand
Now Dan had all the money
And he also had the looks
But Shorty musta had somethin', boys,
That can't be found in books

"Well, cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across"
That's what Miss Lucy said
"Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across;
It's you I wanna wed"

Now Dan had been in trainin'
A week before the race
He made up his mind ol' Shorty
Would end in second place
And Dan with his long legs a-flyin'
Left Shorty far behind
And Shorty heard him holler out
"Miss Lucy, you'll soon be mine!"

"Well, cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across"...

But Shorty wasn't worried
There was a smile upon his face
He knew that he was going to win
'Cause Lucy had fixed the race
And just like that old story
About the turtle and the hare
When Dan crossed over the finish line
He found Shorty waitin' there

"Well, cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across"...
