Rod Stewart - Cut Across Shorty MTV Unplugged(1993)
Original: by Eddie Cochran (1959)
Chords by JDoubleOP

Intro:
Cadd9   G/B   G/B(2x hammer on C) Dsus2     4x 

#1.
D                      
Now a country boy named Shorty  

And a city boy named Dan,

had to prove who could run the fastest 
   E              A
to win miss Lucy's hand.
    D                            G
Now Dan had all the money 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.
       
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       1x

#2.
     D                           
Now, Dan had been in training

About a week before the race
                                      E
He made up his mind ol' Shorty, would end 
          A
in second place.
    D           
And Dan with his long legs a-flyin' he left 
G
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
       
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       4x


#3.
    D                                  
But Shorty wasn't worried, 

there was a smile upon his face.

          E                  A
cause old Lucy had fixed the race.
    D                                   G
And just like that old story, about the turtle 

and the hare.
     D                    
When Dan crossed over the finish line,
   A                    D
he found Shorty waiting there.

CHORUS 2x:
           G
Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across.
       
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   
O yeah,       It's you I wanna wed.
   
Cadd9   G/B   G/B(2x hammer on C)  Dsus2 (3x)

Any suggestion on the chords structure? On 1st position ordinary chords it comes out quite dull.
