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

#1.
C                      
Now a country boy called Shorty and a 
F
city boy named Dan,
       C
had to prove who could run the fastest 
   D7              G
to win miss Lucy's hand.
    C                            F
Now Dan had all the money and he also 

had the looks.
    C            
But Shorty must have had something, boys, 
     G7                C
that can't be found in books.

CHORUS:
                  F
Well, 'Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across.'
       C
That's what miss Lucy said.
            F
'Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across..
     G7          C
it's you I wanna wed.

#2.
     C                           F
Now, Dan had been in training, a week before 

the race.
   C                                  D7
He made up his mind ol' Shorty, would end 
          G
in second place.
    C           
And Dan with his long legs a-flyin' left 
F
Shorty far behind.
    C          
And Shorty heard him holler out..
      G7                   C
'Miss Lucy, you'll soon be mine!'

CHORUS:
                  F
Well, 'Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across.'
       C
That's what miss Lucy said.
            F
'Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across..
     G7          C
it's you I wanna wed.

#3.
    C                                  F
But Shorty wasn't worried, there was a smile 

upon his face.
   C
He knew that he was a-goin' to win,
      D7                 G
cause Lucy had fixed the race.
    C                                   F
And just like that old story, about the turtle 

and the hare.
     C                    
When Dan crossed over the finish line,
   G7                   C
he found Shorty waiting there.

CHORUS:
                  F
Well, 'Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across.'
       C
That's what miss Lucy said.
            F
'Cut across Shorty, Shorty, cut across..
     G7          C
it's you I wanna wed...

OUTRO:
     G7          C         G7          C
It's you I wanna wed..it's you I wanna wed.(Fade.)


A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
