NOTE: The rhythm patterns are difficult, hence why the numbers are included.  
I believe this tab is mostly accurate, the only questionable part being 
the (pre)ending strum pattern]

Lyrics

[Verse 1]

F#                  A   F#    A   F#
Put on that dress - I'm going out dancing
F#                  B      F#       B        F#       
Starting off red  - clean and sparkling he'll see me
F#                                          
Music playing make it dreamy for dancing - 
A       F#             A         F#
must be a way that I can dress to please him
F#                                               
It's hard to walk in the dress, it's not easy - 
B          F#          B        F#      
I'm spilling over like a heavy loaded fruit tree

[Verse 2]

F#                 A   F#     A     F#
It's sad to see - lonely all this lonely
F#                 B        F#         B          F#  
Close up my eyes - dreamy dreamy music make it be alright
F#                                     
Music play make it good for romacing - 
A        F#         A        F#
must be a way I can dress to please him
F#                                       
Swing and sway everything'll be alright - 
B        F#         B          F#  
but it's feeling so damn tight tonight

[Verse 3]

F#                                    
Filthy tight, the dress is filthy - 
A        F#         A       F# 
I'm falling flat and my arms are empty
F#                                              
Clear the way better get it out of this room - 
B       F#       B       F#
a falling woman in dancing costume

[Chorus]

B
If you put it on
A               F#
If you put it on 
B
If you put it on 
G               F#
If you put it on

[Interlude]

 A   F#    A       A  F#  A
"You purdy thang," My man says, 
 A     F#     A   A         F# A
"But I bought you beautiful dresses."
