Now a country boy called Shorty
And a city boy named Dan

To win miss Lucy's hand
Now Dan had all the money
And he also had the looks
But Shorty must have had something, boys
That can't be found in books

Well, a-cut across shorty, shorty cut across
That's what miss Lucy said
Cut across shorty, shorty cut across

That's what miss Lucy said
Cut across shorty, shorty cut across
It's you I want to wed

But shorty wasn't worried
