C That's what Miss Lucy said F "Cut across, Shorty, Shorty, cut across; G7 C It's you I wanna wed!" Verse 2: Now Dan had been in trainin' A week before the race He made up his mind ol' Shorty Would end in 2nd 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!" (chorus) Verse 3: But Shorty wasn't worried There was a smile upon his face He knew that he was gonna 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 (chorus) (repeat and fade): G7 C "It's you I wanna wed!"
