CUT ACROSS SHORTY
written by Marijohn Wilkin
performed by Eddie Cochran
tab transcribed by Collins Crapo 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/eddie_cochran/cut_across_shorty_crd.html ]
C / / / 2 / / / 3 / /
Now a country boy called Shorty
      F
And a city boy named Dan
       C
Had to prove who could win the fastest
   D7              G
To win Miss Lucy's hand
    C
Now Dan had all the money
       F
And he also had the looks
    C
But Shorty must've had somethin', 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!"

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!"
