Song Description

bashful farm boy frequently visits lumberyard hoping someday to come up with the courage to ask the pretty girl who works there for a date.

Lyrics

THE PRETTIEST GIRL IN TOWN
She wears a snakeskin belt that says "SALLY"
And she's working at the lumber yard
I know you're thinking, "With a job like that,
The lady must be hard."
She cuts that glass. . .Threads that pipe
She really knows her way around
And somehow, underneath it all
She's THE PRETTIEST GIRL IN TOWN
I ask her questions just to hear her talk
(I love the way she talk)
Ask her for directions just to see her walk
(I love the way she walk)
I'd ask her out for catfish
But the words just come too hard
The prettiest girl in Mansfield, Texas
And she's working at the lumber yard

She carries a tradition so her shoulders must be strong
But that don't make her manly, so don't you get me wrong
She cuts that glass. . .Threads that pipe
They say she packs a gun
And somehow underneath it all
She's her daddy's only son

I ask her questions just to hear her talk
(I love the way she talk)
Ask her for directions just to see her walk
(I love the way she walk)
I'd ask her out for Fried Chicken
But the words just come too hard
The prettiest girl in Mansfield, Texas
And she's working at the lumber yard


I always walk in casual
Act like I don't even care
But I don't go in on Tuesday
'cause Sally won't be there
To cut my glass. . .Thread my pipe
Show this boy around
And somehow underneath it all be
THE PRETTIEST GIRL IN TOWN
I ask her questions just to hear her talk
(I love the way she talk)
Ask her for directions just to see her walk
(I love the way she walk)
I'd ask her out for Bar-B-Q
But the words just come too hard
She's the prettiest girl in Mansfield, Texas
And she's working at the lumber yard
