INTRO: A D A E A D A E
Well, I went down to the Grundy County Auction
Where I saw somethin' I just had to have
My mind said I should proceed with caution
A E A (stop)
But my heart said "Go ahead an' make a bid on that!"
An' I said, hey, pretty lady, won'cha gi'me a sign
Id' give anything to make you mine all mine
D E A
I'll do your biddin' an' be at your beckon call
Yeah, I never seen anyone lookin' so fine
Man, I gotta have her, she' a one-of-a-kind
I'm goin' once, goin' twice,
A (second time go to *)
I'm sold! On the lady in the seccond row
She's an eight, she's a nine, she's a ten, I know
She's got ruby-red lips, blond hair, blue eyes
A A D A E (play 2x)
An' I'm about to bid my heart good-bye!
Well the auctioneer was goin' about a mile a minute
He was takin' bids an' callin' them out loud
An' I guess I was really gettin' in it
A E A (stop)
'Cause I just shouted out above the crowd!
I'm sold! On the lady in the long black dress
Well, she won my heart it was no contest
With her ruby-red lips, blond hair, blue eyes
A A D A E (1x only)
I'm about to bid my heart good-bye!
Yeah, we found love on the auction block
An' I hauled her heart away
Now we still love to laugh about
The way we met that day
