  • Now the way things look around this town
    Better find a pretty woman before the sun goes down
    If you need a place to lay your head
    Find a pretty little woman in a pretty big bed

    You make like a fool, you stumble around
    Better find you a woman before you buy another round
    In like a lamb and out like a lion
    One minute your laughin' the next you're cryin'

    It's hard to tell, hard to tell
    You gotta get a woman, it's hard to tell
    Can't be sure, can't be sure
    Is she gonna be your pretty little girl?
    Your pretty little girl

    Better cut your hair, comb that mop
    Shine them shoes, wear tails and top
    Trim that 'stache, don't be slow
    You gonna need it where you got to go

    Hit that trail ride that roan
    And buck that limb when you get her back home
    Buckle up boys don’t think twice
    And love that woman with all your might

    It's hard to tell, hard to tell
    You gotta get a woman, it's hard to tell
    Can't be sure, can't be sure
    Is she gonna be your pretty little girl?
    Your pretty little girl

    Now she don't call and she don't write
    You're home with your mother every Saturday night
    You see her on the town, she don't see you
    You oughta quit courtin' and take up booze

    You gotta make it look like a big fortune,
    Got Calico shorts and alligator shoes
    There ain’t no woman gonna waste her time,
    Waiting for a poor boy to drag her down

    It's hard to tell, hard to tell
    You gotta get a woman, it's hard to tell
    Can't be sure, can't be sure
    Is she gonna be your pretty little girl?
    Your pretty little girl
