About "PRETTIEST GIRL IN TOWN"

Her name was actually Carrie Snodgrass and she worked at Gibsons but there was really a lady at the lumber yard named Sally and that seemed a lot more romantic to me and Sally agreed.

Open E tuning - EBEGBE

She wears a snake skin 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 my grass. Threads my 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 ask her for directions just to see her walk.
She lives right up my alley and I know that her life is hard.

and she’s working at the lumber yard.

She carries a tradition so her shoulders must be strong
But that don’t maker 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 ask her for directions just to see her walk.
She lives right up my alley and I know that her life is hard.

I always walk in casual. Act like I don’t care.
but I don’t go in on Tuesday because 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…

Dut en du du…She lives right up my alley and I know that her life is hard.
