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
