Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident)
by John Michael Montgomery



Well i went down to the Grundy County Auction,
where I saw something i just had to have,
my mind told me i should proceed with caution,
but my heart said go ahead and make a bid on that.

And i said hey pretty lady wont you give me your sign
I'd give anything to make you mine all mine,
I'll do your bidding and be at your beckin call
Yeah i aint never seen anyone lookin so fine,
man i gatta have her, shes a one of a kind
Im goin once, goin twice,

Im sold to lady in the second row,
Shes an eight, shes a nine, shes a ten I know
shes got ruby red lips, blond hair, blue eyes
and im about to bid my heart goodbye

Well the auctioneer was goin about a mile a minute,
he was takin bids and callin them out loud,
and i guess i was really gettin in it,
cause i just shouted out above the croud.

And i said hey pretty lady wont you give me a your sign
Id give anything to make you mine all mine,
I'll do your biddin and be at your beckin call
yeah i aint never seen anyone lookin so fine,
man i gatta have her shes a one of a kind,
I'm goin once, goin twice

Im sold to the lady in the long black dress,
cause she won my heart it was no contest,
with the ruby red lips, blonde hair, blue eyes,
well im about to bid my heart goodbye

Yeah we found love on the auction block
and i hauled her heart away
and we still love to laughed about the way we met that day

when i said hey pretty lady wont you give me your sign
i'd give anything to make you mine all mine
I'll do your biddin and be at your beckin call
yeah i aint never seen anyone lookin so fine
man i gatta have her shes a one of a kind
im goin once, goin twice

Im sold to the lady in the second row
shes an eight shes a nine shes a ten nine oh
shes got ruby red lips blonde hair blue eyes
well im about to bid my heart goodbye
