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



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

[Chorus]
And I said
Hey pretty lady why don't you give me a sign
I'd give anything to make you mine o' mine
I'll do your biddin' and be at your beck and call
I've never seen anyone lookin' so fine
Man I got to have her she's a one of a kind
I'm going once, I'm goin' twice, I'm sold

To the lady in the second row
She's an eight, she's a nine, she's a ten, I know
She's got ruby red lips, blonde hair, blue eyes
And I'm about to bid my heart goodbye.

Well the Auctioneer was going 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 crowd

[Chorus]

To the lady in the long black dress
Cause she won my heart it was no contest
With her ruby red lips, blonde hair, blue eyes
Well I'm about to bid my heart goodbye

Yeah, well we found love on the auction block
I throw my heart away
And we love and laugh about the way we met that day

[Chorus]

To the lady in the second row
She's an eight, she's a nine, she's a ten I know
She's got ruby red lips, blonde hair, blue eyes
And I'm about to bid my heart goodbye.

Whooo!
