The song was Travis' second number one on the Folk Juke Box charts, where it stayed at number one for 14 weeks and a total of 21 weeks on the chart.

Ricky Skaggs covered the song on his 1981 album Waitin' for the Sun to Shine. The song describes a woman through the use of advertising slogans. The slogan "So round, so firm, so fully packed, so free and easy on the draw" was used in the Lucky Strike brand cigarette advertising of the time, first heard in 1944 on the Jack Benny and Your Hit Parade radio programs. "I'd walk a mile" is a slogan for Camel cigarettes. "Just ask the man who owns one" refers to Packard automobiles. "She's got the pause that's so refreshing" is a reference to the Coca-Cola slogan "The Pause that Refreshes".

So round, so firm, so fully packed, that's my gal
So complete, front to back, that's my pal
Toasted by the sun and I'm a son of a gun
She don't make my five o'clock shadow come around at one.

You can bet your boots had walked for miles, through the snow
Just to see her tooth faced smile they mentioned on the radio
If you don't think she's lot of fun just as the man who once wants
So round, so firm, so fully packed, that's my gal.

So round, so firm, so fully packed, she's for me
She's just like a money bag guarantee
Like a barfly goes for drink, like a bobysocks go for Frank
And just like Jesse James, he goes for money in the bank.

From head to foot she's a perfect size, she's a wist
But she wears a forty-five gun that is
She's got a look that's so impressin'
She's got furs that's sorta fashion
So round, so firm, so fully packed, that's my gal...

Merle Travis

Merle Robert Travis (November 29, 1917 – October 20, 1983) was an American country and Western singer, songwriter, and musician born in Rosewood, Kentucky. His lyrics often discussed the life and exploitation of coal miners. Among his many well-known songs are "Sixteen Tons", "Re-Enlistment Blues" and "Dark as a Dungeon". However, it is his masterful guitar playing and his interpretations of the rich musical traditions of his native Muhlenberg County, Kentucky for which he is best known today. "Travis picking", a syncopated style of finger picking, is named after him. He was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1970 and elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1977. more »
