John Michael Montgomery — Sold (The Grundy County Auction Incident) lyrics

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! Won't you gimme a sign?
I'd give anything to make you mine, all mine,
I'll do your biddin' and be at your beck and call."
Yeah I've never seen anyone lookin' so fine,
Man I gotta have her, she's a one of a kind.
I'm goin' once, 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, blond hair, blue eyes
And I'm about to bid my heart good-bye!

Well, the auctioneer was goin' 'bout a mile a minute.
He was taking bids and callin' them out loud.
And I guess I was really gettin' in it,
'Cause I just shouted out above the crowd!

And I said, "Hey pretty lady! Won't you gimme a sign?
I'd give anything to make you mine, all mine,
I'll do your biddin' and be at your beck and call."
Yeah I've never seen anyone lookin' so fine,
Man I gotta have her, she's a one of a kind.
I'm goin' once, goin' twice,
I'm sold to the lady in the long black dress,
Well she won my heart, it was no contest.
With her ruby red lips, blond hair, blue eyes
Well I'm about to bid my heart good-bye!

Yeah, we found love on the auction block and I hauled her heart away.
Now we still love to laugh about, the way we met that day!

When I said "Hey pretty lady! Won't you gimme a sign?
I'd give anything to make you mine, all mine,
I'll do your biddin' and be at your beck and call."
Yeah I've never seen anyone lookin' so fine,
Man I gotta have her, she's a one of a kind.
I'm goin' once, 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, blond hair, blue eyes
And I'm about to bid my heart good-bye!
