Prettiest Town in Dixie

Prettiest Town in Dixie (no MP3 available)

The sign on this hotel room wall says
Prettiest Town in Dixie
Well it don’t look so pretty to me
My baby has left town
My baby let me down
And I’ve had all the southern comfort I can stand
Yeah I’ve had all the southern comfort I can stand

Chorus:
Pretty is as pretty does
And I’m doing pretty bad
Pretty took what she wanted now pretty’s gone
So I sit in this hotel room
In a town where I don’t belong
And wonder where it all went wrong
I wonder where it all went wrong

I heard somebody say that beauty’s
In the eye of the beholder
Well you know I’ve held myself a few
I’ve never found a woman
Who could take away my blues
And I’ve had all the southern comfort I can stand
Yeah I’ve had all the southern comfort I can stand

Bridge:
Beauty is a funny thing
If you know what I mean
They say it’s only skin deep
But the skin is all you ever see
And I’ve seen all I need to see
And I’ve seen all I need to see

The sign on this hotel room wall says
Check out time is noon
Guess I’ll be leaving soon
It won’t be soon enough
Thank you very much
I’ve had all the southern comfort I can stand
Yeah I’ve had all the southern comfort I can stand

Chorus:
Pretty is as pretty does
And I’m doing pretty bad
Pretty took what she wanted now pretty’s gone
So I sit in this hotel room
In a town where I don’t belong
And wonder where it all went wrong
I wonder where it all went wrong
