Debutante Ball (Willie Tyson) Get your gold lame slippers from the closet The ones your mama bought for you today Get that lavender chiffon thing you wanted I can't believe the price I had to pay Get dressed up like a queen now And don't forget them fancy pearls Meet me directly in the hall I'm taking my fine bred Southern daughter girl Out to the debutante ball The Debutante Ball is my favorite function It happens every year about this time It coincides with our local cattle auction The best breeding stock in the county all in a line I run back and forth between the auction and the ball Thinkin', "Sherwood, ain't you lucky, ain't you fine The best cows on four legs and the prettiest gals on two Ain't nobody else's but mine" Get your gold lame halter from the tack room The one you won all them ribbons in last spring You been a winner in your time, old Red Satin But since you had them three calves you ain't won a thing Brush up your hide now and don't forget to trim your hooves Leave behind you a clean stall I'm gonna drop you off at the cattle auction On my way to the Debutante Ball This year's ball is quite a splendid occasion I feel it in my bones, it's gonna be fine I'm standing here in great anticipation As the time nears for my little girl to walk the line What's this I see, Clompin' up to me Stompin' and sheddin' all over the hall? My God, it's Red Satin, how, how, how, how could this have happened? It's my cow at the Debutante ball printed in Here's to the Women SOF
