TEX WILLIAMS Auctioneer Song Lyrics
Well right boys, open the gates and let `em walk right i-in

Well there was a boy in Arkansas who wouldn`t listen to his Ma
When she told him that he should go to schoo-ool
He`d sneak away in the afternoon, take a little walk and pretty soon
You`d find him at the local auction barn
He`d stand and listen carefully and pretty soon he began to see
How the auctioneer could talk so rapidly
Well it`s me oh my, it`s do or die, I`ve just got to learn that auction cry
Gonna make my mark and be an auctioneer

Twenty-five dollar bid, now who will give me thirty dollar
Will you make it thirty dollar, give me thirty dollar
Oh who will give me a thirty dollar bi-id
Got a thirty dollar bid, now who will make it thirty-five
Will you give me thirty five, make it thirty-five
Oh who will give me a thirty-five dollar bi-id

That stockman only did his best, all to see he couldn`t get
He practiced calling it both night and day-ay
Half the time he`s behind the barn workin` up an awful roar
As he tried to imitate the auctioneer
And his pap said, son, we just can`t stand to have a mediocre man
Selling things at auction using our good name
So pack you off to auction school and there you`ll be nobody`s fool
And you can take your place among the fame

Thirty-five dollar bid, now who will give me forty dollar
Will you give me forty dollar, make it forty dollar
Oh who will give me a forty dollar bi-id
Got a forty dollar bid, now who will give me forty-five
Will you give me forty-five, make it forty-five
Oh who will give me a forty-five dollar bi-id

Well from that boy that went to school there came a man who played it cool
He came back home a full fledged auctioneer-eer
And the people
