THE AUCTIONEER
LEROY VAN DYKE

CAPO 1

Hey well alright, Sir, here we, go there,and what're ya gonna give for em...
I'm bid 25 will ya gimmie 30, make it thirty, bid it to buy 'em at 30 dollars
on 'er will ya gimmie 30, now 5, who would bid it at five, make it five, 
five bid and now 45 dollars on 'er to buy 'em there...

     A             A7           D
There was a boy in Arkansas who wouldn't listen to his ma
     E7                                  A
When she told him that he should go to school.
     A                  A7               D
He'd sneak away in the afternoon, take a little walk and pretty soon
      E7                            A
You'd find him at the local auction barn.
D                                         A
He'd stand and he'd listen carefully then pretty soon he began to see
        B7                            E7
How the auctioneer could talk so rapidly.
   A                  A7             D
He said, "Oh my, it's do or die I've got to learn that auction cry
      E7                           A
Gotta make my mark and be an auctioneer"


 A                    A7                     D7
25 dollar bid an' now 30 dollar, 30 will you gimmie' 30 
                                           E7
Make it 30, bi-di-di-bom a 30 dollar, will you gimmie' 30 
                             A
Who-da-da-bi-di-da 30 dollar bid?
A7                                        D7
30 dollar bid an' now 35, will you gimmie 35 
                     
To make it a 35, to bi-di-da 35, 
E7                                  A
Who would a bid it at a 35 dollar bid?


   A               A7                D
As time went on he did his best and all could see he didn't jest,
   E7                                    A
He practiced callin' bids both night and day.
    A                         A7
His pop would find him behind the barn,
     D
Just working up an awful storm,
      E7                         A
As he tried to imitate the auctioneer.
         C                            A
Then his pop said, "Son we just can't stand to have a mediocre man, 
         B7                              E7
Sellin' things at auction using our good name.
     A               A7              D
I'll send you off to auction school then you'll be nobody's fool
E7                                A
You can take your place among the best"


 A                    A7                     D7
35 dollar bid an' now 40 dollar, 40 will you gimmie' 40 
                                           E7
Make it 40, bi-di-di-bom a 40 dollar, will you gimmie' 40 
                             A
Who-da-da-bi-di-da 40 dollar bid?
A7                                        D7
40 dollar bidder, now 45, will you gimmie 45 

To make it a 45, to bi-di-da 45, 
E7                              A
Who will bid it at a 45 dollar bid?


   A                 A7
So from that boy who went to school, 
      D
There grew a man who played it cool,
   E7                                  A
He came back home a full fledged auctioneer.
 A                        A7
Then the people came from miles around,
        D
Just to hear him make that rhythmic sound,
     E7                                    A       D
That filled their hearts with such a happy cheer.
                                       A
then his fame spread out from shore to shore, 

He had all he could do and more,
B7                         E7
had to buy a plane to get around.
    A                A7
Now he's the tops in all the land, 
      D
Let's pause and give that man a hand,
E7                             A
He's the best hillbilly auctioneer.


 A                    A7                      D7
45 dollar bid an' now 50 dollar, 50  will you gimmie' 50 
                                           E7
Make it 50, bi-di-di-bom a 50 dollar, will you gimmie' 50 
                               A
Who-da-da-bi-di-da 50 dollar bid?
A7                                        D7
50 dollar bidder, now 55, will he give me 55 
      
To make it a 55, to bi-di-da 55, 
  E7                            A
I sold that hog for a 50 dollar bid.
