      About "Auctioneer"

      Lyrics for Leroy Van Dyke - "Auctioneer"

      There was a boy in Arkansas who wouldn't listen to his ma
      When she told him that he should go to school
      He'd sneak away in the afternoon, take a little walk and pretty soon
      You'd find him at the local auction barn

      Well he'd stand and listen carefully then pretty soon he began to see
      How the auctioneer could talk so rapidly
      He said, "Oh my it's do or die I've got to learn that auction cry
      Gotta make my mark and be an auctioneer"

      25 dollar 30 now 30 dollar 30 dollar
      30 dollar 30 dollar give me a hollar 30 dollar
      who will bid it at a 35 dollar bid?
      35 dollar 35 35 make it 35 and a 35 make it 35 and a 35
      Who will bid it at a 35 dollar bid?

      As time went on he did his best and all could see he didn't jest
      He practied on and then some night and day
      His pappy'd find him behind the barn just a workin up an awful storm
      As he tried to imitate the auctioneer

      Said his pappy, "Son we just can't stand a havin' a mediocre man,
      You gotta take that auction usin' our good name.
      I'll send you off to auction school and then you'll be nobody's fool
      You can take your place among the best"

      35 dollar 40 now 40 dollar 40 dollar
      40 dollar 40 dollar give me a hollar 40 dollar
      Who will bid it at at a 40 dollar bid?
      40 dollar 45 45 will you make it 45 give me 45 and a 45
      Who will bid it at a 45 dollar bid?

      So from that morning he went to school there grew a man who played it cool
      He came back home a full fledged auctioneer
      And people came from miles around just to hear him make that rhythmic sound
      That filled their hearts with such a happy cheer

      His fame reached out from shore to shore he had all he could do and more
      He had to buy a plane to get around
      Now he's the tops in all the land so let's all give that man a hand
      He's the best of all the auctioneers

      45 dollar 50 now 50 dollar 50 dollar
      50 dollar 50 dollar give me a hollar 50 dollar
      Who will bid it at a 50 dollar bill?
      50 dollar 55 55 make it 55 and a 55 make it 55 and
      Sold that horse for a 50 dollar bill
