The Lyrics

For seven years, she's been a' waitin'
She's an awful lotta' girly
So, that's how long it takes for matin'
You see..
Across The Wide Miss Shirley
A whale, a whale, a-ree
Across The Wide Miss Shirley

Seven years, I been a' roamin'
Searchin through those peaks and valleys
It sure looks like Cheyenne, Wyomin'
To me..
Or twenty Kirstie Alleys
A whale, a whale, a-ree
Across The Wide Miss Shirley

Another dawn, my bodies breakin'
Every day I get up early
There must be love, somewhere for takin'
By me..
Across The Wide Miss Shirley
A whale, a whale, a-ree
Across The Wide Miss Shirley...
