Fun, blue-grassy, banjo-tastic song. As I recall, this was actually true at one point in my life!

Lyrics

I've known a lot of women
- and been close to quite a few
for a year, for a month . . .
or for just an hour or two
But they all have things in commong
and it's kind of strange, you see . . .
Because they marry the man they meet right after me

Chorus
So, if you want to get married
and if you have a dime . . .
just give me a cal
(if you think you've got the time)
'cause I ain't your someone special
but this a guarantee
you will marry the man you meet right after me!

Now I knew a girl
down in Colorado way
The sweetest little thang
(or at least that's what they say)
But I'll tell ya I know better
'Cause I could plainly see
A ring on her finger when she walked out on me!

Chorus
So, if you want to get married
and if you have a dime . . .
just give me a cal
(if you think you've got the time)
'cause I ain't your someone special
but this a guarantee
you will marry the man you meet right after me!

Now I knew a girl
Way down in Tuscon Town
The seetest little thang
That you'll ever see around
But - the night that I proposed
That she and I should wed
She told me she'd married my ex-best-friend instead!

Chorus
So, if you want to get married
and if you have a dime . . .
just give me a cal
(if you think you've got the time)
'cause I ain't your someone special
but this a guarantee
you will marry the man you meet right after me!
