    Hi Johnny
    Thanks for producing this most excellent ZZ Top tune.
    It is a firm favourite of mine I had tried to work out a version of my own but without success.
    When I received your email I just had to have a copy, and now I have.
    Great stuff, and I love the energy of your performance.
    Cheers Jeff

    Clean shirt, new shoes
    And I don’t know where I am goin’ to
    Silk suit, black tie (black tie)
    I don’t need a reason why
    They come runnin’ just as fast as they can
    ‘Cause every girl crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man
    Gold watch, diamond ring
    I ain’t missin’ not a single thing
    Cufflinks, stick pin
    When I step out I’m gonna do you in
    They come runnin’ just as fast as they can
    ‘Cause every girl crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man
    Top coat, top hat
    And I don’t worry ’cause my wallet’s fat
    Black shades, white gloves
    Lookin’ sharp, lookin’ for love
    They come runnin’ just as fast as they can
    ‘Cause every girl crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man

    “Sharp Dressed Man’ is a winner low down Blues. Sounds like a Country Blues found on an old 38 rpm record. Rock and roll blues. Thanks for posting the lyrics Mark and thanks for the music Johnny
