Merle Travis did this song.

Fat Gal was the name

Warm in the winter, shady in the summer time.
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine.

FAT GAL

by Merle Travis

She keeps me warm in the Winter,
Chilly in the Summertime;
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine!

And when I see my landlord,
There's so much of her to hide behind;
You wouldn't pay rent if your time was spent like mine!

Now she's so sweet with the softest heart;
She's pretty soft around other parts,
And at night when I lay me down,
I don't need a piller when she's around.

Warm in the Winter,
Shady in the Summertime;
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine!

Now when she's tickled,
So much of her has the biggest time;
I tell all my jokes to that fat gal of mine.

She's never fickle;
You better put your name on the dotted line,
First time you meet with with a big fat gal like mine!

This hard-time talk don't trouble me;
I keep as happy as a honeybee;
If things get rough and times get hard,
I'll render my gal and sell the lard.

Warm in the Winter,
Shady in the Summertime;
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine!

Now she's my shelter in the time of storm;
I helter-skelter right under her arm.
She's a beauty if you look at her face,
And you shouldn't be a-lookin' any other place!

Warm in the Winter,
Shady in the Summertime;
That's what I like about that fat gal of mine!
