BUTTONS AND BOWS From the film "The Paleface" (1948) (Jay Livingston / Ray Evans - Won Academy Award for "Best Song") Bob Hoope - 1948 Dinah Shore - 1948 The Dinning Sisters - 1948 Betty Garrett - 1948 Betty Jane Rhodes - 1948 Evelyn Knight - 1948 Gene Autry - 1948 Eddie Fisher - 1955 Ray Conniff Singers - 1959 Connie Francis - 1962 The Bropwns - 1965 David Grisman - 1999 Michael Feinstein & Jay Livingstone - 2001 Also recorded by: Vaughn Monroe; Tommy Bruce; Clark Sisters; Tak Sindo. East is east and west is west And the wrong one I have chose Let's go where they keep on wearin' Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows Rings and things and buttons and bows. Don't bury me in this prairie Take me where the cement grows Let's move down to some big town Where they love a gal by the cut o' her clothes And you'll stand out, in buttons and bows. I'll love you in buckskin Or skirts that you've homespun But I'll love ya' longer, stronger Where yer friends don't tote a gun My bones denounce the buckboard bounce And the cactus hurts my toes Let's vamoose where gals keep a-usin' Those silks and satins and linen that shows And I'm all yours in buttons and bows. Gimme eastern trimmin' where women are women In high silk hose and peek-a-boo clothes And French perfume that rocks the room And I'm all yours in buttons and bows. Buttons and bows, buttons and bows..... ***** Lyric variation as recorded by Dinah Shore: SPOKEN:A western ranch is just a branch of Nowhere Junction to me. Give me the city where living's pretty and the gals wear finery. East is east and west is west And the wrong one I have chose Let's go where I'll keep on wearin' Those frills and flowers and buttons and bows Rings and things and buttons and bows Don't bury me in this prairie Take me where the cement grows Let's move down to some big town Where they love a gal by the cut o' her clothes And I'll stand out In buttons and bows I'll love you in buckskin Or skirts that I've homespun But I'll love ya' longer, stronger where Yer friends don't tote a gun My bones denounce the buckboard bounce And the cactus hurts my toes Let's vamoose where gals keep usin' Those silks and satins and linen that shows And I'm all yours in buttons and bows Gimme eastern trimmin' where women are women In high silk hose and peek-a-boo clothes And French perfume that rocks the room And I'm all yours in buttons and bows (Contributed by Nancy - July 2003)
