The lyrics to this song are quite absurd, falling into the be-careful-what-you-wish-for category. The song is from the point of view of a man whom women find irresistible. I have transcribed the fiddle part behind the whole song, which consists of a fiddle intro, backup behind vocals, fiddle break, backup behind vocals, and a fiddle outro. There were actually two fiddles in the recording, but they mostly played in unison. Beware of the two extra beats in the verse.
