This is probably the most famous Dixie chicks song. this is thone one where they murder
an abusive husband. Where was CSI on this one?

C                            F
Mary Anne and Wanda were the best of friends
C                             G
All through thier high school days
C                   F
Both members of the 4H club 
     C             G C 
Both active in the FFA
C                     F              C                              
After graduation Mary Anne went out lookin' 
for a bright new world
C                F
Wanda looked all around this town
    C       G         C  
And all she found was Earl
Well it wasn't two weeks
After she got married that
C                     G
Wanda started gettin' abused
           C                F
She put on dark glasses and long sleeved blouses
    C          G       C
And make up to cover a bruise
C                                 F
Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce
C                            G
She let the law take it from there
    C                                F
But Earl walked right through that restraining order
    C              G       C
And put her in intensive care
     Am                   G 
Right away Mary Anne flew in from Atlanta
     F                C
On a red eye midnight flight
She held Wanda's hand as they
Worked out a plan
       F                        G
And it didn't take 'em long to decide
                 C   F  C
That Earl had to die
    G   F
                 C    F   C
Those black-eyed peas
                         G   F
They tasted all right to me Earl
               C      F   C
You're feelin' weak
Why don't you lay down
And sleep Earl
         C   F   C
Ain't it dark
                   G    F    C  F   C  F
Wrapped up in that tarp Earl
C                   F
The cops came by to bring Earl in
They searched the house
High and low
Then they tipped thier hats 
          F                       C             G      C
And said "thank you ladies if you hear from him let us know"
Well the weeks went by and 
Spring turned to Summer
C                     G
And Summer faded into Fall
       C                  F
And it turns out he was a missing person
    C        G
Who nobody missed at all
So the girls bought some land
And a roadside stand
F              C
Out on Highway 109
They sell Tennessee ham
And strawberry jam
And they don't 
Lose any sleep at night 'cause
            C  F   C
Earl had to die
   G    F
We need a break
F        C             G   F
Let's go out to the lake Earl
             C  F  C
We'll pack a lunch
                     G     F
And stuff you in the trunk Earl
                 C    F    C
Well is that all right
                    G       F
Good Let's go for a ride
C    F     C    G     F       C
Earl Hey
