                Carroll County Accident
By Porter Wagoner


C                                       G
Carroll County's pointed out as kind of square
    G                                 C
The biggest thing that happens is the county fair
  C                                          G
I guess that's why we thought it such a big event
     G                          C
What we call the Carroll County accident

    C                                         G
The wreck was on the highway just inside the line
G                                       C 
Walter Browning lost his life and for a time
   C                                         G
It seemed that Mary Ellen Jones would surely die
    G                                C
But she lived long enough for her to testify
C                           G     
Walter Browning was a happy married man
       G                            C
And he wore a golden wedding ring upon his hand
    C                             G    
But it was gone, nobody knew just where it went
   G                             C 
He lost it in the Carroll County accident


D                            A
Mary Ellen testified that he flagged her down
     A                                   D
Said he was sick and could she drive him into town
   D                                  A
No one even doubted what she said was true
       A                             D 
'Cause she was well respected in the county too
  D                               A  
I went down to see the wreck like all the rest
    A                                   D
The bloody seats, the broken glass, the tangled mess
    D                                 A
But I found something no one else had even seen
A                                  D
Behind the dash in Mary's crumpled up machine


  E                                    B7
A little match box circled by a rubber band
    B7                                     E
And inside the ring from Walter Browning's hand
   E                              B7 
It took awhile to figure out just what it meant
    B7                             E
The truth about the Carroll County accident
   E                                  B7
By dark of night I dropped the ring into a well
    B7                              E 
And took a sacred oath that I would never tell
    E                              B7
The truth about the Carroll County accident
          B7                          E
Cause the County ordered dad a marble monument
       B7                             E
Yes, I lost him in the Carroll County accident
