A                            D
Mary Anne and Wanda were the best of friends
A                             E
All through their high school days
A                   D
Both members of the 4H club 
     A             E A 
Both active in the FFA
A                D                              
After graduation Mary Anne went lookin' 
A                E
For a bright new world
A                D
Wanda looked all around this town
    A       E         A  
And all she found was Earl

        A                      D
Well it wasn't two weeks after she got married that
A                      E
Wanda started gettin' abused
           A                D
She put on dark glasses and long sleeved blouses
    A          E       A
And make up to cover a bruise
         A                        D
Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce
    A                        E
She let the law take it from there
    A                                 D
But Earl walked right through that restraining order
    A            E       A
And put her in intensive care

      F#m                 E 
Right away Mary Anne flew in from Atlanta
     D                A
On a red eye midnight flight
    F#m                       E
She held Wanda's hand as they worked out a plan
       D                         E
And it didn't take 'em long to decide

                 A      D   A    E   D
That Earl had to die         Goodbye Earl
               A      D               A            E     D      A
You're feelin' weak     why don't you lay down and sleep Earl

    A               D
The cops came by to bring Earl in
     A                           E
They searched the house high and low
          A                          D
Then they tipped their hats and said thank you ladies
       A             E      A
If you hear from him let us know
         A                 D
Well the weeks went by and spring turned to summer
    A                 E
And summer faded into fall
       A                  D
And it turns out he was a missing person
     A      E         A
That nobody missed at all

       F#m                          E
So the girls bought some land and a roadside stand
       D         A
Out on Highway 109
          F#m               E
They sell Tennessee ham and strawberry jam
         D                       E
And they don't lose any sleep at night

                  A      D   A    E   D
Cause Earl had to die         Goodbye Earl
          A      D         A          E    D
We need a break.  Let's go out to the lake Earl
             A      D            A        E     D
We'll pack a lunch.    Stuff you into the trunk Earl
                 A      D            A        E    D          A
Well is that all right.   Good let's go for a ride Earl.  Hey!
