Sons of the Desert - Goodbye Earl (Live)

Intro - G - C - G - D - C = 2x's

(verse 1)
G                            C
Mary Ann and Wanda were the best of friends,
G                             D
All through thier high school days,
G                   C
Both members of the 4H club, 
     G             D   G 
Both active in the F.F.A.

(verse 2)
G                     C              G                              
After graduation Mary Ann went out lookin,
for a bright new world,
G                C
Wanda looked all around this town,
     G       D         G - C
And all she found was Earl,

(verse 3)
Well it wasn't two weeks,
After she got married that,
G                     D
Wanda started gettin' abused,
           G                C
She put on dark glasses and long sleeved blouses,
    G          D       G
And make up to cover a bruise,

(verse 4)
G                                 C
Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce,
G                            D
She let the law take it from there,
    G                                C
But Earl walked right through that restraining order,
    G              D       G - C - G - C
And put her in intensive care,

     Em                  D 
Right away Mary Ann flew in from Atlanta,
      C                G
On a red eye midnight flight,
She held Wanda's hand as they,
Worked out a plan,
       C                        D
And it didn't take 'em long to decide,
                  G - C - G
That Earl had to die,

    D   C                       G - C  
Goodbye Earl, Those black-eyed peas,
             G           D   C
They tasted all right to me Earl,
         G  -  C   
feelin' weak,
              G               D    C      
Why don't you lay down, And sleep Earl,
           G - C  
Ain't it dark,
         G          D    C  - G - C - G - C
Wrapped up in that tarp Earl,

(verse 5 **Key Change**)
A                   D
The cops came by to bring Earl in,
          A                           E
And they searched the house high and low,
Then they tipped thier hats, 
          D                       A             E      A
And said "thank you ladies if you hear from him let us know",

(verse 6)
Well the weeks went by and, 
Spring turned to Summer,
A                     E7
And Summer faded into Fall,
       A                 D
And it turns out he's a missing person,
 A ( stop    music ) - D - A - D
nobody missed at all,

       F#m                            E
So the girls bought some land, and a roadside stand
D                     A
Out on Highway One O' Nine,
          F#m                 E
They sell Tennessee ham, and strawberry jam,
         D                         E 
And they don't, lose any sleep at night 'cause,
             A - D - A
Earl had to die,

   E    D                A
Goodbye Earl,we need a break,
D        A             E   D
Let's go out to the lake Earl,
               A - D  
We'll pack a lunch,
           A          E     D
And stuff you in the trunk Earl,
           A  -  D  
Is that alright,
           A         E  
Good Let's go for a ride,
D            A  - D 
Earl Hey HEy HEy,
A    E   D
Goodbye Earl,
Hey HEy HEy,
