DIXIE CHICKS lyrics : "Goodbye Earl"

Mary Anne and Wanda were the best of friends
All through thier high school days
Both members of the 4H club

Both active in the FFA
After graduation Mary Anne went out lookin'
for a bright new world

Wanda looked all around this town
And all she found was Earl

Well it wasn't two weeks
After she got married that

Wanda started gettin' abused
She put on dark glasses and long sleeved blouses
And make up to cover a bruise

Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce
She let the law take it from there
But Earl walked right through that restraining order

And put her in intensive care
Right away Mary Anne flew in from Atlanta
On a red eye midnight flight

She held Wanda's hand as they
Worked out a plan
And it didn't take 'em long to decide

That Earl had to die

Goodbye Earl
Those black-eyed peas
They tasted all right to me Earl

You're feelin' weak
Why don't you lay down
And sleep Earl

Ain't it dark
Wrapped up in that tarp Earl

The cops came by to bring Earl in They searched the house
High and low

Then they tipped their hats
And said "thank you ladies if you hear from him let us know"
Well the weeks went by and

Spring turned to Summer
And Summer faded into Fall
And it turns out he was a missing person

Who nobody missed at all
So the girls bought some land
And a roadside stand

Out on Highway 109
They sell Tennessee ham
And strawberry jam

And they don't
Lose any sleep at night 'cause
Earl had to die

Goodbye Earl

We need a break
Let's go out to the lake Earl
We'll pack a lunch

And stuff you in the trunk Earl
Well is that all right
Good Let's go for a ride

Earl Hey
