Dixie Chicks - Goodbye Earl

Printable Version


From "Fly" (1999)

INTRO:  [C]   [F]   [C]   [G]  (x2)

Mary [C]Anne and Wanda were the [F]best of friends
[C]All through thier high school [G]days
[C]Both members of the [F]4H club 
Both [C]active in the [G]F.F.[C]A.
[C]After graduation Mary [F]Anne went out
[C]Lookin' for a bright new [G]world
[C]Wanda looked all a[F]round this town
And [C]all she [G]found was [C]Earl

Well it [C]wasn't two weeks after [F]she got married
That [C]Wanda started gettin' a[G]bused
She put [C]on dark glasses and [F]long sleeved blouses
And [C]make up to [G]cover a [C]bruise
Well she [C]finally got the nerve to [F]file for divorce
She [C]let the law take it from [G]there
But [C]Earl walked right through that re[F]straining order
And [C]put her in in[G]tensive [C]care

Right a[Am]way Mary Anne flew [G]in from Atlanta
On a [F]red eye midnight [C]flight
She [Am]held Wanda's hand as they [G]worked out a plan
And it [F]didn't take 'em long to de[G]cide

That Earl had to [C]die [F] [C]
Good[G]bye [F]Earl
Those black-eyed [C]peas [F] [C]
They tasted all right to [G]me [F]Earl
You're feelin' [C]weak [F] [C]
Why don't you [G]lay down
And [F]sleep Earl
Ain't it [C]dark [F] [C]
Wrapped up in that [G]tarp [F]Earl

INTRUMENTAL:  [C]  [F]  (x2)

[C]The cops came by to [F]bring Earl in
They [C]searched the house high and [G]low
Then they [C]tipped thier hats and said "[F]Thank you ladies
If you [C]hear from him [G]let us [C]know"
Well the [C]weeks went by and [F]Spring turned to Summer
And [C]Summer faded into [G]Fall
And it [C]turns out he was a [F]missing person
Who [C]nobody [G]missed at [C]all

So the [Am]girls bought some land and a [G]roadside stand
Out on [F]Highway 10[C]9
They sell [Am]Tennessee ham and [G]strawberry jam
And they [F]don't lose any sleep at [G]night 'cause

Earl had to [C]die [F] [C]
Good[G]bye [F]Earl
We need a [C]break [F] [C]
Let's go out to the [G]lake [F]Earl
We'll pack a [C]lunch [F] [C]
And stuff you in the [G]trunk [F]Earl
Well is that all [C]right [F] [C]
Good Let's go for a [G]ride [F]Earl, Hey

OUTRO: [C] [F] [C]    [G] [F]  (x5)
