Carroll County Accident

	  		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
