Goodbye Earl

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

tabchorus
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,
