The Night the Lights went out in Georgia

	  		CAPO at III 
 
       Am                    OPEN 
He was on his way home from Candletop 
 C                            D 
Been two weeks gone and he thought he stop 
    C                     Em                       Am 
at Web's and have him a drink 'for he went home to her 
 
 Am             OPEN 
Andy Wo-Lo said hello 
         C             D 
he said 'Hi, what's a doing', Wo 
      C                   Em                    Am 
said sit down, I got some bad news that's gonna hurt. 
 
  Am                             OPEN 
Said I'm you best friend and you know that's right 
     C                      D 
But your young bride ain't home tonight 
  C                                Em                   Am 
Since you've been gone she's been seeing that Amos boy, Seth 
 
Am             OPEN 
He got mad and he saw red 
 C                         D 
Andy said, Boy, don't you lose your head 
          C                  Em                 Am 
Cause to tell you the truth, I've been with her myself 
 
 
 
 A                          B                 E 
That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia 
 A                          B                E 
That's the night that they hung an innocent man 
 A                           B                 E 
Don't trust your soul to no backwoods Southern lawyer 
           A                       B                  Em 
Cause the judge in the town's got blood stains on his hands 
 
 
 Am                    OPEN 
Andy got scared and he left the bar 
 C                        D 
Walking on home cause he didn't live far 
     C                          Em                          Am 
You see, Andy didn't have many friends and he just lost him one 
 
 Am                      OPEN 
Brother thought his wife must've left town 
       C              D 
So he went home and finally found 
     C                Em                     Am 
the only thing Daddy left him and that was a gun 
 
 Am             OPEN 
He went off to Andy's house 
 C                              D 
Slipping through the woods as quiet as a mouse 
 C               Em                         Am 
Come upon some tracks too small for Andy to make 
 
    Am                              OPEN 
He looked through the screen at the back porch door 
C            D 
He saw Andy lying on the floor 
      C               Em                 Am 
In a puddle of blood, and he started to shake. 
 
     A                  B 
The Georgia Patrol was making their rounds 
       E                    E 
so he fired a shot just to flag them down 
  A                                B 
A big bellied sheriff grabbed his gun and said, 
          Em 
Why'd you do it? 
 
      Am                   OPEN 
They hung my brother before I could say 
      C                  D 
the tracks he saw while on this way 
    C                Em                  Am 
to Andy's house and back that night were mine 
 
 Am                        OPEN 
And his cheatin' wife had never left town 
 C                       D 
That's one body that'll never be found 
    C                        Em                     Am 
You see, little sister don't miss when she aims her gun 
 
 A                          B                 E 
That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia 
 A                          B                E 
That's the night that they hung an innocent man 
 A                           B                 E 
Don't trust your soul to no backwoods Southern lawyer 
           A                       B                  E 
Cause the judge in the town's got blood stains on his hands
