Carrol County Accident - Porter Wagoner

Tabbed by JerseyRock!!!  ENJOY!!!



C                              G
CARROL COUNTY'S POINTED OUT AS KINDA SQUARE
                                      C
THE BIGGEST THING THAT HAPPENS IS THE COUNTY FAIR
                                             G
AND I GUESS THAT'S WHY IT SEEMED LIKE SUCH A BIG EVENT
                                   C
WHAT WE ALL CALL THE CARROL COUNTY ACCIDENT
                                    G
THE WRECK WAS ON THE HIGHWAY JUST INSIDE THE LINE
                                  C
WALTER BROWNING LOST HIS LIFE AND FOR A TIME
                                      G
IT SEEMED THAT MARY ELLEN JONES WOULD SURELY DIE
                                     C
BUT SHE LIVED LONG ENOUGH FOR HER TO TESTIFY
                                G
NOW WALTER BROWNING WAS A HAPPY MARRIED MAN
                                   C
AND HE WORE A GOLDEN WEDDING RING UPON HIS HAND
                                 G
BUT IT WAS GONE NOBODY KNEW JUST WHERE IT WENT
                                  C        A D
HE'D LOST IT IN THE CARROL COUNTY ACCIDENT


First Key Change:
D                       A
MARY ELLEN TESTIFIED HE FLAGGED HER DOWN
                                         D
SAID HE WAS SICK AND COULD SHE DRIVE HIM INTO TOWN
                                 A
AND NO ONE EVEN DOUBTED WHAT SHE SAID WAS TRUE
                                    D
CAUSE SHE WAS WELL RESPECTED IN THE COUNTY TOO
D                                 A
I WENT DOWN TO SEE THE WRECK LIKE ALL THE REST
                                      D
THE BLOODY SEATS THE BROKEN GLASS THE TANGLED MESS
                                      A
BUT I FOUND SOMETHING NO ONE ELSE HAD EVEN SEEN
                                   D          C E
BEHIND THE DASH IN MARY'S CRUMPLED UP MACHINE


Final Key Change:
E                              B7
A LITTLE MATCHBOX CIRCLED BY A RUBBER BAND
                                E
AND INSIDE THE RING FROM WALTER BROWNING'S HAND
                                      B7
AND IT TOOK AWHILE TO FIGURE OUT JUST WHAT IT MEANT
                                   E
THE TRUTH BEHIND THE CARROL COUNTY ACCIDENT
                                      B7
BY DARK OF NIGHT I DROPPED THE RING INTO A WELL
                                    E
AND TOOK A SACRED OATH THAT I WOULD NEVER TELL
                                  B7
THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CARROL COUNTY ACCIDENT
                                        E
CAUSE THE COUNTY'D ORDERED DAD A MARBLE MONUMENT
  B7                            E
I LOST HIM IN THE CARROL COUNTY ACCIDENT....
