Carroll Co Incident   Misc. Country and Western

                  by Porter Wagnor
Carroll county's pointed out as kind of square
The biggest thing that happens is the county fair
I guess that's why we thought it such a big event
What we all call the Carroll county accident

The wreck was on the highway just outside the line
Walter Browning lost his life and for a time
It seemed that Mary Ellen Jones would surely die
But she lived long enough for her to testify

Mary Ellen testified he'd flagged her down
Said he was sick and could she drive him into town
No one ever doubted what she said was true
Cause she was well respected in the County too

I went down to see the wreck like all the rest
The broken glass,the bloody seats,the tangled mess
But I found something no one else had even seen
Begin the dash in Mary's crumpled up machine

A little match box circled by a rubber band
And inside the ring from Walter Brownings hand
It took awhile to figure out just what it meant
The truth about the Carroll County accident

By dark of night I dropped the ring into a well
And took a sacred oath that I would never tell
The truth about the Carroll County accident
For the County ordered dad a marble monument
