lights went out in georgia  Reba McEntire



B[C]een two weeks gone and he tho[D]ught he stop
at W[C]eb's and have him a dr[Em]ink 'for he went home to [Am]her
Am OPEN
Andy Wo-Lo said hello
he said '[C]Hi, what's a d[D]oing', Wo
said s[C]it down, I got some [Em]bad news that's gonna [Am]hurt.
Am OPEN
Said I'm you best friend and you know that's right
But y[C]our young bride ain't h[D]ome tonight
Si[C]nce you've been gone she's been s[Em]eeing that Amos boy, [Am]Seth
Am OPEN
He got mad and he saw red
A[C]ndy said, Boy, don't you l[D]ose your head
Cause to t[C]ell you the truth, [Em]I've been with her [Am]myself
----------------------------------------------------------

T[A]hat's the night that the li[B]ghts went out in G[E]eorgia
T[A]hat's the night that they h[B]ung an innocent m[E]an
D[A]on't trust your soul to no b[B]ackwoods Southern [E]lawyer
Cause the j[A]udge in the town's got b[B]lood stains on his [Em]hands
----------------------------------------------------------

Am OPEN
Andy got scared and he left the bar
W[C]alking on home cause he d[D]idn't live far
You s[C]ee, Andy didn't have many f[Em]riends and he just lost him [Am]one
Am OPEN
Brother thought his wife must've left town
So he w[C]ent home and fi[D]nally found
the o[C]nly thing Daddy l[Em]eft him and that was a [Am]gun
Am OPEN
He went off to Andy's house
S[C]lipping through the woods as qu[D]iet as a mouse
C[C]ome upon some tr[Em]acks too small for Andy to [Am]make
Am OPEN
He looked through the screen at the back porch door
[C]He saw Andy l[D]ying on the floor
In a p[C]uddle of blood, [Em]and he started to s[Am]hake.
The G[A]eorgia Patrol was m[B]aking their rounds
so he f[E]ired a shot just to f[E]lag them down
A [A]big bellied sheriff grabbed his g[B]un and said,
Why'd you [Em]do it?
Am OPEN
They hung my brother before I could say
the tr[C]acks he saw while o[D]n this way
to A[C]ndy's house and b[Em]ack that night were [Am]mine
Am OPEN
And his cheatin' wife had never left town
T[C]hat's one body that'll n[D]ever be found
You [C]see, little sister don't [Em]miss when she aims her [Am]gun
T[A]hat's the night that the li[B]ghts went out in G[E]eorgia
T[A]hat's the night that they h[B]ung an innocent m[E]an
D[A]on't trust your soul to no b[B]ackwoods Southern [E]lawyer
Cause the j[A]udge in the town's got b[B]lood stains on his [E]hands
