[A]Murder tonight in the trailer [G]park.
[F]Mrs. Annabelle Evans found
with her [E]throat cut after dark.
[A]Her pockets turned inside out
her dresser [G]drawers turned upside down.
[F]Anna's neighbor, Peg, identifies the body
[E]lets out a hollow kind of [B]sound.[E]
[E]Homicide is [A]tying yellow ribbons
[E]around her silver Air[A]stream.
[E]Red cherries [A]slashing up the night
[B]cutting through that [A]cordoned crime [E]scene.
[A]There's been a [G]murder in the trailer park t[E]onight.
[A]Murder tonight in the trailer [G]park.
[F]Pack your things, Ann Marie, we're heading
[E]west, we're gonna make a fresh start.
[A]I've been saving pennies,
been looking [G]forward to this day.
[F]No time for questions, are you coming
[E]or are you gonna [B]stay?[E]
[E]Crosstown at the Wa[A]terton
[E]George Evans is sitting tall and [A]tight,
[E]buying drinks for all the [A]regulars
[B]bragging about how them [A]bones danced for him [E]tonight.
[A]There's been a [G]murder in the trailer park [E]tonight.
[A]Murder tonight in the trailer [G]park.
[F]Faceless man counting crumpled bills,
[E]hotel neon fights the dark.
[A]TV set in the corner, they're talking [G]murder on the late-night news.
[F]He turns down the sound, waits for the sports.
[E]He only wants to know "[B]did I win or did I [E]lose?"
[E]There's been a [A]murder in the trailer [E]park tonight.[A]
[E]Murder i[A]n the trailer p[E]ark.
The song sounds right except for the first B (and its repetitions), which I
think sounds a little off. It must be some B variation. If you can
correct me, I can go to my grave happy.
