Goodbye Earl  Me First and the Gimme Gimmes

[A]Mary Anne and Wanda were the [D]best of friends
[A]All through their high school [E]days
[A]Both members of the [D]4H club
Both [A]active in the [E]FF[A]A
[A]After graduation [D]Mary Anne went lookin'
[A]For a bright new [E]world
[A]Wanda looked all [D]around this town
And [A]all she [E]found was [A]Earl
Well it [A]wasn't two weeks after [D]she got married that
[A]Wanda started gettin' a[E]bused
She put on [A]dark glasses and [D]long sleeved blouses
And [A]make up to [E]cover a [A]bruise
Well she [A]finally got the nerve to [D]file for divorce
She [A]let the law take it from [E]there
But [A]Earl walked right through that res[D]training order
And [A]put her in in[E]tensive [A]care
Right [F#m]away Mary Anne flew [E]in from Atlanta
On a [D]red eye midnight [A]flight
She [F#m]held Wanda's hand as they [E]worked out a plan
And it [D]didn't take 'em long to de[E]cide
That Earl had to [A]die [D] [A] Good[E]bye [D]Earl
You're feelin' [A]weak [D] why don't you [A]lay down and [E]sleep [D]Earl[A]
The [A]cops came by to [D]bring Earl in
They [A]searched the house high and [E]low
Then they [A]tipped their hats and said [D]thank you ladies
If you [A]hear from him [E]let us [A]know
Well the [A]weeks went by and [D]spring turned to summer
And [A]summer faded into [E]fall
And it [A]turns out he was a [D]missing person
That [A]nobody [E]missed at [A]all
So the [F#m]girls bought some land and a [E]roadside stand
Out on [D]Highway 10[A]9
They sell [F#m]Tennessee ham and [E]strawberry jam
And they [D]don't lose any sleep at [E]night
Cause Earl had to [A]die [D] [A] Good[E]bye [D]Earl
We need a [A]break. [D] Let's go [A]out to the [E]lake [D]Earl
We'll pack a [A]lunch. [D] Stuff you [A]into the [E]trunk [D]Earl
Well is that all [A]right. [D] Good let's [A]go for a [E]ride [D]Earl. Hey![A]
