Goodbye Earl

by The Dixie Chicks

Goodbye Earl

Mary anne and wanda were the best of friends
All through their high school days
Both members of the 4h club
Both active in the ffa
After graduation mary anne went out lookin
For a bright new world
Wanda looked all around this town
And all she found was earl

Well it wasnt two weeks
After she got married that
Wanda started gettin abused
She put on dark glasses and long
sleeved blouses
And make-up to cover a bruise
Well she finally got the nerve to
file for divorce
She let the law take it from there
But earl walked right through that
And put her in intensive care

Right away mary anne flew in from atlanta
On a red eye midnight flight
She held wandas hand as they
Worked out a plan
And it didnt take long to decide

That earl had to die
Goodbye earl
Those black-eyed peas
They tasted all right to me earl
Youre feeling weak
Why dont you lay down
And sleep earl
Aint it dark
Wrapped up in that tarp earl

The cops came to bring earl in
They searched the house
High and low
Then they tipped their hats
And said thank you ladies
If you hear from him let us know

Well the weeks went by and
Spring turned to summer
And summer faded into fall
And it turns out he was a missing
Who nobody missed at all

So the girls bouth some land
And a roadside stand
Out on highway 109
They sell tennessee ham
And strawberry jam
And they dont
Lose any sleep at night cause

Earl had to die
Goodbye earl
We need a break
Lets go out to the lake earl
Well pack a lunch
And stuff you in the trunk earl
Well is that all right
Good lets go for a ride
Earl hey
