Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
Goodbye Earl


[Intro]

A


[Verse 1]

A                           D
Mary Ann and Wanda were the best of friends
A                             E
All through their high school days
A                   D
Both members of the 4H club 
     A             E A 
Both active in the FFA
A                D                              
After graduation Mary Ann went looking
A                E
For a bright new world
A                D
Wanda looked all around this town
    A       E         A  
And all she found was Earl


[Verse 2]

        A                      D
Well it wasn't two weeks after she got married that
A                     E
Wanda started getting abused
           A                D
She put on dark glasses and long sleeved blouses
    A          E       A
And make up to cover a bruise
         A                        D
Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce
    A                        E
She let the law take it from there
    A                              D
But Earl walked right through that restraining order
    A          E         A
And put her in intensive care


[Pre-Chorus 1]

      F#                 E 
Right away Mary Ann flew in from Atlanta
     D                A
On a red eye midnight flight
    F#                        E
She held Wanda's hand as they worked out a plan
       D                        E
And it didn't take them long to decide


[Chorus 1]

                  A   D   
That Earl had to die         
A   E   D
Goodbye Earl
               A     D               
You're feeling weak     
              A            E     D     A
Why don’t you lay down and sleep Earl


[Verse 3]

    A               D
The cops came by to bring Earl in
     A                           E
They searched the house high and low
          A                          D
Then they tipped their hats and said thank you ladies
       A             E      A
If you hear from him let us know
         A                 D
Well the weeks went by and spring turned to summer
    A                 E
And summer faded into fall
       A                  D
And it turns out he was a missing person
     A      E         A
That nobody missed at all


[Pre-Chorus 2]

       F#                           E
So the girls bought some land and a roadside stand
       D       A
Out on Highway 109
          F#                E
They sell Tennessee ham and strawberry jam
         D                       E
And they don't lose any sleep at night


[Chorus 2]

                  A    D    
Cause Earl had to die         
A   E   D
Goodbye Earl
          A      D          
We need a break
         A          E    D
Let's go out to the lake Earl
             A      D            
We'll pack a lunch    
          A        E     D
Stuff you into the trunk Earl
                 A     D             
Well is that all right 
           A        E    D          A
Good let's go for a ride Earl, Hey!
