Carroll County Accident  -  Porter Wagoner

Intro:  C          G7          C

#1
C                               G7
Carroll County's pointed out as kinda of square
                                      C
The biggest thing that happens, is the county fair,
                                         G7
I guess that's why it seemed like such a big event,
                                    C
What we all call the Carroll County accident.

#2
C                                 G7
The wreck was on the highway just inside the line,
                                   C
Walter Browning lost his life, and for a time
                                      G7
It seemed that Mary Ellen Jones would surely die,
                                     C
But she lived long enough for her to testify.

#3
C                           G7
Walter Browning was a happy married man,
                                  C
And he wore a golden wedding ring upon his hand,
                                  G7
But it was gone, nobody knew just where it went,
                                  C           F  A  D
He lost it, in the Carroll County Accident.

#4
D                            A
Mary Ellen testified that he flagged her down,
                                          D
Said he was sick, and could she drive him into town,
                             A
No one ever doubted what she said was true,
                                     D
'Cause she was well respected in the county too.

#5
D                                 A
I went down to see the wreck like all the rest,
                                        D
The bloody seats, the broken glass, the tangled mess,
                                      A
But I found something no one else had even seen,
                                   D             G  B7  E
Behind the dash in Mary's crumpled up machine.

#6
E                               B7
A little match box circled by a rubber band,
                                E
And inside the ring from Walter Browning's hand,
                                  B7
It took awhile to figure out just what it meant,
                                   E
The truth about the Carroll County accident.

#7
E                                   B7
By dark of night I dropped the ring into a well,
                                    E
And took a sacred oath that I would never tell,
                                   B7
The truth about the Carroll County accident,
                                      E
Cause the County ordered Dad a marble monument,
  B7                             E           A  E
I lost him in the Carroll County accident.
