[Intro]
       G      C     G    Em    D

[Verse 1]

G 
The first time I saw Carrie Brown
                     C
She was so young and fair
                         G                  Em            D
A voice like spring rain fallin' down and sunlight in her hair
    G                                         C
I'd never seen her face before so I asked all around
                 G                           D          G
Her daddy owns a grocery store and she lives in Bristol town


[Chorus]


G                                    C
Carrie darlin' Carrie Carrie Brown I cry
                 G              Em               D
If I can't marry Carrie Brown believe I'd rather die


[Verse 2]


G 
I laid my last ten dollars down
                       C
Though I didn't need a thing
                    G
Just to touch sweet Carrie Brown
         Em           D
When she handed me my change
  G                                                   C
I hung around 'till closin' time I scarce believed my eyes
                   G
My darlin' walkin' arm in arm
       D               G
With a boy named Billy Wise


[Chorus]


G                                      C
Carrie darling Carrie , Carrie Brown I cry
                 G              Em                 D
If I can't marry Carrie Brown,I believe I'd rather die


[Verse 3]


G                                               C
I walked around in Bristol town a bitter broken man
                       G                Em             D
A heart that pined for Carrie Brown and a pistol in my hand
   G                                             C
We met again on State Street poor Billy Wise and me
              G               D             G
I shot him in Virginia and he died in Tennessee


[Chorus]


G                                      C
Carrie Darling Carrie , Carrie Brown I cry
                 G                Em                 D
If I can't marry Carrie Brown , I believe I'd rather die


[Verse 4]


G                                                C
Now I'm down in the Bristol jail and all I do is cry
                      G                 Em                D
'Cause the jury found me guilty and the judge says I must die
    G 
I'm just a poor young mountain boy
                    C
Ain't never been to town
                 G             D                  G
And I've come to ruination for the love of Carrie Brown


[Chorus]


G                                     C
Carrie darling Carrie, Carrie Brown I cry
                 G               Em                 D
If I can't marry Carrie Brown, I believe I'd rather die
