“Goodbye Earl” by Dixie Chicks

Mary Anne and Wanda were the best of friends
All through their high school days
Both members of the 4-H 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

It wasn’t two weeks after she got married that
Wanda started gettin’ abused
She’d put on dark glasses or long sleeved blouses
Or make-up to cover a bruise
Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce
And she let the law take it from there
But Earl walked right through that restraining order
And put her in intensive care

Right away Mary Anne flew in from Atlanta
On a red eye midnight flight
She held Wanda’s hand as they worked out a plan
And it didn’t take ’em long to decide

That Earl had to die
goodbye Earl
Those black-eyed peas
they tasted alright to me
Earl
You’re feelin’ weak?
Why don’t you lay down and sleep
Earl
Ain’t it dark wrapped up in that tarp
Earl

The cops came by 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 person who nobody missed at all

So the girls bought some land and a roadside stand
Out on highway 109
They sell Tennessee ham and strawberry jam
And they don’t lose any sleep at night
’cause

Earl had to die
goodbye Earl
We need a break
let’s go out to the lake
Earl
We’ll pack a lunch
and stuff you in the trunk
Earl
Is that alright?
Good!
Let’s go for a ride
Earl
