How To Play

INTRO
C    G  G7     C
 
 
VERSE 1
C                                        G7
Carroll County's pointed out as kind 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 call the Carroll County accident
 
 
VERSE 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
 
 
VERSE 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        A7
He lost it in the Carroll County accident
 
 
VERSE 4
D                       A7
Mary Ellen testified he flagged her down
                                         D
Said he was sick and could she drive him into town
                             A7
No one even doubted what she said was true
                                     D
'Cause she was well respected in the county too
 
 
VERSE 5
D                                 A7
I went down to see the wreck like all the rest
                                        D
The bloody seats, the broken glass, the tangled mess
                                      A7
But I found something no one else had even seen
                                   D          B  E
Behind the dash in Mary's crumpled up machine
 
 
VERSE 6
  E                             B7
A little match box circled by a rubber band
                                E
And inside the ring from Walter Browning's hand
                  E7              B7
It took awhile to figure out just what it meant
                                   E
The truth about the Carroll County accident
 
 
VERSE 7
   E               E7                 B7
By dark of night I dropped the ring into a well
                                    E
And took a sacred oath that I would never tell
                    E7              B7
The truth about the Carroll County accident
                                      E
Cause the County ordered dad a marble monument
 
 
OUTRO
  B7                              E
I lost him in the Carroll County accident
