Goodbye Earl

Mary Anne and Wanda were the best of friends
All through their high school days
Both members of the 4H Club
Both active in the FFA
After graduation Mary Anne went out lookin' for a brand new world
Wanda looked all around this town and all she found was Earl

Well it wasn't two weeks after she got married that
Wanda started getting abused
She put on dark glasses and long sleeved blouses and
make-up to cover a bruise

Well she finally got the nerve to file for divorce
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 all right to me Earl
You're feelin' weak
Why don't you lay downand sleep Earl
Ain't it dark
Wrapped up in that tarp Earl?

The cops came by to bring Earl in
They searched the househigh 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 standout 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
Well is that all right Good
Let's go for a ride Earl hey
