C chordC G7 chordG7
Carroll County's pointed out as kind of square
C chordC
The biggest thing that happens is the county fair
G7 chordG7
I guess that's why it seemed like such a big event
C chordC
What we all call the Carroll County accident

G7 chordG7
The wreck was on the highway just inside the line
C chordC
Walter Browning lost his life and for a time
G7 chordG7
It seemed that Mary Ellen Jones would surely die
C chordC
But she lived long enough for her to testify

G7 chordG7
Walter Browning was a happy married man
C chordC
And he wore a golden wedding ring upon his hand
G7 chordG7
But it was gone nobody knew just where it went
C chordC
He lost it in the Carroll County accident

G7 chordG7
Mary Ellen testified he flagged her down
C chordC
Said he was sick and could she drive him into town
G7 chordG7
No one even doubted what she said was true
C chordC
Cause she was well respected in the county too

G7 chordG7
I went down to see the wreck like all the rest
C chordC
The bloody seats the broken glass the tangled mess
G7 chordG7
But I found something no one else had even seen
C chordC
Behind the dash in Mary's crumpled up machine

G7 chordG7
A chordA little match box circled by a rubber band
C chordC
And inside the ring from Walter Browning's hand
G7 chordG7
It took awhile to figure out just what it meant
C chordC
The truth about the Carroll County accident

G7 chordG7
By dark of night I dropped the ring into a well
C chordC
And took a sacred oath that I would never tell
G7 chordG7
The truth about the Carroll County accident
C chordC
Cause the county ordered dad a marble monument
G7 chordG7 C chordC
I lost him in the Carroll County accident
