"The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" is a Southern Gothic song written by songwriter Bobby Russell and performed in 1972 by his then-wife Vicki Lawrence; Reba McEntire later covered it in 1991 (from Wikipedia). Cover performed by Rachael Johnson and Dusty Parker live at Picks, Nashville (Best Western Music Row) Rachael Johnson on Myspace: Hey dear Rachael, Send my greetings to you, Dusty and your Mom and Dad... Hugs from Germany, Heidi Lyrics: He was on his way home from candletop Been two weeks gone and he thought hed stop At webs and have him a drink for he went home to her Andy wo-lo said hello He said hi whats a doing Wo said sit down I got some bad news thats gonna hurt Said Im your best friend and you know thats right But your young bride aint home tonight Since you been gone shes been seeing that amos boy seth He got mad and he saw red Andy said boy dont you lose your head Cause to tell you the truth Ive been with her myself Chorus: Thats the night the lights went out in georgia Thats the night that they hung an innocent man Dont trust your soul to no back woods southern lawyer Cause the judge in the towns got bloodstains on his hand Andy got scared and left the bar Walking on home cause he didnt live far you see Andy didnt have many friends and he just lost him one Brother thought his wife mustve left town So he went home and finally found the only thing Daddy had left him and that was a gun He went off to andys house Slipping through the back woods quiet as a mouse Came upon some tracks too small for andy to make He looked through the screen at the back porch door He saw andy lying on the floor In a puddle of blood and he started to shake The georgia patrol was making their rounds So he fired a shot just to flag em down And a big bellied sheriff grabbed his gun and said Whyd you do it? The judge said guilty in a make believe trial Slapped the sherrif on the back with a smile and said Suppers waiting at home and I got to get to it Chorus They hung my brother before I could say The tracks he saw while on his way To andys house and back that night were mine And his cheatin wife had never left town And thats one body that'll be found You see little sister dont miss when she aims her gun Copyright©2009 (video) fariethesun.
