Testo della canzone The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia di Reba McEntire
Album: For My Broken Heart
He was on his way from Candletop
Been two weeks gone and he thought he’d stop
At Web’s and have him a drink ‘for he went home to her
Andy Wo-Lo said hello
He said He what’s a doing
Wo said Sit down I got some bad news that’s gonna hurt
Said I’m your best friend and you know that’s right
But your young bride ain’t home tonight
Since you been gone she’s been seeing that Amos boy Seth
He got mad and he saw red
Andy said boy don’t you lose your head
Cause to tell you the truth I’ve been with her myself

Chorus:
That’s the night that the lights went out in Georgia
That’s the night that they hung an innocent man
Don’t trust your soul to no back woods Southern lawyer
Cause the judge in the town’s got bloodstain’s on his hand

Andy got scared and left the bar
Walking on home cause he didn’t live far you see
Andy didn’t have many friends and he just lost him one
Brother thought his wife must’ve 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 Andy’s 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 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
Why’d you do it?

The judge said guilty on a make believe trial
Slapped the sherriff on the back with a smile
and said Supper’s waiting at home and I gotta get to it

Chorus

They hung my brother before I could say
The tracks he saw while on his way
To Andy’s house and back that night were mine
And his cheatin wife had never left town
And that’s one body that’ll never be found
You see litter sister don’t miss when she aims her gun

Repeat chorus twice
