First off let me say that i have ENJOYED your site so very much. It has
really helped and improved my guitar playing. While i was going through
your site though, i did find that the below song was missing a verse that
is in the song done by Porter Waggoner. I have the song on CD and when
the missing verse came up, I thought that you might like to include it on
your site. The missing verse is italized. Ê Subject: Carroll County
Accident, Recorded by Porter Waggoner
CARROLL COUNTY ACCIDENT
ÊÊ GÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ D
Carroll County's pointed out as kind of square
The biggest thing that happens is the county fair,
GÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊ! ;&! nbsp;Ê D
I guess that's why we thought it such a big event,
What we call the Carroll County accident.
The wreck was on the highway just outside the line,
Walter Browning lost his life and for a time
It seemed that Mary Ellen Jones would surely die,
But she lived long enough for her to testify.
Now Walter Browning was a happy married man, He wore a golden wedding ring upon his hand. But It was gone, nobody knew just where it went, He lost it in the Carrol County Accident.
Mary Ellen testified that he flagged her down,
Said he was sick and could she drive him into town,
No one ever doubted what she said was true,
'Cause she was well respected in the county too.
I went down to see the wreck like all the rest,
The broken glass the bloody seats the tangled mess,
But I found something no one else had ever seen,
Behind the dash in Mary's crumpled up machine.
A little match box circled by a rubber band,
And inside the ring from Walter Browning's hand,
It took awhile to figure out just what it meant,
The truth about the Carroll County accident.
By dark of night I dropped the ring into a well,
And took a sacred oath that I would never tell,
The truth about the Carroll County accident,
For the County ordered dad a marble monument,
Yes, I lost him in the Carroll County accident.
