Candy Apple Red

Song Author Houston Turner Performer: Bill Anderson Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]He came speeding through the [G7]town each day at [C]sundown
And his car was painted [F]candy apple [C]red  
He was [F]coming there to see the sheriff's [C]daughter
And the sheriff didn't know it so they [G7]said   

Time and [C]time again the [G7]sheriff tried to catch [C]him  
But he always speeded [F]up and got [C]away
That old [F]county jail stood patiently a [C]waiting
And the sheriff vowed he'd [G7]put him there some [C]day  

Well there goes [F]candy apple red that's [C]what the people said
If he [G7]doesn't slow it down a bit he's [F]gonna end up [C]dead
And the [F]sheriff's daughter said she'd [C]rather end up dead
Than to [G7]live without her candy apple [C]red  

So the sheriff built a [G7]barricade to catch [C]him  
And he sat there at the [F]limits of the [C]town
But the [F]sheriff's daughter had already [C]met him
And had married him before the sun went [G7]down   

When the [C]sheriff saw him [G7]coming down the [C]highway
He saw they couldn't stop and [F]quickly caught his [C]breath
As they [F]crashed the barricade the car [C]exploded
And the boy and girl [G7]went to a flaming [C]death

Well there goes [F]candy apple red that's [C]what the people said
If he [G7]doesn't slow it down a bit he's [F]gonna end up [C]dead
And the [F]sheriff's daughter said she'd [C]rather end up dead
Than to [G7]live without her candy apple [C]red  

He came speeding through the town each day at sundown
And his car was painted candy apple red
He was coming there to see the sheriff's daughter
And the sheriff didn't know it so they said

Time and time again the sheriff tried to catch him
But he always speeded up and got away
That old county jail stood patiently a waiting
And the sheriff vowed he'd put him there some day

Well there goes candy apple red that's what the people said
If he doesn't slow it down a bit he's gonna end up dead
And the sheriff's daughter said she'd rather end up dead
Than to live without her candy apple red

So the sheriff built a barricade to catch him
And he sat there at the limits of the town
But the sheriff's daughter had already met him
And had married him before the sun went down

When the sheriff saw him coming down the highway
He saw they couldn't stop and quickly caught his breath
As they crashed the barricade the car exploded
And the boy and girl went to a flaming death

Well there goes candy apple red that's what the people said
If he doesn't slow it down a bit he's gonna end up dead
And the sheriff's daughter said she'd rather end up dead
Than to live without her candy apple red
