He was [Am]on his way home from [G/A]Candletop
Been two [Am]weeks gone and he [D/A]thought he stop
at [Am]Web's and have him a [Em]drink 'for he went home to [Am]her   

[Am]Andy Wo-Lo [G/A]said hello
[Am]he said 'Hi, what's a [D/A]doing', Wo
said [Am]sit down, I got some [Em]bad news that's gonna [Am]hurt.

Said [Am]I'm you best friend and you [G/A]know that's right
But [Am]your young bride ain't [D/A]home tonight
[Am]Since you've been gone she's been [Em]seeing that Amos boy, [Am]Seth   

[Am]He got mad and [G/A]he saw red
[Am]Andy said, Boy, don't you [D/A]lose your head
Cause to [Am]tell you the truth, [Em]I've been with her [Am]myself

[F#m7]That's the night that the [B]lights went out in [E]Georgia [C#m7]    
[F#m7]That's the night that they [B]hung an innocent [E]man [C#m7]    
Don't [F#m7]trust your soul to no [B]backwoods Southern [E]lawyer [C#m7]    
Cause the [F#m7]judge in the town's got [B]blood stains on his [Em]hands

[Am]Andy got scared and he [G/A]left the bar
[Am]Walking on home cause he [D/A]didn't live far
You [Am]see, Andy didn't have many [Em]friends and he just lost him [Am]one   

[Am]Brother thought his wife [G/A]must've left town
So he [Am]went home and [D/A]finally found
the [Am]only thing Daddy [Em]left him and that was a[Am] gun   

[Am]He went off to [G/A]Andy's house
[Am]Slipping through the woods as [D/A]quiet as a mouse
[Am]Come upon some tracks [Em]too small for Andy to [Am]make   

He [Am]looked through the screen at the [G/A]back porch door
[Am]He saw Andy lying [D/A]on the floor
In a [Am]puddle of blood,[Em] and he started to [Am]shake.

The [F#m7]Georgia Patrol was [B]making their rounds
so he [E]fired a shot just to [C#m7]flag them down
A [F#m7]big bellied sheriff grabbed [B]his gun and said,
Why'd you [Em]do it?

The [Am]judge said guilty on a [G/A]make-believe trial
[Am]Slapped the sherriff on the [D/A]back with a smile
Said [Am]supper's waiting at [Em]home and I gotta get [Am]to it

[F#m7]That's the night that the [B]lights went out in [E]Georgia [C#m7]    
[F#m7]That's the night that they [B]hung an innocent [E]man [C#m7]    
Don't [F#m7]trust your soul to no [B]backwoods Southern [E]lawyer [C#m7]    
Cause the [F#m7]judge in the town's got [B]blood stains on his [Em]hands

Well they [Am]hung my brother be[G/A]fore I could say
the [Am]tracks he saw while [D/A]on this way
to [Am]Andy's house and [Em]back that night were [Am]mine   

And [Am]his cheatin' wife had [G/A]never left town
[Am]That's one body that'll [D/A]never be found
You [Am]see, little sister don't [Em]miss when she aims her [Am]gun   

[F#m7]That's the night that the [B]lights went out in [E]Georgia [C#m7]    
[F#m7]That's the night that they [B]hung an innocent [E]man [C#m7]    
Don't [F#m7]trust your soul to no [B]backwoods Southern [E]lawyer [C#m7]    
Cause the [F#m7]judge in the town's got [B]blood stains on his [Em]hands

Well they hung my brother before I could say

to Andy's house and back that night were mine

And his cheatin' wife had never left town
That's one body that'll never be found
You see, little sister don't miss when she aims her gun

That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia
That's the night that they hung an innocent man

That's the night that they hung an innocent man
Don't trust your soul to no backwoods Southern lawyer
Cause the judge in the town's got blood stains on his hands
