Alabama

Alabama - Christmas Is Love

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?"

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

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

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
