Be Careful of Stones that You Throw--David Allan Coe

written by Hank Williams (I think)

Corrections welcome.

CHORUS:

F C F C

A tongue can accuse and carry bad news

F C G7

The seed of distrust it will sow

F C G7 F

But unless you have made no mistakes in your life

C G7 F C

Be careful of stones that you throw

(SPOKEN)

C

Why a neighbor lady was passin' my garden one time

F

And she stopped and I knew right away

G7 F

That gossip not flowers she had on her mind

G7

And this is what I heard her say

C

She said, you know that girl down the street, David Allan?

She should be run from our 'midst

F

Why, she drinks and she talks quite a lot

G7 F

Well she knows not to speak to my child or to me

C

And my neighbor then smiled, and I thought

CHORUS

(SPOKEN)

C

Well a car speeding by and the screaming of brakes

F

A screamin' that made my blood chill

G7 F

And my neighbor's one child had been pulled from the path

G7

And saved by a girl that was lyin' still

C

And the child was unhurt and my neighbor cried out, she said

F

Oh who was that brave girl so sweet

G7 F

And I covered the crushed broken body and said,

C

Why that was that bad girl that lived down the street

CHORUS

CHORDS:

F xx3211

C x32010

G7 320001
