He was on his way home from Candletop, Been two weeks gone, and he'd thought he'd stop, At Web's and have him a drink 'fore he went home to her. Andy Wolloe said "Hello." He said "Hi, what's doin', Wo?" Said "Sit down, I got some bad news and it's gonna hurt." He 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." Now he got mad, and he saw red. Andy said: "Boy, don't you lose your head, 'Cos to tell you the truth, I've been with her myself." That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia. That's the night that they hung an innocent man. Well, don't trust your soul to no backwoods southern lawyer. 'Cos the judge in the town's got bloodstains on his hands. Well Andy got scared, and left the bar, Walkin' on home, 'cos he didn't live far. You see, Andy didn't have many friends, And he just lost him one. Brother thought his wife musta 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, Slippin' 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, And he saw Andy lyin' on the floor, In a puddle of blood, and he started to shake.
