He was on his way home from Candletop He was two weeks gone, and he'd thought he'd stop At Web's and have a drink 'fore he went home to her Andy Wo-Lo said hello He said "How you doin'? 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 backward Southern lawyer Cuz the judge in town has got blood stains on his hands. Well Andy got scared, and left the bar Walkin' on home, cuz he didn't live far You see, Andy didn't have many friends, And he just lost his 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 Slippin' through the back woods quiet as a mouse And came upon some tracks too small for Andy to make He looked through the screen at the back porch door Saw old Andy there lyin' on the floor In a puddle of blood, and he started to shake. Georgia patrol was making their rounds So he fired a shot just to flag them down A big-bellied sherriff grabbed his gun And said "Why'd you do it? 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 with a backward Southern lawyer Cuz the judge in town has got blood stains on his hands. Well 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 That's one body that'll never be found You see, little sister don't miss when she aims her gun.
