It looks like the "Stupid" tag must have just barely beat out the "Dumbass" tag

BTW Vicki Lawrence was hot back in the day.

Facebook, myspace and rap songs have done so much for helping police clear cases the last few years. Good job stupid crooks!

You know, when I was coming down here, I was playin it. And "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia" came on. Now I ain't heard that song since it was big, but when it was big, I heard it a million-trillion times. I'm listening to it this morning, and this was the first time I ever realized that the lady singing the song, was the one who killed Andy.

No, Andy was her brother and got BLAMED for the shooting of Andy's whoring wife and lover in the song.

The night the Lights Went Out In Georgia
Vicki Lawrence
Words and Music by her husband, Bobby Russell

(peak Billboard position # 1 in 1973)

He was on his way home from Candletop
Been two weeks gone and he thought he'd stop
At William's and have him a drink 'fore he went home to her
Andy Wolloe said "Hello"
And he said "Hi, what's doin', Wo?"
"Seth, sit down, I got some bad news, 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 seein' that Amos boy, Seth "
Well, he got mad 'n' he saw red and Andy said "Boy, don'tcha lose your head"
" 'cause to tell ya the truth, I 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
'cause the judge in the town's got bloodstains on his hands

Well, Andy got scared and left the bar
Walkin' on home 'cause he didn't live far
See, Andy didn't have many friends and he'd just lost him one
Brother thought his wife musta left town
So he went home and finally found
The only thing Papa had left him, that was a gun

And he went off to Andy's house
A'skippin' through the backwoods 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

Well, the Georgia Patrol was a'makin' their rounds
So he fired a shot just to flag 'em down
And a big-bellied sheriff got his gun and said "why'dya do it?"
And the judge said "Guilty" in a make-believe trial
And slapped the sheriff on the back with a smile
Said' supper's waitin' at home and I gotta get to it"

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
'cause the judge in the town's got bloodstains 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
And that's one body that'll never be found
See, little sister don't miss when she aims her gun

That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia, oh-oh-aah
That's the night that they hung an innocent man, ah-huh-unh
Well, don't trust your soul to no backwoods Southern lawyer

FADE

/Fail.

She was 'picked' for the Carol Burnett show cause of their resemblence. Now Carol Burnett is a comedy God, but no looker. Plus, Vicki started getting all prima donna on everyone after she did that pathetic song. I mean, the beach could've saved her brother from an execution if she simply admitted 'she' did it, but let her own kin fry instead.

/Double Fail

When I was a kid, I somehow formed the idea that the 'lights going out in Georgia' was due to somebody frying in the electric chair. All my farking life I believed this, having never really listened to the song until recently.

/good song, actually
 
2008-11-21 08:29:10 AM  
hmm, read the lyrics, have the song in the truck on my ipod and I still had farked it up...so Seth was her brother and she killed his friend Andy AND his whoring wife but Seth got blamed for it.

/so what happened to the Amos boy?

//Colonel Mustard in the Library with a candlestick?

You are right. It is about the night that Andy fried in the electric chair for something he didn't do.

I still don't get it. Why did Andy's little sister gun down Seth? To protect Andy? Was Seth sometime before cheating with Andy's wife?

This is why I don't live in the south.

I suppose if you want to make sure someone's dead....

Vicki Lawrence
Words and Music by her husband, Bobby Russell


holy shiat, those are the lyrics? that's rough. good song. sad ending. thank you for posting. songs sure do pack a different punch when you pay attention and don't just hum.

too bad she didn't cap the judge instead of Andy. the brother must have been super drunk to use a gun to flag down the cops though; song does give a good accounting that down South corruption sometimes didn't care what color you were. guess that's true all over.

Hmmm... I think I'll pass. I'm sure it was a fine pic back in its time, but it just doesn't hold up to today's. It's kinda like seeing photos of food in a 1950's cookbook -- you know it must have looked appetizing at the time, but now: Yechhhh!

Not true. I know because I was behind a tree watching him watch somebody drown somebody. I just chose not to write a song about it. I swear.
