The Carter Boys Written and recorded by Tom T. Hall
C F C The Carter boys were born one and after another G7 C In a little ol' country place F C I was the last and the death of my mother G7 C And I know it was a pretty bad trait
F C We'd get to drinking I'd do the singing G7 C And they taught me to chase girls and cuss F C We played poker I'd do the dealing G7 C I was the only one we could trust
F G7 C And there were six of us all together F G7 C And that's how we stood all the time F G7 C Six of us all together F G7 C The Carter boys were brothers of mine
F C We had an ol' car that we kept tied together G7 C With pieces of baling wire and hope F C Well they knew when we got there and they knew when we left G7 C They could tell by the noise and the smoke
F C Anytime the sheriff had nothing to do G7 C He'd get out and chase us around F C The old women prayed the old men laughed G7 C And the middle aged people all frowned
F C Daddy was a preacher and the Lord knows he tried G7 C Gave us everything he could afford F C We lost a lotta battles but daddy always said
G7 C The only thing we feared was the Lord
F C Well as I look back through the long lean years G7 C I wonder how we ever survived F C All of that hard work all of those women G7 C And all of those pistols and knives
