Candy Apple Red
Bill Anderson
Album: Bill Anderson Sings (Decca)

Capo 1

Intro: D-A7-D

D                             A7                  D
He came speeding through the town each day at sundown
                          G          D
And his car was painted candy apple red
         G                                 D
He was coming there to see the sheriff's daughter
And the sheriff didn't know it so they said

          D               A7                    D
Time and time again the sheriff tried to catch him
                      G            D
But he always speeded up and got away
           G                             D
That old county jail stood patiently a waiting
                            A7                 D
And the sheriff vowed he'd put him there some day

D                 G                     D
Well there goes candy apple red that's what the people said
        A7                              G           D
If he doesn't slow it down a bit he's gonna end up dead
          G                             D
And the sheriff's daughter said she'd rather end up dead
         A7                           D
Than to live without her candy apple red

Inst: D-A7-D

D                        A7                D
So the sheriff built a barricade to catch him
                          G            D  
And he sat there at the limits of the town
          G                             D
But the sheriff's daughter had already met him
And had married him before the sun went down

           D              A7                 D
When the sheriff saw him comin' down the highway
                                G                  D 
He saw they couldn't stop and quickly caught his breath
          G                             D
As they crashed the barricade the car exploded
                      A7                 D
And the boy and girl went to a flaming death

D                 G                     D
Well there goes candy apple red that's what the people said
     A7                             G                 D
He doesn't slow it down at all and now he lies there dead
             G                            D
While the sheriff's bowed his head, his daughter lay there dead
  A7                                D
Cradled in the arms of candy apple red
