Subject: Lyr Req: A Town Could Accuse
From: Beer
Date: 25 Aug 09 - 08:44 PM

Spoke to a friend earlier this evening and while we were talking about music I asked what inspired him to start playing. He said that he heard a song in a bar and it struck him that he would like to learn to play that particular song. I must admit that even though I was a country music lover years ago, this tune I cannot remember. Any help would be appreciated.

Be Careful Of Stones That You Throw - Luke the Drifter (Hank Williams)

A town can accuse
Can carry bad news
The seeds of distrust it will sow
Unless you made no mistakes in your life
Be careful of stones that you throw

Recitation
I forget the beginning but

"That girl down the street is painted and hard
She drinks and she swears quite a lot.
She knows not to talk to my child and me."
My neighbor just smiled and I thought

CHORUS

A car speeding by
And the screeching of breaks
A sound to make your blood chill
My neighbor's one child
Was pulled from the path
And saved by a girl lying still
The young child was safe and my neighbor cried out
"Oh who was that brave girl so sweeet"
I covered the crushed broken body and said
"The bad girl who lives down the street."

BE CAREFUL OF STONES THAT YOU THROW
Written by Bonnie Dodd
Recorded by Hank Williams

CHORUS: A tongue can accuse and carry bad news.
The seeds of distrust it will sow,
But unless you've made no mistakes in your life,
Be careful of stones that you throw.

SPOKEN: A neighbor was passing my garden one time.
She stopped and I knew right away
That it was gossip, not flowers, she had on her mind,
And this is what I heard my neighbor say:

"That girl down the street should be run from our midst.
She drinks and she talks quite a lot.
She knows not to speak to my child or to me."
My neighbor then smiled and I thought: CHORUS

SPOKEN: A car speeding by and the screaming of brakes—
A sound that made my blood chill,
For my neighbor's one child was pulled from the path
And saved by a girl lying still.

The child was unhurt and my neighbor cried out:
"Oh, who was that brave girl so sweet?"
I covered the crushed broken body and said:
"The bad girl who lived down the street." CHORUS

[Recorded by many people, including Little Jimmy Dickins, Dion & the Belmonts, Waylon Jennings, Johnny O'Keefe, Preacher Jack, Red Sovine, The Staple Singers, Porter Wagoner, Hank Williams, and Hank Williams Jr.]
