G
G
Me and my best friend Lillian
G
And her blue tick hound dog Gideon
C
Sittin' on the front porch' coolin' in the shade
G
Singin' every song that the radio played
D
Waitin' for the Alabama sun to go down
                C
Two red dirt girls in a red dirt town
                  G
Me and Lillian
            G                                         D                        C
Just across the line and a little southeast of Meridian

G
She loved her brother I remember back when
                  G
He was fixin' up a '49 Indian
       C
He told her "Little sister, gonna ride the wind
G
Up around the moon and back again"
           D
He never got farther than Vietnam
           C
I was standin' there with her when the telegram come
            G
For Lillian
                        G                                                          D               C
Now he's lyin' somewhere about a million miles from Meridian

                                            D
She said "There's not much hope for a red dirt girl
C
Somewhere out there is a great big world,
                 G
that's where I'm bound
                    D                                                                       C
And the stars might fall on Alabama, but one of these days
                                                        G
I'm gonna swing my hammer down
                                       D
Away from this red dirt town
                                          G
I'm gonna make a joyful sound"

G
She grew up tall and she grew up thin
G
Buried that old dog Gideon
          C
By a crepe myrtle bush at the back of the yard
             G
Her daddy turned mean and her mama leaned hard
D
Got in trouble with a boy from town
C
Figured that she might as well settle down
                    G
So she dug right in
                        G                                 D                         C
Across a red dirt line just a little southeast of Meridian

D
She tried hard to love him but it never did take
C
It was just another way for a heart to break
                     G
So she learned to bend
                    D
But one thing they don't tell you 'bout the blues when you got 'em
            C
You keep on fallin' 'cause there ain't no bottom
              G                                                D
There ain't no end, at least not for Lillian

G
Nobody knows when she started her skid
                       G
She was only 27 and she had 5 kids
C
Coulda' been the whiskey, coulda been the pills
G
Coulda been the dream she was tryin' to kill
                      D
But there won't be a mention in the news of the world
                           C                                                               G
About the life and the death of a red dirt girl named Lillian

                             G                                D                     C
Who never got any farther across the line than Meridian

                         D
Now the stars still fall on Alabama
            C                                                       G
The night she finally laid that hammer down
D                                                   G
Without a sound, in the red dirt ground
