Stand By Your Man - Goodbye Earl - Netflix

“Goodbye Earl”, written by Dennis Linde, is a country music song. Initially recorded by the band Sons of the Desert for an unreleased album in the late 1990s, the song gained fame when it was recorded by the Dixie Chicks on their fifth studio album, Fly. After charting from unsolicited airplay in late 1999, the song was released as that album's third single in 2000, peaking at #13 on Billboard's Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts. The CD single includes an ironic 'B-Side' cover of “Stand By Your Man” by Tammy Wynette.

The song uses black comedy to tell the story of two best friends from high school, and what became of them after graduation. Mary Ann leaves the town where they were raised (probably to pursue her fortune), while Wanda settles on marrying a man named “Earl,” who physically abuses her repeatedly. Wanda files for divorce based on the domestic violence, but “Earl walked right through that restraining order and put her in intensive care.” Mary Ann flies in from Atlanta, Georgia, and after a discussion, the women decide “that Earl had to die,” and they kill him, by poisoning or drugging his black-eyed peas (most likely cyanide, as it is known to kill quickly when consumed). The song plot has been described as a cross between the films Fried Green Tomatoes and Thelma and Louise. Linde plays acoustic guitar on the song, while producers Blake Chancey and Paul Worley, along with Charlie Robison, provide backing vocals. It is composed in the key of C major with a vocal range of G3-C5 and a main chord pattern of C-F/C-C-Gsus4.
