That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia. That's the night that they hung an innocent man. Well, don't trust your soul to no backwoods, southern lawyer. Cos the judge in the town's got blood stains on his hands. Well Andy got scared, and left the bar, Walkin' on home, 'cos he didn't live far. You see, Andy didn't have many friends, And he just lost him one. Brother thought his wife musta left town, So he went home and finally found, The only thing Papa had left him, and that was a gun. He went off to Andy's house

It’s amazing that Lawrence spent 11 years on a top-rated TV show, but most people I know would never peg Vicki Lawrence (or Mama ) as the singer of The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia. Perhaps that’s because it was the pre-MTV and YouTube eras and I had never seen video of Lawrence singing the song. Certainly I never saw her sing The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia on an episode of the Carol Burnett show, and I think I saw nearly all of them through re-runs in the 1970s and early 1980s

They effortlessly give out good performances and make this somewhat interesting. Also McNichol play a singer and she was a good singer so she belts out a few songs. Also, in case any one is interested, Quaid bares his butt in this one.
