Goodtime Charlie's Got the Blues
By Charlie Rich

Everybody's gone away.
Said they're movin' to L.A.
There's not a soul I know around.
Everybody's leavin' town!

Some caught a freight. Some caught a plane.
Find the sunshine, Leave the rain?
They said this town's a waste time.
I guess they're right, it's wasting mine!

Some gotta win! Some gotta lose!
Good time Charlie's got the blues!

You know my heart keeps tellin' me,
You're not a kid at thirty-three.
You play around you'll lose your wife.
You play too long you'll lose your life!

I've got my pills to ease the pain,
Can't find a friend to ease the rain.
I know I should try and settle down.
Everybody's leaving town.

Some gotta win! Some gotta lose!
Good time Charlie's got the blues!
Good time Charlie's got the blues!
