Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues
Everybody's going away
Said they're moving to L.A.
There's not a soul I know around
Everybody's leaving town

Some caught a freight, some caught a plane
Find the sunshine, leave the rain
They said this town will waste your time
I guess they're right, it's wasting mine

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

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

I got my pills to ease the pain
Can't find a thing to ease the rain
I'd love to try and settle down
But everybody's leaving town

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