​Charlie and Suzie

This song is by David Knopfler and appears on the album Cut the Wire (1986).

Charlie was a backwoods boy
Living with his backwoods girl
When Suzie had a baby boy
Charlie was as proud as hell.

Living in the backwoods
Charlie was as happy as could be
With his baby boy he wasn't lonely no more
No, Charlie had a family

And the seasons change

He says: "Baby you're my pride and joy
Suzie you're the one I love"
He raise his eyes to the smoky skies
And he thank the lord above

Then trouble comes round
Suzie walkin' out of the door
Leaves a baby boy and a simple note
Says she won't be back no more

How the winds change.
