Goodtime Charlie's Got the Blues
Blues version- By Mcmurrin and Johnson
Everybody's gone away.
They're all movin' to L. A.
There's not a soul I know around.
All my friends are leavin' town.
Some caught freight, some caught a plane.
To find the sunshine and ease the rain..
They say this town's a waste time.
I guess they're right, I've wasted mine!
Some win, some lose.
Good time Charlie got the blues.
You know my heart keeps tellin' me,
Youre not no 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 thing to ease the rain.
Some day I'll settle down.
All my friends are leaving town.
Some win, some lose
Good time Charlies got the blues.
Good time Charlie's got the blues
Good time Charlie's got the blues.
Some win, some lose
Good time Charlie got the blues.
Good time Charlie's got the blues
Good time Charlie got the blues
