Jerry Lee Lewis – Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues lyrics

Hey everybody's gone away
They said they're movin to L.A.
There's not a soul I know around
Everybody's leavin' town

Some caught a plane, some caught a train
Can't find no sunshine, just the rain
Oh Lord, I love to settle down
Everybody's leavin' town

Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Hey, 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 got my pills to ease my pain
Ain't worried about the sunshine or the rain
Someday I just might settle down
But right now, I'm gonna do my runnin' around

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