good time charlie’s got the blues lyrics – dwight yoakam

good time charlie’s got the blues

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 will waste your time
guess they’re right — it’s wasting mine

[chorus:]
some gotta win, some gotta lose
good time charlie’s got the blues
good time charlie’s got the blues

[instrumental]

y’know my heart keeps tellin’ me
you’re not a kid at 33
y’play around y’lose your wife,
y’play too long, you lose your life

got my pills t’ease the pain,
can’t find a thing to stop the rain
i’d love t’try and settle down,
but everybody’s leavin’ town

[chorus:]
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
got the blues, got the blues
got the blues, got the blues
good time charlie’s got the blues
got the blues, got the blues
