Goodtime Charlie's Got the Blues
By Charlie Rich
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's a waste time
I guess they're right, it's wasting mine
Some gotta win! Some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues
You know my heart keeps tellin' me,
Youíre not a kid at thirty-three.
You play around you'll lose your wife.
You play too long you'll lose your life!
Iíve got my pills to ease the pain,
Canít find a friend to ease the rain.
I know I should try and settle down.
Everybodyís leaving town.
Good time Charlie's got the blues!
