CAPO II

INTRO: D  G  A7  D  D7  G  D  A7  D  D7


CHORUS:
    G                       D
Oh, Charlie could drink you under the table
    A7                           D     D7
Oh, Charlie could sing all night long
    G                        D
Oh, Charlie had fun, but his ramblin' is done
    A7                         D      D7
And this is ol' Charlie's last song


Oh, Charlie would fight once he hit a policeman
They throwed him in jail 'cause that's wrong
When he broke out, the cops took him on home
And ol' Charlie, he played them a song


CHORUS


Oh, Charlie made moonshine for the local bootleggers
Charlie, he had him a still
And the money he made paid for a good banjo
Can't make that wage down at the mill


CHORUS


INTRO


Oh, Charlie could never hold onto a dollar
He got famous but he never got rich
And he never amounted to much of a husband
That banjo playin' son of a b***h


CHORUS


Oh, Charlie once said that he had a black heart
All except a small spot that was red
If he drinks anymore, that red spot will turn black
And old Charlie at last will be dead


CHORUS


INTRO out
