Dwight Yoakam — Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues lyrics

(danny o'keefe)

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
Said find the sunshine leave the rain
They say 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
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/dwight-yoakam-good-time-charlies-got-the-blues-lyrics.html ]
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
