Everybody's gone away,
                           C
Leave this town that gonna stay
                           D7sus4 D7
There's not a soul I know around.
                     G
Everybody's leaving' town.

Some caught a freight, some caught a plane.
Find the sunshine, leave the rain?
They said this town will waste your time.
I guess they're right, it's wasting mine.

                Am7             Cmaj7/g
     Some gotta win, some gotta lose,
     D7sus4                       G
      Good time Charlie's got the blues.

Instrumental verse

You know my heart keeps telling 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've got my pills to ease the pain,
Can't find a friend to ease the rain.
I love to try and settle down.
But everybody s leaving town.

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