F    A7       
hey Charlie I'm pregnant
and living on the 9th street
           F    A7  
right above a dirty bookstore
of euclid avenue
F    A7  
and I stopped takin dope
and I quit drinkin whiskey
      Gm7         F/A
and my old man plays the trombone
       Bb9            Bb/C     F   C11  F 
and works out at the track
 F    A7  
and he says that he loves me
even though its not his baby
F    A7  
and he says that he'll raise him up
like he would his own son
F    A7  
and he gave me a ring
   Dm7        F/Eb
that was worn by his mother
   Bb9                 Bb/C 
and he takes me out dancin
    Bb9   C11       F     C11   F  C11  
every saturday night.
F    A7  
and hey Charlie I think about you
everytime I pass a fillin station
F    A7  
on account of all the grease
you used to wear in your hair
F    A7  
and I still have that record
Dm7      F/Eb
of little anthony & the Imperials
but someone stole my record player
  C11                             F    C11       F  A7
now how do you like that?
Dm7   F/C 
hey Charlie I almost went crazy
Gm7     Fadd9/A
after mario got busted
Bb9         Bb/C       C7
so I  went back to omaha to
F    A7  
live with my folks
Dm7      F/C
but everyone I used to know
was either dead or in prison

Gm7         Fadd9/A
so I  came back to Minneapolis
Bb9         Bb/C   C7
this time I think i'm gonna stay.

F    A7 
hey Charlie I think I'm happy
for the first time since my accident
F    A7 
and I wish I had all the money
that we used to spend on dope
F    A7 
i'd buy me a used car lot
  Dm7  F/Eb
and I wouldn't sell any of em
i'd just drive a different car
C11         Bb9             C11
every day, dependin on how I feel
   F    C11         F   C11 

F    A7 
hey Charlie for chrissakes
do you want to know the truth of it?
F    A7 
i don't have a husband
he don't play the trombone
F    A7 
and I need to borrow money
to pay this lawyer
Charlie, hey
i'll be eligible for parole
   C11     F
come valentines day
