Everybody's gone away said they're moving to LA
Some caught a freight some caught a plane find the sunshine leave the rain
Some gotta win some gotta lose good time Charlie's got the blues

You play around you lose your wife you play too long you lose your life
I'd love to try and settle down but everybody's leavin' town
Good time Charlie's got the blues
