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
Find the sunshine leave the rain
They said this town will waste your time
Guess they're right ---- it's wasting mine


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

why'know my heart keeps tellin' me
You're not a kid at 33
why'play around why'lose your wife,
why'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
