Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


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
[Chorus:]

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

Chorus

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

[Chorus:]
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good Time Charlie's got the blues
Good Time Charlie's got the blues

[Instrumental]

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
Got the blues, got the blues

"Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues"

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

[Chorus:]
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good Time Charlie's got the blues
Good Time Charlie's got the blues

[Instrumental]

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
Got the blues, got the blues

Play around you lose your wife, play to long you lose your life...what a great line and so true

I'd say this is showing a hell of alot of respect to Dannie O'Keefe.

Bernie Bennett

Dwight continues to be a classic in his own time. A genius. He takes a 45 year old staple recorded by dang near everybody and makes it his own thing. Listening to him is like listening to it for the first time.

DealReal12

Bernie Bennett everything you say is true BUT you neglected the singer songwriter who WROTE THIS TUNE, the EXCELLENT Danny O’Keefe who did the BEST VERSION by far. Now, I feel better.

Julia Whiteside

Yes Dwight is The Most Talented Country Music Singer Ever!

wheelmanstan

johnny cash said he was his favorite

Walter Urban

1967-Danny O'Keefe, originally wrote and recorded it.  It is definitely a classic.

terrizosia

He's the only artist I can watch over and over.

Kathy Green

Mark Baggett
