Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues
Danny O'Keefe (metonymo tab)

This is the "fretkillr" version, you can find it on youtube. The instrumental
part is also tabbed and has the same chord progression as the verse. Picking
should be accurate, strumming patterns may differ.

p= pull off
h= hammer down
x= muted
v= vibrato
/ and \= slide



Intro: same as the first 4 beats of the verse.

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.
