Charlie Dunn
Jerry Jeff Walker

 [Verse 1]

 D
 Well if you're ever in Austin Texas
          G                D
 A little run down on your sole
           G                           D
 I'm gonna tell you the name of an old man to see
           E7                      A
 I'm gonna tell you right where to go.
      D
 He's working in Capitol Saddlery
      G                         D
 He's sewing in the back of the place 
             G                       D
 His name is Charlie Dunn the little frail one
          A                      D
 With the smile and the leathery face.

 [Chorus]

         G                     D
 Charlie Dunn, he's the one to see
         A                             D    D7
 Charlie done the boots that are on my feet.
          G                              D
 It makes Charlie real pleased to see me walkin' in these
         A                     D
 Charlie Dunn, he's the one to see.

 [Verse 2]
 
 D
 Charlie's been makin' boots over there
               G              D
 He says 'bout fifty some odd years.
     G                           D
 And once you wear a pair of his hand-mades boy, 
        E7                         A
 you'll never wear no store-bought pair.
 D
 Charlie can tell what's wrong with your feet
         G                    D
 Just by feelin' 'em with his hands.
     G                         D
 And he can take a look at the boots you wear
            A                   D
 And know a whole lot about the man.

 [Chorus]

         G                     D
 Charlie Dunn, he's the one to see
         A                             D    D7
 Charlie done the boots that are on my feet.
          G                              D
 It makes Charlie real pleased to see me walkin' in these
         A                     D
 Charlie Dunn, he's the one to see.


 [Bridge]

         Bm
 And ol' Buck's up front he's countin' up his gold
 A
 Charlie's in the back patchin' up the soles
         Bm
 All the people comin' in smilin' at him
          A                A7
 They all wonder how's ol' Charlie been.
 G                           A                  D    Bm
 Buck's makin' change but he never ever sees no one
        G                  A                      D
 And he never understood a good thing ol' Charlie done.

 [Instrumental]

 [Verse 3]

 D
 Charlie's never had his name on a sign
    G                       D
 He don't put a mark in the boot.
         G               D
 He just hopes you can remember him
           E7                    A
 'Bout the same way that he does you.
    D
 He keeps your measurements in a lit-tle book
            G                      D
 So you can order more boots later on.
          G                D
 Well I'm writin' down ol' Charlie's size
       A               D
 I'm a makin' him up a song.

 [Chorus]

         G                     D
 Charlie Dunn, he's the one to see
         A                             D    D7
 Charlie done the boots that are on my feet.
          G                              D
 It makes Charlie real pleased to see me walkin' in these
         A                     D
 Charlie Dunn, he's the one to see.

[Outro] 

 G                      A                  D    Bm
 Buck's up front but he never ever sees no one
        G                  A                      D
 And he never understood a good thing ol' Charlie done.
