Some caught a freight, some caught a plane
Find the sunshine, leave the rain
They said this town'll waste your time
I guess they're right, it's wasting mine


Refrain:

Some gotta win

Some gotta lose
G
Good time Charlie's got the blues

You know my heart keeps telling me
You're not a kid at thirty-three
You play around you lose your wife
You play too long you lose your life

I've got my pills to ease the pain
Can't find a thing to ease the rain
I'd love to try and settle down
But everybody's leaving town

Kind of a finger pickin' blues shuffle.
I beat the G bass note softer on the
second and third count to keep the beat.
