Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
*Everybody's gone away
*Said they're movin' to LA

Boys star right inside the ring
Allemande the corner and you weave the ring
**Some caught a freight, some caught a plane
**Find the sunshine, leave the rain
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*You know my heart keeps tellin' me
*You're not a kid at thirty-three


**I got my pills to ease the pain
**Can't find a thing to ease the rain


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (Sides) promenade 3/4 round
Sides (Heads) left square thru 3 hands and now
Swing thru that outside pair, boy run right
Bend the line, touch 1/4, circulate
Boy run right and the corner swing
You promenade around the ring
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues


TAG

Allemande left and swing
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Good time Charlie's got the blues

Goodtime Charlie's Got The Blues
 
 

Everybody's goin' away
Said they're movin' to LA
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's a waste of time
I guess they're right, it's wastin' mine

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

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

I 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 leavin' town

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

(whistling to end)

Lyrics by Danny O'Keefe.
Recorded by Danny O'Keefe; Elvis Presley.
