OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Everybody's gone away, say they're moving to L.A.
Allemande left you dosado
Left allemande and weave the ring
**Some caught a freight, some caught a plane
Swing a little girl and you promenade
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Goodtime Charlie's got the blues


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads you gonna promenade halfway
Down the middle with a left square thru I say
All the way around and do a left swing thru
Girls run left and ferris wheel
Centers wheel around and the corner swing
Swing a little girl and you promenade
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Goodtime Charlie's got the blues


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*You know my heart keeps telling me, you're not a kid at 33

**I've got my pills to ease the pain

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.
