Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
Everybody's going away say they're moving to L.A.
Allemande left and allemande thar forward 2, the 4 gents star
Shoot the star and weave by two
Swing the partner, promenade
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Goodtime Charlie's got the blues


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru from where you are
And with the sides a right hand star
Heads star left around and go
Round the corner dosado
Swing thru 2 by 2, boys trade
Swing the corner, promenade
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Goodtime Charlie's got the blues


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Plus, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru, 4 hands you go
Round the corner dosado
Swing thru two by two, girls fold
Peel the top and when you're through, right and left thru
Square thru 3/4 round now
Swing the corner, promenade
Some gotta win, some gotta lose
Goodtime Charlie's got the blues

Goodtime Charlie's Got The Blues Lyrics ID: 1342

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.
