Everybody's gone away said they're moving to LA
There's not a soul I know around everybody's leaving town
Some caught a freight some caught a plane

Play around you lose your wife you play too long you lose your life
I got my pills to ease the pain can't find a thing to ease the rain
Sometimes I'd like to try and settle down but everybody's leaving town
Some got to win some got to lose good time Charlies got the blues
