INTRO SOLO

If you see Charlie James coming down the road
Would you please, don't tell him, which-a-way you see me go

In the morning soon, in the morning soon
Yes, I'm going back to Houston in the morning soon

Had a whole lot of money, one day, one day
Next day, I didn't have a dime

SOLO

Looked down the road, just as far as I could see
And I thought I spied my old-time used-to-be

SOLO

Had a whole lot of trouble, one day, one day
Next day I didn't know what to do

SOLO

Looked down the road, just as far as I could see
And I thought I spied my old-time used-to-be

SOLO

When a man gets in trouble, everybody throws him down
Exceptin' for his friends and they won't come around

Nobody ever knows you, when you're down and out
Ask them for a favor, they will know, it's all about

SOLO

Well, you may go, you may try to stay
But you'll be back, some old rainy day

SOLO AND CODA
