THERE COMES A TIME IN A YOUNG MAN'S LIFE WHEN HE SHOULD SETTLE DOWN, BUT I'VE GOTTA CATCH THAT NEXT FAIR DEAL BEFORE IT HITS THE GROUND - I'M ON MY WAY, I'M GONNA MAKE IT PAY. GO ASK ANYBODY, IT'S HAPPENED MORE THAN ONCE - I'LL STEP OUT FOR A MINUTE AND BE GONE FOR SEVEN MONTHS - GOT A LITTLE BIT LOST, I FORGOT MY WATCH. OH, I'M GOING AWAY, I'M GOING TO STAY, AND NEVER COMING HOME. GONNA MISS ME, HONEY, IN THE DAYS TO COME, WHEN THE WINTER WIND BEGINS TO BLOW, THE GROUND IS COVERED UP WITH SNOW - YOU'LL THINK OF ME, GONNA WISH ME BACK, YOUR LOVING MAN. YOU'RE GONNA MISS ME HONEY IN THE DAY, DAYS, DAYS TO COME. I'M LIVIN' IN THE HIGHWAYS, JUST TRYIN' TO CATCH A CAR. IT'S

"WELL, I'M GOING WHEREVER YOU ARE - I'M SATISFIED, JUST TO TAKE A LITTLE RIDE." LIFE'S A LOT LIKE POKER, YOU CAN'T WIN IF YOU DON'T PLAY - GONNA BANKROLL MY TOMORROW AND PAWN MY YESTERDAY. I'LL TRUST IN GOD, BUT I'LL CUT THE CARDS. OH, I'M GOING AWAY, I'M GOING TO STAY, AND NEVER COMING HOME.

OLD CHARLIE COULD DRINK YOU UNDER THE TABLE, OLD CHARLIE COULD SING ALL NIGHT LONG. OLD CHARLIE HAD FUN, BUT HIS RAMBLING IS DONE, AND THIS IS OLD CHARLIE'S LAST SONG. OLD CHARLIE MADE MOONSHINE FOR THE LOCAL BOOTLEGGERS, CHARLIE, HE HAD HIM A STILL. AND THE MONEY HE MADE PAID FOR A GOOD BANJO - YOU CAN'T MAKE THAT WAGE DOWN AT THE MILL.
