Charlie Poole came from my home town
left this earth before i touched the ground
a rounder and rambler,when the deal went down
Charlie Poole,where are you now?

Played the Banjo 3 fingered style
young girls would dance and the old folks smile
money made him crazy,whiskey made him wild
Charlie Poole,where are you now?

BRIDGE

they say that GOD takes care of drunks and fools
he really met his match when he bumped in to
Charlie Poole

Charlie Poole was buried in the spring
as a sad and lonely church rang
he never had the chance to be old and in the way
but they would not soon forget his name

repeat first verse
