lyrics

I've given in to all this madness
That's tried so hard to break my stride
I've given in to all these demons
That do not want me alive
I've lived so hard it seems for ages
For someone's pity
I cannot tell
From time to time I go through stages
When I wish I was anybody else

My name is Charlie, I am an artist
I play the guitar, a little ivory too
I am a pothead, I am a poet
I am more miserable than you

Lord how I wish I had me a woman
She'd be so happy and I would be too
She'd feel empowered
I'd be her husband
We'd have a big house and a boy named Sue
Instead I'm paying some unlucky stranger
Their faces change but they all have the nerve
to say where you going, boy when you leaving
That'll cost you extra, you ol' filthy perv'

My name is Charlie, I am an artist
I play the guitar, a little banjo too
I am a pothead, I am a poet
I am more miserable than you

about

CHUCHO Fort Worth, Texas

Chucho is the dark dramatic pause that preludes the stranger you just met telling you she's pregnant. You said all you did was talk. Someone is lying, or God is involved. Either way, we should talk more. Chucho.
