Tell The Angels of Montgomery "Goodtime" Charlie's Coming Home

BY Chuck RitenouR 3-12-2K3 (wrote this for Maddox Saunders after his suicide..he was a great friend)

verse 1:

I was wrecked and ragged on aTuesday afternoon

waiting at the station, my bus was leaving soon.

Thirty dollars in my pocket, a one way ticket in my hand.

A book written by a prophet searching for the promised land..wooo oh oh

verse 2:

I got the news on Friday evening, they said you had passed away

The service weas held on Sunday, your friends gathered by your grave.

Now there's no one waiting for me, seems I've always been alone

So tell the angels of Montgomery "Goodtime" Charlie's coming home.

Tell the angels of Montgomery "Goodtime" Charlie's coming home.

Verse 3:

I spent the summer in New England, wintered in New Mexico

ended up in Dallas, Texas near the end of my rope

working in a Howard Johnsons' and sleeping in this bed I've made

til I got the news on Friday saying you had passed away...wooo oh oh

verse 4:

Seems like years since I saw you standing at your trailer door

Back then we had dreams, we hadvisions, I don't have them any more.

you can say that I'm a victim and I've no sins to atone

Just tell the angels of Montgomery "Goodtime" Charlie's coming home

tell the angels of Montgomery "Goodtime" Charlie's coming home.

the end
