Story behind the song
Heard this ages ago of a Peter Case album. Loved it, and came up with my own version that really doesn't sound a lot like his.
Lyrics
If you see Charlie James Walkin' down the road Please don't tell him Way you see me go Had whole lot of trouble Since I saw you last Oh I don't my future I don't wanna see my past Had whole lotta money One day, one day The very next day I did not have a dime Looking down the road As far as I can see You know I thought I saw My old time used to be In a whole lotta trouble One day one day The very next day I did not have a dime Lookin' on down the road As far as I can see I thought I saw My Old time used to be If you see Charlie James Walkin' down the road Please don't tell him Which way you see me go Please don't tell him Which way you see me go Please don't tell him Which way you see me go.
