Chuckie's Gone

Album: Drinks After Work (2013)
  • Twister came through our home town and
    Tore a lot of peoples houses down
    Always happens in the spring but
    This time we missed everything.
    I put the band back on the road and we
    Still got a lot of wild seeds to sow
    LB prayed and Michael cried it was the
    First time without you by my side.

    Stage goes up, stage goes down
    Buses roll through another town and
    Words to write and gigs to play and
    You'll always, be a song away
    Your bass is there where you used to stand
    And even though we got a killer band
    Still look up in the middle of a song
    And realize
    Chuckie's gone.

    Chuckie's gone

    Never got to say goodbye, and thank you
    For the times I cried laughin'
    You were quicker than the rest
    Fastest gun slinger in the West
    I hope you find peace from your pain
    Must've been like a hurricane so
    Fly away with all our love
    Sure wish you didn't need that stuff.

    Stage goes up stage goes down
    The buses roll through another town and
    His words to write and gigs to play
    And you'll always be a song away.
    Your bass is there where you used to stand
    And even though we got a killer band
    I still look up in the middle of a song
    And realize
    Chuckie's gone.
