Charlie Dunn Lyrics

Artist: Jerry Jeff Walker
Album: Great Gonzos

Well if you're ever in Austin Texas
A little run down on your sole
I'm gonna tell you the name of an old man to see
I'm gonna tell you right where to go
He's working in Capitol Saddlery
He's sewing in the back of the place
His name is Charlie Dunn the little frail one
With the smile and the leathery face

Charlie Dunn, he's the one to see
Charlie done the boots that are on my feet
It makes Charlie real pleased to see me walkin in these
Charlie Dunn, he's the one to see

Charlie's been makin boots over there
He says about fifty some odd years
And once you wear a pair of his hand-mades
Boy, you'll never wear no store-bought pair
Charlie can tell what's wrong with your feet
Just by feelin' 'em with his hands
And he can take a look at the boots you wear
And know a whole lot about you, man


And ol' Buck's up front he's countin' up his gold
Charlie's in the back patchin' up the soles
All the people comin' in smilin' at him
They all wonder how's ol' Charlie been
Buck's makin' change but he never ever sees no one
And he never understood a good thing ol' Charlie done

Charlie's never had his name on a sign
He don't put a mark in the boot
He just hopes you can remember him
'Bout the same way that he does you
He keeps your measurements in a little book
So you can order more boots later on
Well I'm writin' down ol' Charlie's size
I'm a makin' him up a song


Buck's up front but he never ever sees no one
And he never understood a good thing ol' Charlie done
