Words & Music by Jerry Jeff Walker From Jerry Jeff walker's
Verse 1: [D] Well if you're ever in Austin Texas A [G] little run down on your [D] sole I'm [G] gonna tell you the name of an old [D] man to see I'm gonna [E7] tell you right where to go [A] He's [D] working in Capitol Saddlery He's [G] sewing in the back of the [D] place His name is [G] Charlie Dunn the little [D] frail one With the [A] smile and the leathery [D] face
Chorus: Charlie [G] Dunn, he's the one to [D] see Charlie [A] done the boots that are on my [D] feet [D7] It makes [G] Charlie real pleased to see me [D] walkin in these Charlie [A] Dunn, he's the one to [D] see
Verse 2: [D] Charlie's been makin boots over there He says [G] about fifty some odd [D] years And [G] once you wear a pair of his [D] hand-mades Boy, you'll [E7] never wear no store-bought [A] pair [D] Charlie can tell what's wrong with your feet Just by [G] feelin' 'em with his [D] hands And [G] he can take a look at the [D] boots you wear And know a [A] whole lot about you, [D] man
Repeat chorus:
And ol' [Bm] Buck's up front he's countin' up his gold [A] Charlie's in the back patchin' up the soles All the [Bm] people comin' in smilin' at him They [A] all wonder how's ol' [A7] Charlie been [G] Buck's makin' change but he [A] never ever sees no [D] one [Bm] And he [G] never understood a [A] good thing ol' Charlie [D] done
Verse 3: [D] Charlie's never had his name on a sign He [G] don't put a mark in the [D] boot He [G] just hopes you can [D] remember him 'Bout the [E7] same way that he does [A] you He [D] keeps your measurements in a little book So you can [G] order more boots later [D] on Well [G] I'm writin' down ol' [D] Charlie's size I'm a [A] makin' him up a [D] song
Repeat chorus:
[G] Buck's up front but he [A] never ever sees no [D] one [Bm] And he [G] never understood a [A] good thing ol' Charlie [D] done
