Charley Bostocks liked drinkin’,
An’ stayin’ out all night long
Charley bostocks liked drinkin’,
An’ stayin’ out all night long,
Yes, but now Charley Bostocks, he is dead an’ gone

His woman said “Stop your drinkin’,
Soon I will have your child”
His woman said “Stop your drinkin’,
Soon I will have your child.”
He told everybody she didn’t want him, never told the reason why

Charley liked drinkin’ at the Railway,
Never meant no one no harm
Charley liked drinkin’ at the Railway,
Never meant no one no harm
You know poor Charley Bostocks died, with a needle hangin’ in his arm

I was down at the graveyard,
When the people was standin’ round cryin
I was down at the graveyard,
When the people was standin’ round cryin
Charley Bostocks’ woman by my side, and his friends wouldn’t pay her no mind

Hmmmmmmm.. Hmmm Hmmm
Hmmmmmmm.. Hmmm Hmmm
