Hollies - Charlie And Fred Lyrics

  • The Hollies
  • Charlie and Fred
  • (Allan Clarke/Tony Hicks/Graham Nash)
  • Track 8 on album 'Butterfly' october 1967
  • He rides on his horse and cart, Charlie does.
  • working from six until nine.
  • Collecting old rags and used bicycles,
  • old iron of description of any kind.
  • Here comes Charlie, Charlie the Ragman.
  • Throw out your old clothes for Charlie and Fred.
  • Earning a living off things we've discarded.
  • Earning enough for the board and the bed.
  • You hear him shout "Rags and old iron."
  • Everyone knows him that way.
  • Once a week, they come 'round calling.
  • How long it's been, I can't say.
  • chorus
  • They live all alone in a hovel.
  • He puts his money away.
  • Taking enough to just live on,
  • and at the end of the day
  • he's saving enough
  • to put Fred out to graze.
  • (repeat)
  • Has anyone seen Charlie lately?
  • Charlie just ain't been around.
  • Everyone's seen Fred is grazing,
  • chewing the grass from the ground.
  • Children say Charlie is happy
  • giving balloons to the angels instead.
  • Where is Charlie, Charlie the Ragman?
  • Don't throw your clothes out.
