There was a boy named Charlie
Who surely left his home
To seek his luck in working
And live without a moan

So our brave young Charlie
Took off to find a place
Where he was free, but fortune
Was taking other ways

He met a man named Crowley
Who seemed honest and fine
He offered poor young Charlie
A way to earn a dime

The work was pretty hard but
He did the best he could
He lived a better life than
Young Charlie thought he would

But one dark night some men came
Threw Charlie off his bed
He begged for help, but Crowley
He slowly shook his head

"Young Charlie there is nothing
That I could do you see
'Cause money's more important
Than your life's worth for me"

Old Charlie died a sad man
So take this good advice
Be careful who you're dealing with
Or they may end your life

Walking Men Bamberg, Germany

A mild summer's night, the taste of whiskey and beer and some good tunes.
These are the evenings the two guys of Walking Men live for. They are playing their gritty music in bars clubs and festivals since 2010.
Rock and Blues to dance to, handmade guitars, crazy stories and the passion for music are a given.
So come join us, our porch is big enough, the beers are cold and the music's good.
