Charles Wesley Godwin Shares Unreleased “West Of Lonesome,” And How Did This Not Make The Album?

Charles Wesley Godwin’s latest album How The Mighty Fall is clearly one of the top albums of the year, and while we never thought he’d have any trouble cranking out new tunes, we now have the proof that he’s got plenty in the tank.

The West Virginia native posted an acoustic version of a new song called “West Of Lonesome,” a heart-breaking ballad of love lost and trying to pick up and find yourself in the wilderness of lonely.

“There’s a fire up on my mountain
Blood is on the floor
Water over my levee
Need I say anymore?
About the path that you tore
All the holes that your wore
Right through me.”

Once again, Charles proves he’s as legit as they get.

Even though he just released a record a month ago, you got to love seeing him still honing his craft, putting pen to paper and fingers to strings.

I’ll end with the obvious question from myself and many others… how did this one not make the record?

He recently joined the Whiskey Riff Raff Podcast, where he discussed his new album, the rise of Zach Bryan, college football and much more.
