Without a doubt

Chanson : Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out, Bessie Smith



Paroles


Once I lived a life of a millionaire

Spendin' my money, I didn't care

I carried my friends out for a good time

Buy bootleg liquor, champagne, and wine


When I begin to fall so low

I didn't have a friend and no place to go

But if I ever get my hands on a dollar again

I'm gonna hold on to it 'til them eagles grin


Nobody knows you

When you down and out

In my pocket not one penny

And my friends, I haven't any


But if I ever get on my feet again

And I'll meet my long-lost friend

It's mighty strange without a doubt

Nobody knows you when you down and out

I mean, when you down and out


Mmm

When you down and out

Mmm, not one penny

And my friends, I haven't any


Mmm, and I fell so low

Nobody wants me 'round their door

Mmm, without a doubt

No man can use you when you down and out

I mean when you down and out
