Nobody Knows You When You're Down & Out Songtext
von Eric Clapton

Nobody Knows You When You're Down & Out Songtext

Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spent all my money, didn't have any care
Took all my friends out for a mighty good time
Bought bootleg liquor, champagne and wine

Then I began to fall so low
Lost all my good friends, had nowhere to go
I get my hands on a dollar again
I'll hang on to it till that old eagle grins

'Cause nobody knows you
When you're down and out
In your pocket, not one penny
And as for friends, you don't have many


When you get back on your feet again
Everybody wants to be your long-lost friend
I said it's strange, without any doubt
Nobody knows you when you're down and out

Oh Nobody knows you
When you're down and out
In your pocket, not one penny
And as for friends, you don't have any
When you get back on your feet again
Everybody wants to be your long-lost friend
I said it's strange, without any doubt
Nobody knows you (nobody knows you)
Nobody knows you (nobody knows you)
Nobody knows you
When you're down and out

Weder die Musik noch der Text sind von Eric Clapton, sondern von Jimmy Cox- den Song hat Bessie Smith schon gesungen, als Eric noch nicht mal ein feuchter Gedanke seiner Eltern war.
