Lyrics
Once I lived the life of a millionaire,
Spent all my money, I just did not care.
Took all my friends out for a good time,
Bought bootleg whisky, champagne and wine.

Then I began to fall so low,
Lost all my good friends, I did not have nowhere to go.
I get my hands on a dollar again,
I'm gonna hang on to it till that eagle grins.

'Cause no, no, 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 finally get back up on your feet again,
Everybody wants to be your old long-lost friend.
Said it's mighty strange, without a doubt,
Nobody knows you when you're down and out.

When you finally get back upon your feet again,
Everybody wants to be your good old long-lost friend.
Said it's mighty strange,
Nobody knows you,
Nobody knows you,
Nobody knows you when you're down and out.

Nobody Knows You
This song has a fantastic chord progression and it is one I love to play solo acoustic but it is also great to hear it in this barroom blues format, too. Sylvia keys have just the right vamp and it is really good to hear your vocal work, Andy. I really enjoyed this rendition. Thanks for bringing it back to life. Kind regards, Peter.

Smooth playing and work-weary vocal with a touch of attitude make a good package. Much enjoyed!
