Nobody

This song is by Ry Cooder and appears on the album Jazz (1978).

Nobody knows the trouble I see Nobody knows but me
When life seems full of clouds and rain
I am filled with naught but pain
Who soothes my thumpin' bumpin brain?
Nobody

And When winter comes with snow and sleet
And me with hunger and cold feet
Who says, "Here's a quarter,
Boy now you go and eat"?
Nobody

I ain't never done nothin' to nobody
And I ain't never got nothin' from a nobody no time
And until I get somethin' from somebody sometime,
Well, I don't intend to do nothin' for nobody no time

Then summer comes all cool and clear
And my good friends they see me drawin' near
Who says, "Come on in here, man, have a beer"?
No-body

Last christmas eve it was about daybreak
I was in that railroad wreck
And who was it hauled the engine off my neck
Not a livin' soul

I ain't ever done nothin' to no-body
And I ain't never got nothin' from no-body no time
Until I get me somethin' from somebody sometime
Well I been thinkin' it out
And beyond a doubt I ain't gonna do nothin' for nobody no time
I don't intend to do nothin' for nobody
Nobody no time, no time
Nobody no time
Well I don't intend To do nothin' for nobody no time
