Alberta Hunter – Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out lyrics
Once I lived the life
Of a millionaire
Spending my money
And I didn't care
Taking my friends out
Having a good time
Buying bootleg liquor
Champagne and wine

Ah but when my money
Began to fall so low
I didn't have a friend
And I couldn't go
If I ever get my hands
On a dollar again
I'm gonna squeeze it
And squeeze it
Until that eagle grins

'Cause nobody knows you
When you are down and out
In your pocket not one penny
And friends you haven't any

But as soon as you get on your feet
Many friends you chance to met
It's strange to say, without a doubt
Nobody knows you when your down and out
They don't know you when you're down and out, no

Nobody knows you
When you are down and out
In your pocket not one penny
And friends you haven't any

If I ever get my hands
On a dollar again
And I happen to run across
A few of my fair weather friends

I've learned my lesson
Yes I've found out
That nobody knows you
No, no no nobody need you
Lord, lord, no nobody knows you
When you're down, down and out
