John Lee Hooker – Nobody Knows lyrics
Nobody know, nobody know what I've been through
Nobody know, know what I've been through
Sometime, sometime I didn't have food to go on my table
That's why I sang the blues

You got to feel it, you got to know it
You got to be and been through this thing to sing the blues
And that's why nobody know what I've been through

I was born on a little cotton farm
My mother and my father were very poor
I was unprivileged, I didn't have a chance
And that's why I just sang the blue

People, you don't know I've been through
I wonder why everything I do
I just can't get lucky, save my life

My mother and my father both are dead and gone
They loved me in the world alone
I ain't got nobody to tell my trouble to
Well, I'm drifting, I'm drifting
I'm drifting from town to town

But nobody know I've been through
