Steve Winwood – Nobody Loves You When You're Down And Out lyrics

Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spent all my money, didn't have a care
Taking all my friends out for a mighty good ride
Bootleg liquors, champagne and wine
Then I began to fall so low
Didn't have a penny and no place to go
If i ever lay my hand on a dollar again
I'm gonna hold on to it till the eagle grins
Nobody loves you when you are down and out
In your pocket you ain't got one penny
And your friends, you don't have any
Well just as soon as you've get back on your feet again
Here they all come the same old year long lost friends
I thought that it's mighty strange but without a doubt
For nobody wants you, I got to tell ya
Nobody needs you
Nobody loves you when you're down and out.
(I got to tell you one more time)
