Well, once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spending my money, I didn't care
Takin' my friends out for a mighty good time
Buyin' bootleg liquor, champagne and wine

Then I began to fall so low
Couldn't find me no friends, had no place to go
If I ever get my hands on a dollar again
I'm gonna hold on to it, till the eagle grins

I said, nobody knows you when you're down and out
In your pockets, you ain't got one penny
And your friends, you didn't have any

Just as soon as you get upon your feet again
Here they all come, they say
That they're your long-lost friend
Oh Lord, without a doubt

Nobody wants you, nobody needs you
Nobody wants you when you're down and out
I say nobody wants you, nobody needs you
Nobody wants you when you're down and out

Songwriters
COX, JIMMIE
