Nobody's Baby Now Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I've searched the holy books
I tried to unravel the mystery of Jesus Christ, the Savior
I've read the poets and the analysts
Searched through the books on human behavior

I traveled this world around
For an answer that refused to be found
I don't know why and I don't know how
But she's nobody's baby now

I loved her then and I guess I love her still
Hers is the face I see when a certain mood moves in
She lives in my blood and skin
Her wild feral stare, her dark hair
Her winter lips as cold as stone, I was her man

But there are some things love won't allow
I held her hand but I don't hold it now
I don't know why and I don't know how
But she's nobody's baby now

This is her dress that I loved best
With the blue quilted violets across the breast
And these are my many letters
Torn to pieces by her long-fingered hand
I was her cruel-hearted man

And though I've tried to lay her ghost down
Well, she's moving through me, even now
I don't know why, I don't know how
But she's nobody's baby now

She's nobody's baby now
Nobody's baby now
She's nobody's baby now
