Song Author Jimmie Cox Lyrics by: Jimmie Cox Performer: Eric Clapton Submitted by: Anonymous
[D]Once I lived the life [F#7]of a mil[B7]lionaire
[G]Spending my [B7]money and I [Em]didn't care
[G]Taking my friends [C#7]out for a [D]mighty fine [B7]time   
Drinking [E7]high priced liquor cham[A7]pagne and wine
[D]When I began [F#7]to fall [B7]so low
I [G]didn't hava a [B7]friend and [Em]no place to go
If I [G]ever get my [C#7]hands on a [D]dollar ag[B7]ain   
I'm gonna [E7]hold on to it till that [A7]eagle grins

[D]No  [F#7]body     [B7]knows you [G]when [B7]your down [Em]and out
[G]In your [C#7]pocket [D]not one [B7]penny
[E7]and as for friends, you [A7]haven't any
But as [D]soon as you get [F#7]on your [B7]feet again
[G]Everybody [B7]wants to be your [Em]long lost friend
It's [G]mighty strange [C#7] with    [D]out a [B7]doubt
[E7]Nobody knows you when your [A7]down and out [D]    

[D]No  [F#7]body     [B7]knows you [G]when [B7]your down [Em]and out
[G]In your [C#7]pocket [D]not one [B7]penny
[E7]and as for friends, you [A7]haven't any
But as [D]soon as you get [F#7]on your [B7]feet again
[G]Everybody [B7]wants to be your [Em]long lost friend
It's [G]mighty strange [C#7] with    [D]out a [B7]doubt
[E7]Nobody knows you when your [A7]down and [D]out  
[D7]I mea[B7]n wh[E7]en your [A7]down and out [D]    

Once I lived the life of a millionaire
Spending my money and I didn't care
Taking my friends out for a mighty fine time
Drinking high priced liquor champagne and wine
When I began to fall so low
I didn't hava a friend and no place to go
If I ever get my hands on a dollar again
I'm gonna hold on to it till that eagle grins

Nobody knows you when your down and out
In your pocket not one penny
and as for friends, you haven't any
But as soon as you get on your feet again
Everybody wants to be your long lost friend
It's mighty strange without a doubt
Nobody knows you when your down and out

Nobody knows you when your down and out
In your pocket not one penny
and as for friends, you haven't any
But as soon as you get on your feet again
Everybody wants to be your long lost friend
It's mighty strange without a doubt
Nobody knows you when your down and out
I mean when your down and out
