Song Author Nina Simone Submitted by: Anonymous
O[C]nce I lived the [E]life of a m[A]illi[A7]onai   [A]re,  
[Dm]Spent all my [A]money, [Dm]just did [A7]not    [Dm]care,
[F]Took all my f[F7]riends out for a [C]mighty [C/B]good t[A]ime,
B[D7]ought bootleg whisky, [G7]champagne and wine.
T[C]hen I be[E]gan to [A]fall[A7] so    [A]low;
[Dm]Lost all my [A]good friends, had n[Dm]owhere t[A]o g  [Dm]o.   
[F]If I get my [F7]hands on a d[C]ollar [C/B]again,[A]    
I'm gonna hang on to[D7] it till that [G7]eagle grins, 'cause

[C]Nobody[E] know[A7]s you when[Dm] you're down[A7] and ou[Dm]t;   
In[F] your p[D7]ocket, n[C]ot o[C/B]ne pe    [A7]nny;   
And [D]as for friends,[G] you don't have any.
[C]Then when you get [E]back on your f[A]eet [A7]again[A]    
[Dm]Everybody w[A]ants to be your l[Dm]ong-l[A7]ost f[Dm]riend
I[F]t's mighty st[F7]range, wit[C]hout[C/B] any d[A]oubt
[D7]Nobody knows you when you're [G7]down and [C]out.
W[G7]hen you [C]finally get [E]back upon your f[A]eet [A7]agai   [A]n,  
[Dm]Everybody [A]wants to be your [Dm]long-lo[A7]st fr[Dm]iend   
Said i[F]t's mighty [D7]strange,[C] withou[C/B]t any [A]doubt
Nob[F]ody k[Dm7]nows you w[G]hen you're [C]down and o[E7]ut.   
[F]It's mighty [D7]strange, wit[C]hout any [A7]doubt,
No[F]body [Fdim]knows you when you're[G] down[Fdim], you're d[G]own and [C]out.

Once I lived the life of a millionaire,
Spent all my money, just did not care,
Took all my friends out for a mighty good time,
Bought bootleg whisky, champagne and wine.
Then I began to fall so low;
Lost all my good friends, had nowhere to go.
If I get my hands on a dollar again,
I'm gonna hang on to it till that eagle grins, 'cause

Nobody knows you when you're down and out;
In your pocket, not one penny;
And as for friends, you don't have any.
Then when you get back on your feet again
Everybody wants to be your long-lost friend
It's mighty strange, without any doubt
Nobody knows you when you're down and out.
When you finally get back upon your feet again,
Everybody wants to be your long-lost friend
Said it's mighty strange, without any doubt
Nobody knows you when you're down and out.
It's mighty strange, without any doubt,
Nobody knows you when you're down, you're down and out.
