“nobody knows you when you’re down and out”

(playing blues)
once i lived the life of a millionaire
spent all my money
didn’t have any care
took all my friends out for a mighty good time
we bought bootleg liquor,champagne and wine
then began to fall so low
lost all my good friends
hand nowhere to go
if i get my hands on a dollar again
i’ll hang on to it
till that old eagle grins
because
nobody loves you
when you’re down and out
in your pocket,not one penny
and as for friends,you don’t have any
when you get back on your feet again
everybody wants to be your long-lost friend
i’ll set it straight without any doubt
nobody knows you when you’re down and out
(guitar solo)
(piano solo)
whoa
nobody knows you
when you’re down and out
in your pocket,not one penny
and as for friends,you don’t have any
when you get back on your feet again
everybody wants to be your long-lost friend
i’ll set it straight without any doubt
nobody knows you
nobody knows you
nobody knows you
when you’re down and out

久しぶりにDVDで芸術の秋を満喫してしまいました。
’92のMTVでのeric claptonを見つけて大感激!!
’30にベッシースミスが歌っていたオリジナルの雰囲気をまんま再現したそうで

そっか〜憂歌団の「どつぼ節」もこれだったんだ、知らなかったなぁ
セッションに混ざろうと何十年か振りでギターケースを開けたら、弦が
錆付いていたのでした(大泣)
