    Lyrics

    Once I lived the life of a millionaire
    Spending my money, I didn't care
    I carried my friends out for a good time
    Buying bootleg liquor, champagne and wine

    Then I began to fall so low
    I didn't have a friend, and no place to go
    So if I ever get my hand on a dollar again
    I'm gonna hold on to it till them eagle's green

    Nobody knows you when you down and out
    In my pocket not one penny
    And my friends I haven't any
    But If I ever get on my feet again
    Then I'll meet my long lost friend
    It's mighty strange, without a doubt
    Nobody knows you when you down and out
    I mean when you down and out

    Mmmmmmmm, when you're down and out
    Mmmmmmmm, not one penny
    And my friends I haven't any
    Mmmmmmmm, well I felt so low
    Nobody wants me round their door
    Mmmmmmmm, without a doubt,
    No man can use you wen you down and out
    I mean when you down and out
