Wanderin' / Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out - Lyrics

My daddy is an engineer, my brother drives a hack
My sister pulls in washing, the baby balls the jack
And it looks like I'm never gonna cease my wanderin'

I been wanderin' early and late
New York City to the Golden Gate
And it looks like I'm never gonna cease my wanderin'

Snakes in the ocean, eels in the sea
A red headed woman made a wreck'a me
And it looks like I'm never gonna cease my wanderin'

Nobody knows you when you're down and out
In your pocket, not one penny
And your friends you know you haven't any

If I ever get my hands on a dollar again
I'm gonna hold onto it 'til George Washington grins
It's mighty strange without a doubt
Nobody wants you when you're down and out

Nobody wants you when you're down and out
Nobody wants you when you're down and out
It's mighty strange without a doubt
Nobody wants you, nobody needs you
I know what I'm talkin' about
Nobody wants you when you're down and out
