If You Ain't Got Nothing
recorded by Bobby Bare
written by
Red Lane and Dan Wilson
Well if you ain’t got nothing you ain’t got nothing to lose
There ain’t no pleasure in singing these low down blues
Smoking that get down and bumming them Red Man chews
C G7 C
If you ain’t got nothing you ain’t got nothing to lose

Daddy was a freeloader working for the railroad line
D7 G7
I grew up listening to brother can you spare me a dime
The oil situation and the world’s inflation and the bomb would be bad news
C G7 C
But when you ain’t got nothing you ain’t got nothing to lose

Repeat #1
I used to work my fingers to the bone
D7 G7
I had everything that me and the bank could own
But a sweaty blue collar and a deflated dollar ain’t no way to pay your dues
C G7 C
But if you ain’t got nothing you ain’t got nothing to lose

Repeat #1
