I Ain't Got No Money Now by Leroy Carr

I Ain't Got No Money Now - Leroy Carr,
Piano in D, Scrapper Blackwell, guitar in D position, standard tuning.

When I had plenty money I had friends for miles around
But now I ain't got money and all my friends turn me down
But what can I do?
I ain't got no money now

When I had plenty money then I had plenty friends
But now I'm down and out and all my friendship's at end
But what can I do?
I ain't got no money now

But the sun's gonna shine
In my back door someday
Then I won't have to be dogged around
Mistreated any old way

And it's mighty strange to me without a doubt
Why your friends don't want to know you when you're all down and out
But what can I do?
I ain't got no money now
Whoa babe, I ain't got no money now

Instrumental verse

Now I used to take my friends out for a great big time
Buyin' them booze Champagne liquor and wine
But what can I do?
I ain't got no money now

Sometimes I wonder why my friends want to pass me by
Because I'm down and out I guess that's the reason why
But what can I do?
I ain't got no money now

Some people don't like me
And others they just hear my name
But that's alright
I'll get by just the same

Someday I'll have money and be back on my feet again
Then I'll know just who to take baby for my friend
What can I do?
I ain't got no money now
Oh babe, I ain't got no money now
