Townes Van Zandt Lyrics


            NOTHIN’
TOWNES VAN ZANDT

CAPO 3

Am
HEY MAMA, WHEN YOU LEAVE, 
Am
DON’T LEAVE A THING BEHIND
F            Am        E            Am             
I DON’T WANT NOTHIN’…… I DON’T NEED NOTHIN’

TAKE CARE INTO THE HALL, 
AND IF YOU SEE MY FRIENDS
TELL THEM I’M FINE……… NOT USING NOTHIN’

ALMOST BURNED OUT MY EYES, 
THREW MY EARS DOWN TO THE FLOOR
I DIDN’T SEE NOTHIN’…… I DIDN’T HEAR NOTHIN’

I STOOD THERE LIKE A BLOCK OF STONE
KNOWIN’ ALL I HAD TO KNOW
AND NOTHIN’ MORE……MAN, THAT’S NOTHIN’

AS BROTHERS OUR TROUBLES ARE
LOCKED IN EACH OTHERS ARMS AND YOU BETTER PRAY…… THEY NEVER FIND YOU YOUR BACK AIN’T STRONG ENOUGH FOR BURDENS DOUBLEFOLD. THEY’D CRUSH YOU DOWN……. DOWN INTO NOTHIN’ BEING BORN IS GOING BLIND AND BUYING DOWN A THOUSAND TIMES TO ECHOES STRUNG…… ON PURE TEMPTATION SORROW AND SOLITUDE THESE ARE PRECIOUS THINGS AND THE WORDS……..THAT ARE WORTH REMEMBERIN’ HEY MAMA, WHEN YOU LEAVE, DON’T LEAVE A THING BEHIND I DON’T WANT NOTHIN’…… I DON’T NEED NOTHIN’
