Hey Dear Members.

Here is a track I made just now. It is a track I have co written with Woody Guthrie. He wrote the first two verses, but never finished it. I wrote a third verse for it. It is all acoustic, a natural sound with no gimmicks. I play the guitar, mandolin, harmonica and sing it on my lonesome. It is dedicated to all the lonely people here, the beautiful misfits of the world, who are my favourite kind of people.

The lyrics are:

I ain't got nobody, ain't nobody got me,
I'm just like a little apple hangin' on a tree.
Don't nobody want me I can plainly see,
I ain't got nobody and ain't nobody got me.

I ain't got nobody, ain't nobody got me,
I'm just like a chunk of wood floatin' on the sea.
Don't nobody want me I can plainly see,
I ain't got nobody and ain't nobody got me. (by Woody)

I ain't got nobody, I'm all by myself
Blowin' where the wind blows there ain't no-one else
Don't somebody need me I can plainly see
I ain't got nobody, ain't nobody got me (by me)

I Ain't Got Nobody

The link takes you to the track on bandcamp. The track is free to stream or download, not for commercial gain

lots of love to y'all. In loving memory of the legend folk hero Woody Guthrie.

You exhibit the kind of sound that makes my heart dance. I know that might sound corny, but that's the truth of it. I particularly like the harmonica break and subsequent fade. I think this song should just end and not fade, but I really truly loved it. Grassroots stuff. Salt of the Earth. Peace.
