Eric Clapton Lyrics "Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out" Once I lived the life of a millionaire Spent all my money, I just did not care Took all my friends out for a good time Bought bootleg whiskey, champagne and wine Then I began to fall so low Lost all my good friends, I did not have nowhere to go I get my hands on a dollar again
