 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

I don't accommodate nobody
I just take care of myself
Gotta house down on a dusty road
I don't need nobody else

I gotta wife and some kids
I don't know where they're at
I know many, many people
But I ain't got no friends

Well, I used to have some values
Now they just make me laugh
I used to think things would work out fine
But they never did do that

All these bosses and the rules
It's hard for me to fit in
Must be ten million people
But I ain't got no friends

Well, I'm a little isolated
I live most days in my head
And when I go to sleep at night
I got no sheets on my bed

I'm a little hard headed
I can't wait for this to end
I see people coming and going
But I ain't a got no friends

Well, I look out of my window
Into the darkness of night
My head gets to spinning
So I shut out the light

I don't care if I see tomorrow
If I had a reason I'd pretend
I know one thing for certain
I ain't a got no friends

Well, one of these days my anger
Get the best of my soul
In one desperate moment
I'm gonna dig me a hole

I'm gonna lie down in it
And let be what will be
When the morning sun rises
There'll be no one to mourn for me
When the morning sun rises
There'll be no one to mourn for me

I don't accommodate nobody
I just take care of myself
Gotta little house on a dusty road
I don't need nobody else

I gotta wife and some kids
I don't know where they're at
I know many, many people
But I ain't got no friends
