Song title: I ain't got no home

(Woodie Guthrie) by Woodie Guthrie

I ain't got no home - Bruce version

I ain’t got no home, I’m just a ramblin’ around
A hard working ramblin’ man, I go from town to town
The police make it hard wherever I may go
And I ain’t got no home in this world anymore

I was farmin’ on the shares and always I was poor
My crops I laid into the banker’s door
And my wife took down and died upon the cabin floor
And I ain’t got no home in this world anymore

I ain’t got no home, I’m just a ramblin’ around
A hard working ramblin’ man, I go from town to town
The police make it hard wherever I may go
And I Ain’t Got No Home in this world anymore

Now as I look around it’s mighty plain to see
This wide wicked world is a funny place to be
The gamblin’ man is rich and the workin’ man is poor
And I ain’t got no home in this world anymore

Notes: Published on the Woodie Guthrie tribute LP.


I ain't got no home - Guthrie version

I ain't got no home, I'm just a ramblin' around
A hard working ramblin' man, I go from town to town
The police make it hard wherever I may go
And I ain't got no home in this world anymore

I was farmin' on the shares and always I was poor
My crops I laid into the banker's door
And my wife took down and died upon the cabin floor
And I ain't got no home in this world anymore

I ain't got no home, I'm just a ramblin' around
A hard working ramblin' man, I go from town to town
The police make it hard wherever I may go
And I Ain't Got No Home in this world anymore

Now as I look around it's mighty plain to see
This wide wicked world is a funny place to be
The gamblin' man is rich and the workin' man is poor
And I ain't got no home in this world anymore
