This song is a lot of fun from Unplugged.  The basic tab
is easy, so I decided to put it up.  Hope you enjoy it!

LYRICS:
play intro for verses, play intro tab ad-lib Once I lived the life of a millionaire Spent all my money didn't have any cares Took all my friends out for mighty good time We bought bootleg liquor champagne and wine Then I began to fall so low Lost all my good friends had nowhere to go If I get my hands on a dollar again I'll hang on to it till that old Eagle grins Because nobody knows you when you're down and out In your pocket not one penny and as for friends you don't have many When you get back on your feet again everybody wants to be your long-lost friend I said it straight without any doubt nobody knows you when you're down and out
Guitar Solo Piano Solo
Oh nobody knows you when you're down and out In your pocket not one penny and as for friends you don't have any When you get back on your feet again everybody wants to be your long-lost friend I said it straight without any doubt nobody knows you play ending Nobody knows you Nobody knows you when you're down and out
