[Verse] Both Guitars

C                E7           A/G
 I once lived the life of a millionaire
Dm             A7           Dm           Fig. I
 Spent all my money, didn't have any care
F             F#          C     Fig. II    A/G
 Took all my friends out for a mighty good time
D7           D7/F#       G7
 We bought bootleg liquor, champagne, and wine


C         E7         A/G
 Then I began to fall so low
Dm            A7              Dm           Fig. I   
 Lost all my good friends, had nowhere to go
F           F#     C  Fig. II  A/G
 I get my hands on a dollar again
D7         D7/F#       G7
 I'm gonna hang on to it till that eagle grins


[Chorus] Both Guitars

C     E7       A/G
 Cause nobody knows you
Dm           A7       Dm   Fig. I  
 When you're down and out
F        F#    C Fig. II  A/G
 In your pocket, not one penny
D7        D7/F#    G7
 And as for friends, you don't have any


[Verse] Both Guitars

C             E7          A/G
 When you get back up on your feet again
Dm         A7               Dm            Fig. I
 Everybody wants to be your long lost friend 
F      F#         C  Fig. II   A/G
 Said its strange without any doubt 
D7      D7/F#           G7
 Nobody knows you when you're down and out

About the artist behind Nobody Knows You When Youre Down And Out:

Eric Patrick Clapton, CBE (born 30 March 1945), is a English blues-rock guitarist, singer, songwriter and composer. He is one of the most successful musicians of the 20th and 21st centuries,[1] garnering an unprecedented three inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (The Yardbirds, Cream, and solo). Often viewed by critics and fans alike as one of the greatest guitarists of all time[2], Clapton was ranked fourth in Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"[3] and #53 on their list of the Immortals: 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[4]

Although Clapton's musical style has varied throughout his career, it has always remained rooted in the blues. Clapton is credited as an innovator in several phases of his career, which have included blues-rock (with John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Yardbirds) and psychedelic rock (with Cream). Clapton has also achieved great chart success in genres ranging from Delta blues (Me and Mr. Johnson) to pop ("Change the World") and reggae (Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff"). Clapton also achieved fame with Derek and the Dominos through the hit song "Layla".
