I saw the Jim Jarmusch movie Dead Man, then I went home and wrote this. The song, like the movie, examines a world where everthing has been taken or lost. Plus, there’s this guy named Nobody.
Winfield cred: This song was an alternate showcase selection for Walnut Valley Festival’s NewSong Showcase, 2010.
© 2006 Bryan Masters (cut capo) E D Drove all night to nowhere E D Which is where I began E D Kept driving in a straight line E D 'Til I got there again A And I'm still there B E D E D Nowhere D A And the phone didn't ring E Again and again D A There’s no one at the door E And I didn't let 'em in D A I'm home when I'm nowhere E D E D And my name is nobody At first nothing happened Then it happened again It happened for the third time And every day since then That's what happened Nothing A B E There’s only two things I can count on A B That's nothing and nobody There’s no time like the present Except it's already gone They say my time is comin' But never always takes too long I could wait forever For never Bryan Masters Music/ASCAP
