“Nobody” — lyrics & chords

Words and music by Andru Bemis

 E I know there will come a day                A When I will throw these shoes away  E No more thumbing down the old highway            B Just trying to find a ride        E To heaven knows where I’ve been          A But I am bound for home again          E                                              B                                C#m I’m waiting on the day no body to tie me down          E                                            B                                               E I’m waiting on the day nobody gonna keep me down I went to church, the preacher spoke Of father, son and holy ghost And how they hated gays the most I got the hell out running Heaven knows how hard I’ve tried To keep my savior satisfied I’m waiting on the day no body to tie me down I’m waiting on the day nobody gonna keep me down Money is like the dust, they say It comes and goes in its own way Everything I’ve tried to save Just rusts and rots and fades But heaven holds the broke and lonely Heaven knows that I am only Waiting on the day no body to tie me down I’m waiting on the day nobody gonna keep me down If I should die before I wake I give the world my flesh to take It tried so hard my soul to break I’m bruised but I will fly To heaven knows I’ve done my best And I know heaven will do the rest I’m waiting on the day no body to tie me down I’m waiting on the day nobody gonna keep me down When autumn turns the leaves to gold And time has turned me grey and old I’ll turn my collar to the cold And set out on that road To heaven knows where I’ve been But soon I will be home again I’m waiting on the day no body to tie me down I’m waiting on the day nobody gonna keep me down
