Nobody From Nowhere
Written by: Tommy Womack, Will Kimbrough
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Buffet Hotel (2009)

Lyrics:
I’m nobody from nowhere
You’d have ever heard of anyway
Ain’t no city way down there
You could have heard a pin drop
Any time of day.

But I’m not sorry
I’m not sad
Tho it might take a whole day
Just to drive down there and visit
Not to worry
Not too bad
Nothin much to do
But that ain’t such a hardship really is it?
When you’re waiting for a car to drive by
Just so you can wave “Hello” “Hello” “Hello”
Staring at a starry night sky
Dreaming up some place to go, to go, to go

’til that day comes
I’ll be here
alone without a care
Nobody, nobody from nowhere.

I’m nobody from nowhere
You’d have ever heard of anyhow
Ain’t no reason
You should care
There’s a P. O. box and a 4-way stop
farms and fields and cows
We’re just waiting for a car to drive by
Just so you can wave hello hello hello hello
Staring at a starry night sky
Dreaming up some place to go, to go, to go, to go

’til that day comes
I’ll be there
alone without a care
Nobody, nobody from nowhere.

(musical bridge featuring electric guitar and organ)

Ahh, we’re Waiting for a car to drive by
Just so I can wave hello… hello… hello… hello.
Staring at a starry night sky
Dreaming of some place to go to go to go
’til that day comes
I’ll be there
alone without a care
Nobody, nobody from nowhere
Nobody, nobody from nowhere

(Guitar and organ featured at end also.)
