Well my wife she took off to Memphis
With some fella from our little town
My mother’s at home up in Baltimore
And my daddy is down in the ground
It gets awfully cold here in the winter
Hot and humid in the summer time
I got laid off on account there’s no work for me
Now I’m in the unemployment line

No one cares about me
No one cares about me
No one cares about me at all
If I had to guess
It’s because I’m spotty at best
No one cares about me at all

Well my kids they’ve all scattered
Went lookin’ for a better life
Lost one of my boys to the drug man
It’s the only time I’ve cried in my life
And I knew an old guy once
He was kind of my friend
But he smoked himself to death
And they buried him out at Riverview
Now I’m all that I’ve got left

No one cares about me
No one cares about me
No one cares about me at all
If I had to guess
It’s because I’m spotty at best
No one cares about me at all

Some day I’ll go look up my brother
He lives a few miles from here
Haven’t talked to him in quite some time
I guess it’s been six or seven years
Well he works out there at the cannery
And I think he makes a pretty good pay
His wife she never thought too much of me
So I just stayed away

No one cares about me
No one cares about me
No one cares about me at all
If I had to guess
It’s because I’m spotty at best
No one cares about me at all

Well it’s hard to say what kind of fella I am
But most the time nothing goes my way
I must have done something pretty wrong
But I still think it will work out okay
There surely must be some angels around the bend
And they’re trying to get to me
I’ll catch up with them pretty soon
But for now no one cares about me

No one cares about me
No one cares about me
No one cares about me at all
If I had to guess
It’s because I’m spotty at best
No one cares about me at all
