Jackie Lomax — Nothin' Ever Seems To Go My Way lyrics

I do the best I can with no monogram
I say, who I am ain't a happy man - today
'Cause nothin' ever seems (nothin' ever seems) to go my way
It's gettin' much harder to play - today

I used to waste my time thinkin' she was mine
I only read her face and not the mind behind - too late
Nothin' ever seems (nothin' ever seems) to go my way
Well, I never stashed nothin' away
And this is my rainy day
Nothin' ever seems to go my way

He gets a few spare bills, some headache pills
Tanked to the gills and the tension builds - too high
Nothin' ever seems (nothin' ever seems) to go my way
It's got to get brighter some day
I wish it would be right away
'Cause nothin' ever seems to go my way
