Ain't Nobody Home - Howard Tate/Normie Rowe/B.B. King

  
  
Ain't Nobody Home
Once upon a time
A long, long time ago
Wherever you'd lead me
I would surely follow

Girl, you put me through
Some pain and misery
And now you are
Standing on my doorstep
Telling me how much you need me

Baby, ain't nobody home (nobody's home)
Ain't nobody home (nobody's home)

How many times I begged
For you to come home
But you laughed at me
And said let me alone

Through my burning tears
I saw you walk away
And now you're
Begging me to forgive you
But this time, baby
It's your turn to beg

Baby, ain't nobody home (nobody's home)
(Nobody's home) ain't nobody home

Girl, I used to love you
(Nobody knows)
In ways no one else would love you
(The trouble I've seen)

Gave you everything that I own
Girl, you can't come back here
Ain't nobody home
(Nobody's home)

Once upon a time
When you went on your way
Girl, I hoped and prayed
That you'd come back some day
