Songfacts®:

  • "The World Don't Owe Me Nothing" is the title of Edwards' 1997 live album, but this song doesn't appear on it, and we haven't been able to find it on any album for that matter. The song is a credo of sorts for Edwards, and is also the title of his autobiography. That phrase was a philosophy he lived by from 1929 when he hit the road aged only 14; he was still performing up until April 2011, four months before his death at the age of 96. >>
