  • [Chorus]
    I don't accommodate nobody
    I just take care of myself
    Gotta house down on a dusty road
    I don't need nobody else
    I gotta wife and some kids
    I don't know where they're at
    I know many many people
    But I ain't got no friends

    Well I used to have some values
    Now they just make me laugh
    I used to think things would work out fine
    But they never did do that
    All these bosses and the rules
    It's hard for me to fit in
    Must be ten million people
    But I ain't got no friends

    Well I'm a little isolated
    I live most days in my head
    And when I go to sleep at night
    I got no sheets on my bed
    I'm a little hard headed
    I can't wait for this to end
    I see people coming and going
    But I ain't a got no friends

    Well I look out of my window
    Into the darkness of night
    My head gets to spinning
    So I shut out the light
    I don't care if I see tomorrow
    If I had a reason I'd pretend
    I know one thing for certain
    I ain't a got no friends

    Well one of these days my anger
    Get the best of my soul
    In one desperate moment
    I'm gonna dig me a hole
    I'm gonna lie down in it
    And let be what will be
    When the morning sun rises
    There'll be no one to mourn for me

    When the morning sun rises
    There'll be no one to mourn for me

    [Chorus] Writer/s: JOHN MELLENCAMP
