You Can’t Lose What You Ain’t Never Had — Muddy Waters

You Can’t Lose What You Ain’t Never Had — Muddy Waters

Once I had a pretty little girl
I lose my baby, ain’t that sad
Oh, you know, once I had a pretty little girl
I lose my baby, ain’t that sad
Well, you know, you can’t spend what you ain’t got
You can’t lose what you ain’t never had

I had money in the bank
I got busted, boys, ain’t that sad
Oh, you know, I had some money in the bank
I got busted, baby, ain’t that bad
Well, you know, you can’t spend what you ain’t got
You can’t lose what you ain’t never had

I had a sweet little home
It got burned down, boys, ain’t that bad
Oh, you know, was my own fault
People, they just said
Well, you know, you can’t spend what you ain’t got
You can’t lose what you ain’t never had
