That girl I goodbyed long ago

Such plans they have, such God's they have

I might move to Las Vegas, live there for a while
           Em                  G
'Cause I'd rather be nobody's, nobody's, nobody's
Em                         G                   D
Yes I'd rather be nobody's man than somebody's child
