             NOBODY CARES FOR ME   by  Mississippi John Hurt

                     tablature by Mark T. Verhaar


Here's a transcription of Mississippi John Hurts 'Nobody cares for me'
as can be heard on the CD Rounder 1082, recorded in Annapoli, Maryland,
April 2-4, 1963.
It is a simple 16 measure Waltz in D played. (In a tempo of 150 b.p.m. it
sounds quit oke)
I've used pretty standard notation, so I quess it doesn't require much
explanation. ( the '/' stands for slide).
Two quitar sections are described: one which is used behind the verses and
a variation of it used as an instrumental break.

Happy picking,

    D                             G7             D

                    Lonesome is I, Wished I could die
                                               Nobody cares for me
                    Lonesome is I, Wished I could die
                                               Nobody cares for me

                    It was a bright moon lighted night, the moon shining
bright
                                               When you and I made love
                    Your love wasn't true, I'll say onto you
                                               I moaned like a turtledove

                    Lonesome is I, Wished I could die
                                               Nobody cares for me
                    Lonesome is I, Wished I could die
                                               Nobody cares for me

                    I'm coming home, no more to roam
                                     darling I'm coming home
                    I'm coming home, no more to roam
                                     darling I'm coming home

                    Lonesome is I, Wished I could die
                                               Nobody cares for me
                    Lonesome is I, Wished I could die
                                               Nobody cares for me

                    It was a bright moon lighted night, the moon shining
bright
                                               When you and I made love
                    Your love wasn't true, I'll say onto you
                                               I moaned like a turtledove
