Ain't Nobody

from by Matthew Colin



All tracks written and recorded by Matthew Coin at 'home' in Mardi Bycroft's garage where he lived circa 2016-17. A space affectionately known as 'The Cabin"


Ain’t nobody gonna write my story down
When I’m gone when I’m buried in the ground
I’ll be a mystery on the wind
No-one will know who I truly is
No there ain’t nobody gonna write my story down

Already I’m a lone traveller on a filthy trail
Pretty soon everybody here will forget that I came
Probably half of them don’t even know my name
And the other half well they don’t look you in the face

When you only go one love in a selfish heart
Well the falling is too easy but the flying’s always hard
The song took my chances when my hands held this guitar
Now i’m in too deep, don’t want a way back to the start

I’ve been a cook, a cleaner, a carpenter, and a thief
You may never know the trouble I have seen
I’ve been a loner, a lover, a liar, and a friend
But only one thing is certain, when it all crumbles to an end

It'll only take listening to one or two lines and you will find a writer of considered craft, carrying values nested in a time of country folk music where all that mattered was the song itself. ... more
