"Nothin'" as written by and Townes Van Zandt....
Hey, Mama, when you leave
Don't leave a thing behind
I don't want nothing
I can't use nothing

Take care into the hall
And if you see my friends
Tell 'em I'm fine
Not using nothing

Almost burned out my eyes
Threw my ears down to the floor
I didn't see nothing
I didn't hear nothing

Stood there like a block of stone
Knowing all I had to know
And nothing more
But, man, that's nothing

As brothers our troubles are
Locked in each others arms
And you better pray
That they never find you

Cause your back ain't strong enough
For burdens double fold
They'd crush you down
Down into nothing

Being born is going blind
And bowing down a thousand times
To echoes strung
On pure temptation

Sorrow and solitude
These are the precious things
And the only words
That are worth remembering
