Nobody's Girl
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics

She don't need anybody to tell her she's pretty
She's heard it every single day of her life
He's got to wonder what she sees in him
When there's so many others standing in line
She gives herself to him, but he's still on the outside
She's alone in this world
She's nobody's girl
She's nobody's girl

She shows up at this doorstep in the middle of the night
Then she disappears for weeks at a time
It's just enough to keep him wanting more
But never is he satisfied

And he's left to pick up the pieces
Wondering what does he do this for
She's off in her own little world
She's nobody's girl
She's nobody's girl

He said before I met her, I didn't love nothin'
I could take it or leave it, that was okay
She brings out a want in me
For things I didn't even know that I need
She does anything she wants, anytime she wants to
With anyone, you know, she wants it all

Still she gets all upset over the least little thing
When you hurt her, it makes you feel so small
And she's a walking contradiction
But I ache for her inside
She's fragile like a string of pearls
She's nobody's girl
She's fragile like a string of pearls
She's nobody's girl
She's nobody's girl
She's nobody's girl

Bonnie Rhett music is beautiful she can really sing the blues.


“She didn’t care if the world thought she was pretty. All she wanted was that special someone to reach beyond the surface and discover her heart.”

Oct 2020 still open spot in his heart ❤


I love Bonnie Raitt 😢💕 I’m a singer too - she’s one of my biggest inspos along with Eva Cassidy & Etta .... Tracy Chapman... Norah Jones.... Sheryl Crow..... I love it all :P couldn’t really pick a favorite but Bonnie is definitely one of the best


Check out the song "Sand and Water" by Beth Nielson-Carpenter & mary chapin-carpenter- no idea if she's related to the late Harry Chapin or the Carpenters though, since you like Bonnie Raitt. I'm a huge fan myself

This song has the coolest arrangement. The interplay of the melody and the guitar is so simple yet intricate and really well done.


This song is so important to me.
