I know this great song is in an Album by the same name. Having trouble finding the lyrics. I don't see any reference to it here on pages I have scanned, or on any of the "lyric-sites."

Here's an excerpt I got by listening to several sound samples. I'm not sure I got the verses in the right order:

No one can see what goes down
If nobody else comes around
Nobody knows what you do

And for sure no one will ever know
You can come and you can go
Nobody knows what you do

Nobody knows what you see....

Here's what I came up with listening to "Nobody Knows What You Do" from John Hartford's album of the same name. Flying Fish Label 1976.

I have an mp3 put up on www.country tabs...it is pretty rough, but enough to give an idea of how it sounds...v.g.

NOBODY KNOWS WHAT YOU DO
John Hartford (Album same name)
Flying Fish Label 1976
Chords tabbed by Verne Garrison
Oct 7, 2008 Valley Park Mo


Nobody Knows What You Do

D          G       D
Nobody knows what you do
            G            D
Youre all alone, its just you
            G            D
Youre all alone, its just you
       G            D
Nobody knows what you do

             G       D
Nobody knows what you say
             G                G
Whether you work, or whether you play
             G       D          G       D
You have your way, Nobody knows what you do

Chorus:
    D                      G
For sure, no one would even know
         D                  G
You can come, and you can go
                      D
Nobody knows what you do

   D          G         D
Nobody can see what goes down
                   G
Nobody else comes around
                     D
Nobody knows what you do

Instrumental

Nobody knows what you see
When you go down on your knees
And roll your eyes?, nobody knows but you

Chorus:

Nobody comes to hang around
Nobody dares to put you down
Say its true, nobody knows but you

Chorus:

Nobody can see what goes down
Nobody else comes around
Nobody knows what you do

Chorus:

(Octave higher)
Nobody knows what you see
When you go down on your knees
Roll your eyes, nobody knows but you.

Chorus: Octave lower than started with.

The chord locations are not accurate, but if you play around with it, you can put them right. I used notepad, but when I pasted here they are off a bit...Verne
