No Pity On Me

Story Behind The Song

I came up with the guitar part first. It's a DADGAD tuning. I had been playing Steve Stills' "Tree-top Flyer" and I sort of went into this. The guitar part required a lyric like this and it eventually came. I always envisioned a couple of old blues guys sittin' on the back porch of some old deep south, country house just pickin' some lazy guitar and coming up with this. It's sort of down-home, back-country, Ry Cooder to me but that's not a choice in your "Similar Artists" selection.

Song Description

What's more to say? Have you ever gotten that phone call a couple weeks or so after someone has broken it off? You know, the one where they say in a sympathetic voice, "I just want to make sure you're doing okay." Like they think your sittin' home alone with gun in your mouth. Anyway, sympathy, pity and such have no place in a relationship. That's what this song is about.

Lyric Sheet

I just need your lovin? Babe I don?t need your sympathy.
If this is just a mercy f**k then, stay away from me.
I just need your lovin?. I don?t need your sympathy.

If you?re holdin? back on me making love won?t feel right.
I?ll just bags and be outta here tonight.
I just need your lovin?. Don?t you have No Pity On Me.

All the trouble that I?ve seen you know I brought it on myself.
I just need your lovin? Babe. I don?t your nothin? else.
I just need your lovin?. I don?t need your sympathy.

I just need your lovin?. Don?t you have No Pity On Me.

SOLO

I just need your lovin? Babe. I don?t need your sympathy
If this is just a mercy f**k then, stay away from me.
I just need your lovin?. I don?t need your sympathy.

You try to get me in the sack. You wanna to play me for a fool.
But you?re the one that?s holdin? back while breaking every rule.
Tell me now, is it him or is it me?

Yeah, I see him hangin? around your door like a dog waitin? to be fed.
I see come around once more I?m a bull seein? red. .
I just need your lovin?. I don?t need your sympathy.

I just need your lovin?. Don?t you have No Pity On Me.
.
I just need your lovin? Babe. Don?t you have No Pity On Me.
