about

Nobody's Fault But Mine" is a traditional song first recorded by gospel blues artist Blind Willie Johnson in 1927. The song is originally a solo performance with Johnson singing and playing slide guitar. It tells of a spiritual struggle, with reading the Bible as the path to salvation, or, rather, the failure to read it leading to damnation. This Version by Nina Simone is from the 1969 album Nina Simone and Piano.

lyrics

Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
If I die and my soul be lost
Nobody's fault but mine

I said, "I had mother who could pray
I had mother who could pray"

If I die and my soul be lost
Nobody's fault but mine, yeah
Oh mine, yeah now

I had mother who could sing
I had mother who could sing

If I die and my soul be lost
It's nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine
Nobody's fault but mine

If I die and my soul be lost now
If I die and my soul be lost now
If I die and my soul be lost now
If I die and my soul be lost
Nobody's fault but mine
