Sam Cooke - Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen Lyrics

Nobody knows the trouble that I've seen
Nobody knows my sorrow
Nobody knows the trouble that I've seen
Glory hallelujah

Nobody knows the trouble that I've seen
Nobody knows my, my sorrow
Nobody knows the trouble that I've seen
Glory hall - glory hallelujah

Sometimes I'm up and sometimes I'm down
Oh, yes Lord
You know sometimes I'm almost to the ground
Oh, oh yes Lord

Still, nobody knows the trouble that I've seen
Nobody, nobody knows my, my sorrow
Nobody knows the trouble that I've seen
Glory hallelujah

If you get there before I do
Oh, oh yes Lord
Don't forget to tell all my friends I'm comin' too
Whoa, oh yes Lord

Still, nobody knows the trouble that I've seen
Nobody knows my sorrow
Nobody knows the trouble that I've seen
Glory hall - hallelujah

    Sam Cooke is the greatest singer ever. No one has ever come close and this is a true testament to the sublime voice that transcends all music.

  57. Ianthy Layne

    Indeed Sam, sometimes I'm up and sometimes i'm down, but God knows. Fitting song with heart felt passion.

  58. Richard Brown

    Soul from the heart......the very best ever! RIP

  59. Jeremiah Thompson

    Sam Cooke The Greatest Singer who ever lived.

  60. Jeremiah Thompson

    Renaldo is absolutely right. I saw the autopsy photos, and it is a fact that Sam was fighting for his life. It is a shame that people don't realize how things are in the world that Sam lived in. The story in the papers was completely fabricated. The truth is that Sam Cooke was a threat to Whites, and the Mafia was hired by those in the industry who wanted to control Sam Cooke's music. He was the very first Black man to own the rights to his own music. it wasn't Ray Charles, and Sam Cooke was bigger, and better than Frank Sinatra, and Elvis. The anointing on his voice was a gift from God. As his father prayed while Sam Cooke was in his mother's womb; the melodic voice of the Arch Angel whose name cannot be translated. A voice so melodic; that it has the power to heal, and change the very atmosphere. He was protected, but the murder of his son affected him deeply, and left him vulnerable. They drowned his son in the pool, and threatened to kill his entire family. Sam Cooke was in fact murdered by the Mafia/ Government; Like Dr. Martin L. King Jr., Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, Otis Redding, and the list is too long to name all who was essentially murdered including Jackie Wilson, slipped him a Mickie. Let it be known that the newspaper printed fabrications of the truth surrounding the deaths of the aforementioned, and they continue to do so until this very day.

  61. Travis Murphy

    One of the best

  62. Labaron26

    It's a shame that personal problems ended his life.....and the World lost a great vocalist.

  63. Eamon Clyne

    The Greatest ever !!

  64. Troy Woodward

    I cant believe there are any dislikes, this is REAL music

  65. Gummy Bear

    At 3:04 I look up if Sam Cooke is alive... Then the results pop up and the ending fits it nicely... But I was close to crying...

  66. randall scott burress

    Sam Cooke gets right in your soul?? STILL*

  67. Zboy

    They need to make a movie about Sam Cooke and his travels through love and sorrows. Through music and blues. I would love to watch that movie time and time again.

  68. colsome miah

    Sam just has to sing the word "Oh" with its swirling rivulets for me....intoxicaing

  69. Timothy Davis

    Mr. Soul Sam Cooke
    The wonderful songs he leave us,
    He will always live forever in ours Hearts, especially my...
    Rest In Peace

  70. Tim Rijnbeek

    We the people make the glory glory hallelujah

  74. Ken Ellis

    Sam has a way of touching your soul.  He is dearly missed.

  75. colsome miah

    Sam had those inflections in his voice that underscore the lyrics in Boldface..angst ridden, pasionate and haunting

  76. robert courtney

    You sir are the best.

  77. Delroy Newton Grant


  78. Elissa Schornstein

    Beautiful Sam.

  79. Buck Lilli

    This is a Negro spiritual from the days of slavery. This is not a new soul song, but it is so beautiful.

  80. Elissa Schornstein

    Perfection. Sam could sing anything and make it so beautiful. Sam we were robbed of your great talent and miss you very much.

  81. Mohamed Farah


  82. Elg Dixon

    Nobody sings it better than Sam.

  83. little1shot

    Sorry folks but Al Green is right up there with him. It will always be a matter of opinion as to which is better..........

  84. Zwakele Mgabhi

    Only singer that comes close to Sam Cooke is Gregory Porter

  85. Tony Laurent

    Sam Cooke was and remains 'the man'. Nobody has matched him since. His Live at Harlem album in Miami is the best at a sublime peak. Only James Brown at the Apollo comes close.

  86. Nuh SAUNDERS

    Needed this this very night.

  87. Michael Givens

    I feel like you Sam.

  88. Golfnut

    The Seeker's version is better.
