I overhead a very familiar melody the other day, pulled out Shazam on my iPhone and discovered it was a song called “Ain’t Got No Home” by Clarence “Frogman” Henry. Then I realized that this is something Rod Stewart incorporated in his version of “Some Guys Have All the Luck” (originally released by The Persuaders in 1973 sans this refrain). So, does Henry deserve a writing credit??
Have a listen:
