Born Under A Bad Sign – Albert King!

Born under a bad sign
Been down since I began to crawl
If it wasn’t for bad luck
You know I wouldn’t have no luck at all

Hard luck and trouble been my only friend
I’ve been on my own, ever since I was ten

Born under a bad sign
Been down since I began to crawl
If it wasn’t for bad luck
You know I wouldn’t have no luck at all

I can’t read, I didn’t learn how to write
My whole life has been, one big fight

Born under a bad sign
I been down since I began to crawl
If it wasn’t for bad luck
I say I wouldn’t have no luck at all, that ain’t no lie

You know if it wasn’t for bad luck
I wouldn’t have no kinda luck
If it wasn’t for real bad luck
I wouldn’t have no luck at all

You know wine and women, is all I crave
A big-legged woman is gonna carry me to my grave

Born under a bad sign
I been down since I began to crawl
If it wasn’t for bad luck
I tell you I wouldn’t have no luck at all

Yeah, I’m a bad luck boy
Been having bad luck all of my days, yes
