Born Under A Bad Sign lyrics



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.
