Tombstone shadow, stretchin' across my path.
Tombstone shadow, stretchin' across my path.
Ev'ry time I get some good news, ooh,
There's a shadow on my back.

Saw the gypsy man, 'way down in san berdoo.
Said, I saw the gypsy man, 'way down in san berdoo.
Five dollars on the table, ooh,
Keep me 'way from my tomb.
Oh! oh!

Said I got thirteen months of bad luck,
Bound to be some pain.
Don't you do no trav'lin',
Fly in no machines.
