[Originally by Albert King]

Born under a bad sign
I been down since I begin to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all

Hard luck and trouble
Is my only friend
I been on my own
Ever since I was ten

Born under a bad sign
I been down since I begin to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all

I can't read
Haven't learned how to write
My whole life has been
One big fight

Born under a bad sign
I been down since I begin to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all

I ain't lyin'... <i>[solo]

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

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 begin to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have no luck at all

Yeah my bad luck boy
Been havin' bad luck all of my days, yes
