Title: Born Under a Bad Sign

Born under 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
Been on my own ever since I was ten
Born under a bad sign
I been down since I begin to crawl
If it wan't for bad luck,
I wouldn't have no luck at all
I can't read, haven't learned to write
My whole life has been one big fight
Born under bad sign
Been down since I begin to crawl
If it wan't for bad luck,
I wouldn't have no luck at all . .
Wine and women is all I crave
A big legd woman is gonna carry me to my grave
Born under a bad sign
I been down since I begin to crawl
If it wan't for bad luck,
I wouldn't have no luck at all
If it wan't for bad luck
I wouldn't have no no no no no no luck at all
Yeah, my bad luck boy

Born Under a Bad Sign

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Born Under a Bad Sign" is a song written by Booker T. Jones (music) and William Bell (lyrics) originally recorded by Albert King as the title track for the album Born Under a Bad Sign released in 1967. Several cover versions of the song exist, most notably by British rock group Cream and American rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix and even Homer Simpson.

Style and Influence

The style of "Born Under a Bad Sign" is hallmark of Albert King in the late 60s. The lead guitar is bright, nasal and cutting, partly because of Albert King's choice of a custom Gibson guitar with neck pickup selected. The looping bass line is composed of a C# pentatonic or blues scale while the piano and horn accompaniment remains major in its tonality. The unique mix of otherwise minor and major modes give the song a bright but harrowing sound.

The wide assortment of cover versions demonstrates Albert King's ability to influence not only blues guitar, but also rock guitar. It is notable that Jimi Hendrix's cover of "Born Under a Bad Sign" is essentially an extended guitar solo that explores Albert King's unique phrasing.
