Born Under A Bad Sign

(Curtis King)
July 1, 2007
Bell/Jones
This is a blues classic, re-done with a 70's disco groove, a Chinese zither, and a guitar made to sound like a Vietnamese single-stringed "dan bau". The result is a funky, East-meets-West blues jam. This song got in the airplay rotation on XoneFM Radio (104.5 in HCMC) in Vietnam. (songeditvGiri2)
BORN UNDER A BAD SIGN

I can't read,
I can't write,
My whole life has been,
One big fight.
Born under a bad sign,
Been down since I begin to crawl,
If it wasn't for bad luck,
Wouldn't have no luck at all.

Wine and women,
All I crave
Big bad woman gonna carry me,
To my grave.
Born under a bad sign,
Been down since I begin to crawl,
If it wasn't for bad luck,
Wouldn't have no luck at all.
