Listen to this stunning rendition of  an instant classic: "Born Under a Bad Sign"!

Robben Ford recorded it in 1988 and appeared in his "Talk To Your Daughter", a great record rich of intriguing blues covers like the title track and "Wild About You (Can't Hold Out Much Longer)".




The original was present in the album with the same name published by Albert King in 1967.



"Born under a bad sign
Been down since I begin to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck
You know I wouldn't have no luck at all
Hard luck and trouble is my only friend
I've been on my own ever since I was ten
Born under a bad sign
Been down since I begin to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck
You know 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 say I wouldn't have no luck at all
I ain't no lyin'
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 begin to crawl
If it wasn't for bad luck
I tell I wouldn't have no luck at all
Yeah, my bad luck boy
Been havin' bad luck all of my days, yes
