Brother James got money,
Put it in a ‘29 ford,
Told everybody he was gonna,
Hit that open road.
That was a mean old racer,
V8, yessiree,
Lord, brother James knocked every,
Leaf off the tree. (Lead guitar riff #1)

Some said it was bad luck, (Lead guitar riff #2)
Some said it was a bad old way to go,
Boys it’s bad luck here,
Bad luck everywhere you go

Sister Mattie’s husband,
He’s workin’ up the farm,
Now she got another man
Put a mule in the barn
Telephone ring this mornin’,
News was all around,
Sometime last night,
Mattie’s husband come back in town

Some said it was bad luck,
Some said it was a bad old way to go,
Boys but it’s bad luck here,
Bad luck everywhere you go

I knew she didn’t love me,
Way she lay down cross the bed,
Drinkin’ that moonshine whiskey
Talkin’ out her head
I was born for trouble,
And bad luck never strayed,
Everybody knows a sandfoot woman,
Tote a razor blade

Some said it was bad luck,
Some said it was a bad old way to go,
But you know it’s bad luck here,
Bad luck everywhere you go
