Born Under A Bad Sign

by Booker T. Jones / William Bell

Born under a bad sign

I been down since I begin to crawl

If it wasnt for bad luck,

I wouldnt 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 wasnt for bad luck,

I wouldnt have no luck at all

I cant read, havent 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 wasnt for bad luck,

I wouldnt have no luck at all

I aint lyin

If it wasnt for bad luck

I wouldnt have no kind-a luck

If it wasnt for real bad luck,

I wouldnt 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 wouldnt have no luck at all

Yeah, my bad luck boy

Been havin bad luck all of my days, yes

via Born Under a Bad Sign Lyrics , Albert King.

Mustang Sally

H'uh, h'uh

Guess you better slow

Your Mustang down

Oh Lord, what I say now

Mustang Sally, now baby

Oh Lord

Guess you better slow

Your Mustang down

H'uh, oh yeah

Oh, I guess I have to put your flat feet

On the ground

Ha!

What I said, now

Listen!

All you wanna do is ride around Sally

(Ride Sally, ride)

All you wanna do is ride around Sally

(Ride Sally, ride)

All you wanna do is ride around Sally

(Ride Sally ride) hu'h

All you wanna do is a ride around Sally

Alright (ride Sally ride)

Well, listen

One of these early mornins', yeah

Woow!

Gonna be wipin' yo weepin' eyes

H'uh!

What I said, now

Look-a-here!

I bought you a brand new Mustang

A nineteen sixty-five, h'uh!

Now you come around

Signifyin', now woman

You don't wanna let me ride

Mustang Sally, now baby

Oh Lord!

Guess you better slow that Mustang down

H'uh! oh Lord!

Listen, you been runnin' all over town

OOOW!

I have to put your flat feet on the ground

H'uh!

What I said now, yeah

Let me say it one more time y'all

Now, all you wanna do is ride around Sally

(Ride Sally)

All you wanna do is ride around Sally

FADES-

(Ride, Sally ride)

Ride Sally.

via Wilson Pickett – Mustang Sally lyrics.

I shoulda quit you, long time ago.

I shoulda quit you, baby, long time ago.

I shoulda quit you, and went on to Mexico.

If I hada followed, my first mind.

If I hada followed, my first mind.

Ida been gone, since my second time.

I shoulda went on, when my friend come from Mexico at me.

I shoulda went on, when my friend come from Mexico at me.

I was foolin with ya baby, I let ya put me on the killin floor.

Lord knows, I shoulda been gone.

Lord knows, I shoulda been gone.

And I wouldnt have been here, down on the killin floor.

“Killing floor” refers specifically to the noted Chicago gruesome slaughterhouse areas where gore reigned (and I dont mean Al) and where septic infections from cuts caused death. Read “The Jungle” by Upton Sinclair. As legendary blues giant Howlin' Wolf intended it, it signifies entrapment in any such hellish environment, i.e. itself, war, misery, evil — it's been expressed in all these ways by the bands that covered Wolf, as this one does, moreso here emphasising the rocking melody. See my 99 iconic photos of Howlin' Wolf at www.howlingwolfphotos.com I was Wolf's great friend and photographer, as well as music student.

Welcome 2 new band members!

November 13, 2009

We now have Chris on bass and Ted on rhythm guitar. Chris also plays sax. Alas none of us can sing so the search is now on for a vocalist unless we can persuade Ian to spend more time with us.
