Thirteen Lyrics

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: American Recordings

Bad luck wind been blowin' at my back
I was born to bring trouble to wherever I'm at
Got the number 13 tattooed on my neck
When the ink starts to itch, then the black will turn to red

I was born in the soul of misery
Never had me a name
They just gave me the number when I was young

Got a long line of heartache, I carry it well
The list of lives I've broken reach from here to hell
Bad luck wind been blowin' at my back
I pray you don't look at me, I pray I don't look back

I was born in the soul of misery
Never had me a name
They just gave me the number when I was young

I was born in the soul of misery
Never had me a name
They just gave me the number when I was young

They just gave me the number when I was young

Missing Lyrics:
There's a verse missing here, which goes as follows:
Gonna find me a preacher man, confess'em all I've done; or you can catch me with the devil, playin' twenty-one; bad luck win been blowin' at my back; I pray you don' look'at me I pray I don't look back;

Like all of Johnny's songs, it's a terrific example of the bridge between prisoner life and a person's normal day to day life. True philosophy through song. =)
