“If it wasn’t for bad luck, I wouldn’t have no luck at all.”

“I can’t read, I don’t know how to write, my whole life has been one big fight.”
Albert King, “Born Under a Bad Sign”
(written by Booker T. Jones and William Bell)

“Born Under a Bad Sign” was King’s best-known song and has been covered by many artists (from British rock group Cream, Paul Rodgers, Canadian guitarist Pat Travers, American rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix to cartoon character Homer Simpson)
