BAD LUCK BONE

Spencer Bohren 2010

Leave that thing on the ground. It’s a Bad Luck Bone.
Don’t you touch it no more, just move on along.
The Devil pass through at night, drag his tail on the ground.
It’s a Bad Luck Bone, you better leave it alone.

Little brother got crazy when he came out that cell
You know a thing like that, man you never can tell.
Now there’s a look in his eyes like he’s under a spell.
That boy, he might get better, but he’ll never get well.

When the big wind come, you better head for the ditch.
It’s gonna howl like a banshee, gonna wail like a witch.
You won’t know up from down, you won’t know which end’s which.
That wind can level your house, that wind won’t leave you a stitch.

When you’re looking for money, keep your eye on the ground
Because you might find a dollar, man, a shekel, a pound.
But that money is evil, it can spin you around,
Make you act like a madman, make you look like a clown.

Stay away from that whiskey, it’ll mess with your head.
It’ll shake up your life until you wish you was dead.
It’ll break up your family, like the good book said.
So keep the cork in that bottle, leave the dog in his bed.

Leave that thing on the ground, it’s a Bad Luck Bone.
Don’t touch it no more, just ride on along.
The Devil pass through at night, drag his tail on the ground.
It’s a Bad Luck Bone, you better leave it alone.
