Thirteen lyrics by Johnny Cash



Thirteen lyrics by Johnny Cash

Written by Glen Danzig (Misfits, Danzig) especially for Johnny Cash, Thirteen is a woefully bleak tale of basically a kid that never had a chance. Thirteen can be found on Cash's American Recordings album.

Lyrics:

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
