Hard Luck

Climax Blues Band
From the day I was born
I was a nothin' at all
But a troubled man on the street
My friends tried to help me
But I was too far gone
To hear what they were sayin' to me
I was deaf, dumb and blind
Just out of my mind
In the life of the wild and free

I hooked up with a crowd
That let loose a little loud
But it felt like a family
A-makin' money in the city
But it wasn't always pretty
Just gon' be what I was gonna be
That life came and took me
From [?]
'Cause it wasn't about to set me free

They call me hard luck, hard luck
'Cause hard luck was my middle name
They call me hard luck, hard luck
Hard luck was my middle name
I've had so much bad luck
Feel I'm goin' up in flames

Now I've had some funky situations
That required investigations
And they tried to put it all on me
See I was [?] and alive
And always survivin'
A-livin' a life of luxury
In a house upon the hill
I'd be livin' there still
If I didn't have a habit to feed

Now I did this fifteen and a ten
And I remember feelin' then
That I'd never do a stretch again
And as soon as I was free
I'd get back to bein' me
With the bottle and the Mary Jane
All the women and the cars
And the backstreet bars
Where everybody knew my name

They call me hard luck, hard luck
'Cause hard luck was my middle name
They call me hard luck, hard luck
Hard luck was my middle name
I've had so much bad luck
Feel I'm goin' up in flames

So as I sit here lookin' back
On what I have become
Ain't surprised that I took a fall
Had no patience or respect
Only madness and neglect
And now I'm starin' at the same old wall
There comes a time in your life
Where the change would do you good
But I've never found the time at all

They call me hard luck, hard luck
'Cause hard luck was my middle name
They call me hard luck, hard luck
Hard luck was my middle name
I've had so much bad luck
Feel I'm goin' up in flames

They call me hard luck, hard luck
'Cause hard luck was my middle name
They call me hard luck, hard luck
Hard luck was my middle name
I've had so much bad luck
Feel I'm goin' up in flames
