Johnny Cash

John R. "Johnny" Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003), was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author, who has been called one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is primarily remembered as a country music icon, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll—especially early in his career—as well as blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal led to Cash being inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Gospel Music Hall of Fame. more »

Bad luck wind been blowin' at my back
I was born to bring trouble to wherever I'm at
Got the number thirteen 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
