Tombstone shadow, stretchin' across my path
Tombstone shadow, stretchin' across my path
Every time I get some good news
Ooo, there's a shadow on my back

Saw the gypsy man, way down in San Berdoo
Said, I saw the gypsy man, way down in San Berdoo
Five dollars on the table
Ooo, keep me 'way from my tomb

Said, I got thirteen months of bad luck
Bound to be some pain
Don't you do no travelin'
Fly in no machines

Tombstone shadow, stretchin' across my path
Every time I get some good news
Ooh, there's a shadow on my back

The man gave me a luck charm, cost five dollars more
Said, "Put some on your pillow, and put some on your door"
He said, "Take a long vacation
Ooo, for thirteen months or more"

Tombstone shadow, stretchin' across my path
Tombstone shadow, stretchin' across my path
Every time I get some good news
Ooo, there's a shadow on my back
