Creedence Clearwater Revival - Tombstone Shadow lyrics

Tombstone shadow
Stretchin' across my path.
Tombstone shadow
Stretchin' across my path.
Ev'ry time I get some good news,
Ooh, 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,
Ooh, keep me 'way from my tomb.
Oh! Oh!

Said, I got thirteen months of bad luck,
Bound to be some pain.
Don't you do no trav'lin',
Fly in no machines.
Tombstone shadow
Stretchin' across my path.
Ev'ry 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,
Ooh, for thirteen months or more."
Oh, Lord!

Tombstone shadow
Stretchin' across my path.
Tombstone shadow
Stretchin' across my path.
Ev'ry time I get some good news,
Ooh, there's a shadow on my back.
Oh, oh, Lord!

Oh, Lord!
