Born Under A Bad Sign
Richard Hawley Lyrics


What are you like? You've had a right life
And taken a long ride, but oh what a cost

And all of your life, staring at white lines
Reading the road signs, and oh what a loss

Sleeping late in the afternoon, playing your guitar

Born under a bad sign
Born under a bad sign

Sleeping late in the afternoon, staying out till dawn

Born under a bad sign
Born under a bad sign

Now your laying in the afterglow
And there's something that she wants to know
Are you going be the one to say
You belong to me, you belong to me

Born under a bad sign
Born under a bad sign

Sleeping late in the afternoon, playing your guitar

Born under a bad sign
Born under a bad sign
You've had a right life
Born under a bad sign
Everybody knows
Everybody knows
Everybody knows
Born under a bad sign
Born under a bad sign

The most criminally underrated artist of the last decade

GANGLAND PODCASTS

AGREED, AND IN CAPITALS TOO Liam

Andy Bunyan

Just five minutes before seeing your comment I was thinking that Richard Hawley is matched only by Neil Hannon in musical capability. Both are superb to listen to.

olaf belitz

thats right I love sorry I lost my way what en songwriter singer en guitar player love this stuff hero .

Niall Jarvis

I kind of like that tho. It makes his shows seem more intimate. As for his music...it's so good and I've introduced several people to it. (all are now fans). The videos for the songs are superb too. I'd recommend all/any of his albums and his website will tell you about any forthcoming shows.
He's a 'normal' and approachable person off stage and the track by track videos on here are well worth seeing as he discusses writing/making/recording tracks on the album.

The Magnificent Majunior

Absolutely. I think both Richard Hawley and Neil Hannon both take that honor, though.

Was sitting in a hotel lobby in Earl's Court on vacation last week and I heard this and had to know who this was. I quickly shazamed it on my phone. Never heard of mr. Richard Hawley before. Now his music is haunting me even when I'm not listening to it. It was meant to be, this trip to London from Chicago in order to discover this magnificent musician and poet.

Stuart Williams

Same here I heard this song on Radio 2 and I thought it was a record from the past that I had missed I have been a fan ever since I didn't realize he was in The Longpigs which were a great band too.

I found him 6 years ago and think of him singing to me wearing a leather jacket in biker bar XP

That's fate smiling on you. I love how you discovered him and it was meant to be. Thanks for sharing a positive happening
