Tombstone Shadow (Live 1970)

Tombstone Shadow (Live 1970)

Creedence Clearwater Revival

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.

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, ooh,
For thirteen months or more."
Oh, lord!

Tombstone shadow, stretchin' across my path.
Tombstone shadow, stretchin' across my path.
Every time I get some good news, ooh,
There's a shadow on my back.

Oh, oh, lord!
Oh, lord!
