The Dead played this only a few times in 1984 and 1985, almost invariably together with Down In The Bottom. The lyrics below come from 28 June 1985.

From other lyric collections, I believe Weir also sang the following verse on other occasions:

When my right hand itches, I gets money for sure
When my right hand itches, I gets money for sure
But when my left eye jumps babe, somebody got to go

Lyrics

Well I ain't superstitious, but a black cat crossed my trail
Ain't superstitious, but a black cat crossed my trail
Don't dust me with no broom babe, just might land in jail

Well the dogs be howling all round my neighbourhood
Dogs be howling all round my the neighbourhood
Sure is a bad sign babe, don't mean no earthly good

[Down In The Bottom sung here]

Well I ain't superstitious, but a black cat crossed my trail
Ain't superstitious, but a black cat crossed my trail
Don't dust me with no broom babe, just might land in jail

  • I Ain't Superstitious
