13 years ago i had a tubal ligation done but my tubes were tied like a shoe string is it possible that they grew back together own their own.

Yes: It's always possible no matter what type of tubal you had that the tubes can re-cannulate or come back together. Since you had your tubal in your 20s then chances of pregnancy over lifetime is appx 1 in 200.
