Bad News

Verse 1

Well bad news travels like a wild fire
Good news travels slow
And they call me old wild fire
Well everywhere I go

Chorus

Lord I'm bad news everybody knows
Always getting into trouble
And leaving little girls
That hate to see me go

Verse 2

Well I've picked peaches down in Georgia
I lumber jacked up in Maine
And I've been hired and fired and jailed
In every state you can name

Chorus

'Cause I'm bad news everybody knows
Always getting into trouble
And leaving little girls
That hate to see me go
Bad news [Bad news
I can tell we ain't a gonna be here long

Verse 3

Well from north to south
From east to west the story is the same
From one state to the other
I had to change my name

Chorus

Lord I'm bad news everybody knows
Always getting into trouble
And leaving little girls
That hate to see me go

Verse 4

Well they tried to hang me down in Oakland
They did in San Francisco
But I wouldn't choke and I broke their rope
And they had to let me go

Chorus

Lord I'm bad news everybody knows
Always getting into trouble
And leaving little girls
That hate to see me go
