“Bad News”

Bad news travels like wild fire
Good news travels slow
They all call me wild fire
Everybody knows
Hell, I’m bad news everywhere I go

Always gettin’ in trouble
Leaving them girls that hate to see me go

They tried to hang me in Okla
Then they did in Francisco
But I wouldn’t choke, hell no, I broke that rope
They had to let me go

Son, I’m bad news everywhere I go
Always gettin’ in trouble
Leaving little girls that hate to see me go

Well, from north to south, and east to west
The story’s all the same
One state to another
I had to change my name
I’m bad news everywhere I go

Always gettin’ in trouble
Leaving them girls that hate to see me go

I picked the peaches in Georgia
I lumberjacked in Maine
Well, I been hired and fired and jailed
In any town you can name
Son, I’m bad news everywhere I go

Always gettin’ in trouble
Leaving them girls that hate to see me go
