John D. Loudermilk

Yeah, well, I picked peaches in Georgia,
And I've lumberjacked in Maine
Been hired and fired and been in jail,
In 'bout every state you can name

Chorus:
Hell, I'm bad news honey, bad news every place I go
'Cause I'm always getting into trouble
Leavin' them girls early - hate to see me go

They say bad news is like wildfire, 'n good news comes too slow
They always call me wildfire wherever I go

Chorus

You know they tried to hang me in Oakland, tried it in Frisco too
I wouldn't choke, I broke the rope, they had to let me go

Chorus
