Jerry Jeff Walker – Bad News lyrics

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

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


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
