Ha ha ha come on bad news ha ha

Well bad news travels like wild fire goodnews travels slow

They all call me Wildfire ha ha cause everybody knows

I'm bad news everywhere I go

Always gettin' in a trouble and leaving little girls that hate to see me go

They tried to hang me in Oakland and the did in Francisco

But I wouldn't choke I broke their rope and they had to let me go

Cause I'm bad news everywhere I go

Always gettin' in a trouble and leaving little girls that hate to see me go

Now from north to south east to west the story is the same

From one state to another I have to change my name

Cause I'm bad news everywhere I go

Always gettin' in a trouble and leaving little girls that hate to see me go

[ dobro ]

Well now I've picked peaches in Georgia I lumberjacked in Maine

I've been hired fired and jailed in any town you can name

Cause I'm bad news everywhere I go

Always gettin' in a trouble and leaving little girls that hate to see me go
