Johnny Cash – Bad News lyrics

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
