Bad News
Recorded by Boxcar Willie
Written by John D. Loudermilk

Well bad news travels like wild fire

Good news travels slow
And they call me old wild fire everywhere I go

Lord I'm bad news everybody knows
Always gettin' into trouble
And leaving little girls
That hate to see me go

Well I've picked peaches down in Georgia

I lumber jacked up in Maine

And I've been hired and fired and jailed
In every state you can name

Repeat #2 Cause I'm ...

Well from north to south

From east to west the story is the same

From one state to the other
I had to change my name

Repeat #2

Well they tried to hang me down in Oakland

They did in San Francisco

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

Repeat #2
