Come on, bad news
Well, bad news travels like wild fire
Good news travels slow
They all call me 'Wildfire' '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 they 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 southeast
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 sure hate to see me go

Well, now I've picked peaches in Georgia
I lumber jacked 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
