"Bad News" as written by and John Loudermilk....
Bad news travels like wild fire good news travels slow
They all call me a Wildfire cause everybody knows

That I'm bad news everywhere I go
Always a gettin' in the trouble ha ha ha
And leavin' little girls who hate to see me go

I've picked peaches down in Georgia lumber-jacked up in Maine
I've been hired and jailed in every state you can name

Because I'm bad news

From north to south from east to west the story is the same
From one state to the other I have to change my name

Because I'm bad news

Now they tried to hang me down in Oakland and they did in San Frisco
But I wouldn't choke and I broke their rope they had to let me go

Because I'm bad news
