Always on the run
Destiny is the rising sun
Oh I was born six gun in my hand
Behind a gun I'll make my final stand
That's why they call me

Bad company
And I can't deny
Bad company
Till the day I die
Till the day I die
Till the day I die

Rebel souls
Deserters we are called
Chose a gun and threw away the sword
Now these towns
They all know our name six gun sound is our claim to fame
I can hear them say

Bad company
And I won't deny
Bad, bad company
Till the day I die
Till the day I die

Bad company
I can't deny
Bad company
Till the day I die
And I say it's
Bad company oh yeah, yeah
Bad company
Till the day I die oh yeah

Tell me that you are not a thief
Oh but I am
Bad company
It's the way I play
Dirty for dirty
Oh somebody double-crossed me
Double-cross, double-cross

We're bad company
Kill in cold blood

    My InterpretationI feel like this song is about the seven cowboy bandits who had to protect a Mexican village in the 1960 film, The Magnificent Seven. It makes the most sense because the song states, "these towns... they all know our name." Also, the Magnificent Seven was continued from an older movie in the 50's called Seven Samurai. Despite the songs reference to the number six, the song also includes the lyrics, "chose a gun, and throw away the sword." This could reference the discard of swords that samurais used in the 50's, and pick up in the 60's to where the seven cowboys used guns instead. Makes sense? Hopefully. Just watch The Magnificent Seven movie and maybe the song will link. Plus the song was made in 1970, ten years after the movie was made. Just a thought!!!
