I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide

Album: Degüello (1979)
  • Well I was rollin' down the road in some cold blue steel
    I had a blues man in back, and a beautician at the wheel
    We going downtown in the middle of the night
    We laughing and I'm jokin' and we feelin' alright
    Oh I'm bad, I'm nationwide
    Yes I'm bad, I'm nationwide

    Easin' down the highway in a new Cadillac
    I had a fine fox in front, I had three more in the back
    They sportin' short dresses, wearin' spike-heel shoes
    They smokin' Lucky Strikes, and wearing nylons too
    'Cause we bad, we nationwide
    Yeah we bad, we nationwide

    Well I was movin' down the road in my V-8 Ford
    I had a shine on my boots, I had my sideburns lowered
    With my New York brim and my gold tooth displayed
    Nobody give me trouble 'cause they know I got it made
    I'm bad, I'm nationwide
    Well I'm bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, I'm nationwide, yes man! Writer/s: FRANK BEARD, BILLY GIBBONS, DUSTY HILL
