"Bad Company" is a song by the British hard rock band Bad Company. It was released as the third single from their debut album Bad Company in 1974, although it did not chart (in America). Co-written by the group's lead singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke, the song's meaning comes from a book on Victorian morals. The song uses the same chords and piano figure as Joni Mitchell's song "Woodstock" from 1970. Rodgers told Spinner that he decided to go with a song with same name as the band as, "I think because it had never really been done, as far as I knew. I thought it was interesting to come out as a brand-new band with its own theme song." (Source Bad Company Songfacts).

Always on the run.
Towards the rising sun.
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. I can't deny,
Bad Company, until the day I die. until the day I die. until the day I die...
Rebel souls. Deserters we've been called,
Chose a gun and threw away the sun.
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, until the day I die. until the day I die...
Hey hey, Bad Company, I can't deny...
Bad Company, until the day I die.
It's Bad Company. Oh yeah yeah.
Bad Company, till the day I die.
(Subdued vocal during the outro lead)
Till the day I die Oh Yeah Tell me that you are not a thief
Oh But I am
It's the way I play
Dirty for dirty
Oh Somebody Double-crossed me
We're Bad company
Kill in cold blood
