I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide
by
ZZ Top
 
Deguello
©1979
 
     Deguello (spanish for 'beheading') was the first ZZ Top album in three years after the band released their 1976 album, Tejas, and continued the Texas trio's winning streak.

Most ZZ Top fans consider Deguello to be the last link to the band's characteristic early blues-rock. It includes a pair of the group's biggest classic rock staples - the funky "Cheap Sunglasses," and the anthemic "I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide."

Lyrics to I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide:

Well I was rollin' down the road in some cold blue steel,
I had a bluesman in the back, and a beautician at the wheel.
We're going downtown in the middle of the night
We was 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-heeled shoes,
They smokin' Lucky Strikes, wearing nylon too.
Welcome back, we're nationwide.
Yeah we bad, we're nationwide.
 
Well I was movin' down the road in my V-8 Ford,
I had a shine on my boots, I had my sideburns low.
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.
Yeah I'm bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, I'm nationwide.
