I heard this song on the radio earlier today and had it stuck in my head
all day. It's three seperate guitar parts I think, so I've tried to
simplify it to one so you can play and sing along on an acoustic.

VERSE
There's [D5]blood in my mouth 'cause I've been biting my tongue all week[A5]

VERSE
I [D5]know I'm alone if I'm with or without you[A5]
but just [G5]bein' around you offers me another form of relief[D5]
When the lonliness leads to bad dreams

and I [G5]call you and say "C'MERE!"[D5]
CHORUS
And it's [D]bad news
Baby I'm [A]bad news
I'm just [G]bad news, bad news, bad news[D]

Baby it's [A]bad news
It's just [G]bad news, bad news, bad news[D]

'Cause you're just [B5]dam[Db5]age [D5]con-[A5]trol (Palm mute this part)
for a [B5]walk[Db5]ing [D5]corpse like [A5]me - like [D5]you

VERSE
There's a [D5]pretty young thing in front of you (Play this part softly)

and the talkin' leads to touchin'
and the [A5]touchin' leads to sex
and th[G5]en there is no mystery left[D5]
CHORUS
And it's [D]bad news
I don't [A]blame you

My friends tell me to [A]leave you
That you're [G]bad news, bad news, bad news[D]
OUTRO
You're bad news
Baby you're [G]bad news
and you're [D]bad news
Baby you're [G]bad news
and you're [D]bad news
I don't care I [G]like you
and you're [D]bad news
I don't care I [G]like you
I [A]like you[D]
