Bad Company Lyrics

Artist: Bad Company
Album: Bad Company

Bad Company
Bad Company

Company Always on the run
Destiny is the rising sun
Oh I was born 6-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 sun
Now these towns
They all know our name 6-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

We're Bad company
Kill in cold blood

I believe the line is "Chose a gun and threw away the sword" not "threw away the sun".
by Genji on 11/2/2008 9:37pm
No... I do believe it's "threw away the Son".
by Norman on 11/6/2008 3:20pm
Of course it's threw away the sun!
by Josh on 7/6/2009 9:31pm
If you listen at 1:45 he puts emphasis on the "ord" if you listen to the song and lyrics at the same time it's defiantly sword.
by Richard on 3/31/2010 4:15pm
It's obvious to anybody with anything at all between their ears that it's "sword". Why you throw away the sun for Christ's sake?
by Crank on 5/28/2010 3:25pm
I think they say sun in reference to choosing darkness, you know one of those metaphor things. At least that's what and why I think that.
by Dean on 8/3/2010 2:28pm
It is definately "sun". I just saw them live in Boston & had front row tickets. Paul Rodgers sang "threw away the sun." It seems pretty obvious anyway - sun rhymes with "gun".
by kelvin on 8/19/2010 10:49pm
cool song. I think it is sun.
by sam on 9/6/2010 12:38pm
It is sun,refering to no longer being a goodguy taking up a gun to getrevenge on the ones who Doublecrossed him and did him wrong. The darkside in otherwords,Throwing away the sun for darkness.

It's "...threw away the Son." You have to understand those days back then when everyone was a God Fearing person. In old times, if you turned to killing, thieving, and so on, people referred to you as a "person that threw away the Son" and turned away from the teachings of the bible. I am not overly religous, just somewhat of a history buff

its i was born witha shotgun in my hand, not 6 gun
by Chewer of Hats on 3/17/2011 6:31am
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

that isnt even in the song. not in mine anyway.

and the first 6-gun is shotgun
the second 6-gun is the death punch sound.

Also, its definitely son/sun. not sword.
by Me on 5/3/2011 3:11pm
Um...Chewer...This song is a lot older than you and FFDP. Go talk to your parents about music.

Just sayn

Agreed. "Sun."
by PoProcks on 5/13/2011 8:37pm
I'd say its sun as in always on the run and hiding and being in prison.
by Bonnie on 5/21/2011 8:30am
I think that it is "sun" and not sword. Five Finger Punch is singing the words "sun". Sun meaning, the light, as opposed to "darkness". Chose darkness over light. I think this song is about a desserting company in the Civil War.
by Someone on 6/27/2011 6:54pm
Chewer, you're knowledge of music seems limited. This is the original 'bad company' by the band 'bad company', not the cover done by ffdp. This is a much better version anyway
by Gordon Stables on 8/25/2011 10:35am
I think that all of you need to visit a hearing specialist,the verse is - "Rebel souls deserters we are called, chose a gun and threw away the sword" it's about soldiers who fought in the American Civil War, deserted, threw away their swords, chose a gun and became outlaws, how thick are you lot, very thick indeed.

*cough*GordonSucks*cough* *cough*

by Rayning Blood on 4/12/2012 3:02pm
Don't bother entering the show Noodles,you have no talent
by Steve in Granbury tex on 7/10/2012 4:45pm
I don't know what it is , I ain't from around here.
by M on 1/25/2013 9:21pm
The original liner notes in my vinyl album has "threw away the son". It is not sun or sword.
by Joe on 4/15/2013 9:58pm
I recorded Bad Co on my DVR live from the Hard Rock in 2008. Let me assure you all he says SWORD. Clearly. Issue over.
by Youssouf Daigana on 4/22/2013 6:34am
Badco is all my youth...
