W*O*L*D is a Harry Chapin song released on the Short Stories album. The song was popular in concerts. Harry would substitute the name of the call letters of the local radio station for W*O*L*D at one point in the song, much to the crowd's delight.

W*O*L*D was the inspiration for the novel A Good Man by Larry Baker.
