Not sure if you've tried this but there's a free program called GIMP that should have a warp tool - link to a tutorial here as I've found GIMP a bit tricky to navigate round when i've looked at in the past.

thanks Stewart, you just forgot the link...
Can I suggest that you probably dont Google it. WIth the new settings that customise adverts, lord only knows what you might get for the next few months

Try this steve:

http://pixlr.com/editor/

Write your text, then select layer > merge visible and use the pinch tool. Theres also free transform and free distort which should do what you want.

Yeah I've used it once or twice when away from my copy of photoshop. I think prob the free transform and distort will be more what your after. Just remember to flatten the layer before trying it.
