The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde Author unknown Bonnie and Clyde were pretty lookin' people But I can tell you people, they were the devil's children Bonnie and Clyde began their evil doin' One lazy afternoon down Savannah way They robbed a store and hightailed out of that town Got clean away in a stolen car and waited till the heat died down. Bonnie and Clyde, advanced their reputation And made the graduation into the banking business Reach for the sky, Sweet talkin' Clyde would holler As Bonnie loaded dollars in the "Dewlap Bag" Now one brave man, he tried to take them alone They left him lyin' in a pool of blood And laughed about it all the way home. (instrumental) Bonnie and Clyde got to be public enemy number one Runnin' and hidin' from every American lawman's gun They used to laugh about dyin' But deep inside 'em they knew That pretty soon they'd be lyin' Beneath the ground together Pushin' up daisies that welcome the sun and the morning dew. Actin' upon reliable information A Federal deputation laid a deadly ambush Bonnie and Clyde came walkin' in the sunshine A half a dozen carbine opened up on them (machine gun noises). Bonnie and Clyde, They lived a lot together And finally Together they died. GG apr97
