Bonnie and Clyde were pretty looking people
But I can tell you, people, they were the devil's children
Bonnie and Clyde began their evil doing
one lazy afternoon down Savannah way.
They robbed a store and high-tailed 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 talking Clyde would holler,
as Bonnie loaded dollars in the dewlap bag.
Now one brave man, he tried to take them alone
They left him lying in a pool of blood,
and laughed about it all the way home.
Bonnie and Clyde got to be public enemy number one
Running and hiding from every American lawman's gun
They used to laugh about dying,
but deep inside them they knew
that pretty soon they'd be lying
beneath the ground together,
pushing up daisies to welcome the sun and the morning dew.
Acting upon reliable information,
a federal deputation laid a deadly ambush
When Bonnie and Clyde came walking in the sunshine,
a half a dozen carbines opened up on them.
Bonnie and Clyde, they lived a lot together,
and finally together they died.
