The Legend Of Bonnie & Clyde

In the style of

Merle Haggard


bonnie was
a waitress
in a small cafe
clyde barrow was
the rounder that
took her away

they both robbed
and killed until
both of them died
so goes the legend
of bonnie and clyde

the poem that
she wrote of
the life that they led
told of the lawmen
left dying or dead

some say that clyde
made her
life a shame
but the legend made
bonnie the
head of the game

the rampage grew
wilder with
each passing day
the odds growing
smaller with
each getaway

with the end
growing closer
the harder
they fought
with blood
on their hands
they were bound
to get caught

they drove back
from town
on one bright
summer day
when a man
they'd befriended
stepped out
in the way

with no thought
of dyin' they
pulled to the side
but death lay there
waiting for
bonnie and clyde

two years of runnin'
was ended that day
for robbin' and killin'
they both had to pay

but we'll always
remember how
they lived and died
so goes the legend
of bonnie and clyde
bonnie and clyde
bonnie and clyde
