The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, If you listen I'll tell it to you.
Clyde Barrow wouldn't work, So he chopped off his toes
In a Huntsville prison, where he got his parole.
Then he traveled to Dallas, where he found him a friend
That was Miss Bonnie Parker, and thats where it all began.
They found them a driver, for their getaway Ford
They were soon well known, through a dozen states or more.
Then Clyde's brother Buck, and his pretty wife Blanche
Joined them, and that made the famous Barrow gang.
Bonnie Parker was a poet, and Blanche Barrow was a cook
Clyde was a fast draw, and Buck was smart at books.
Their driver was a wonderful mechanic, so they say
And so they were all famous, in their own pecular way.
The stories were so many, that you couldn't read them all
The legend grew and grew, about the Barrows and the law.
The Barrow gang swept through the land, and many were their friends
But pretty soon they realized, the law was closing in.
Up near Dexter Iowa, they had a change of luck
In a gunfight with police, Clyde lost his brother Buck.
But Clyde and Bonnie got away, the second time that year
Bonnie wrote her poems, and she knew the end was near.

Clyde Barrow and Miss Bonnie Parker, came to meet a friend
They realized too late, that they had come to meet thier end.
