    You’ve read the story of Jesse James
    of how he lived and died.
    If you’re still in need;
    of something to read,
    here’s the story of Bonnie and Clyde.

    Now Bonnie and Clyde are the Barrow gang
    I’m sure you all have read.
    how they rob and steal;
    and those who squeal,
    are usually found dying or dead.

    There’s lots of untruths to these write-ups;
    they’re not as ruthless as that.
    their nature is raw;
    they hate all the law,
    the stool pidgeons, spotters and rats.

    They call them cold-blooded killers
    they say they are heartless and mean.
    But I say this with pride
    that I once knew Clyde,
    when he was honest and upright and clean.

    But the law fooled around;
    kept taking him down,
    and locking him up in a cell.
    Till he said to me;
    “I’ll never be free,
    so I’ll meet a few of them in hell”

    The road was so dimly lighted
    there were no highway signs to guide.
    But they made up their minds;
    if all roads were blind,
    they wouldn’t give up till they died.

    The road gets dimmer and dimmer
    sometimes you can hardly see.
    But it’s fight man to man
    and do all you can,
    for they know they can never be free.

    From heart-break some people have suffered
    from weariness some people have died.
    But take it all in all;
    our troubles are small,
    till we get like Bonnie and Clyde.

    If a policeman is killed in Dallas
    and they have no clue or guide.
    If they can’t find a fiend,
    they just wipe their slate clean
    and hang it on Bonnie and Clyde.

    There’s two crimes committed in America
    not accredited to the Barrow mob.
    They had no hand;
    in the kidnap demand,
    nor the Kansas City Depot job.

    A newsboy once said to his buddy;
    “I wish old Clyde would get jumped.
    In these awfull hard times;
    we’d make a few dimes,
    if five or six cops would get bumped”

    The police haven’t got the report yet
    but Clyde called me up today.
    He said,”Don’t start any fights;
    we aren’t working nights,
    we’re joining the NRA.”

    From Irving to West Dallas viaduct
    is known as the Great Divide.
    Where the women are kin;
    and the men are men,
    and they won’t “stool” on Bonnie and Clyde.

    If they try to act like citizens
    and rent them a nice little flat.
    About the third night;
    they’re invited to fight,
    by a sub-gun’s rat-tat-tat.

    They don’t think they’re too smart or desperate
    they know that the law always wins.
    They’ve been shot at before;
    but they do not ignore,
    that death is the wages of sin.

    Some day they’ll go down together
    they’ll bury them side by side.
    To few it’ll be grief,
    to the law a relief
    but it’s death for Bonnie and Clyde.
