The Legend Of Bonnie and Clyde
Recorded by Merle Haggard
Written and recorded by Merle Haggard and Bonnie Owens

 G                          D7    G 
Bonnie was a waitress in a small cafe
                                  D7        G 
Clyde Barrow was the rounder that took her away
                                  C            G 
They both robbed and killed until both of them died
                      D7         G 
So goes the Legend of Bonnie and Clyde

                                     D7        G 
The poems that she wrote of the life that they led
                        D7       G 
Told of the lawmen left dying or dead
                         C          G 
Some say that Clyde made her life a shame
                               D7          G 
But the legend made Bonnie the head of the game

                             D7           G 
The rampage grew wilder with each passing day
                              D7         G 
The odds growing smaller with each get a way
                                C           G 
With the end growing closer the harder they fought
                                    D7           G 
With blood on their hands they were bound to get caught

                                 D7            G 
They drove back from town on one bright summer day
                                   D7         G 
When a man they befriended stepped out in the way
                              C             G 
With no thought of dying they pulled to the side
                                D7         G 
But death lay there waiting for Bonnie and Clyde

                         D7         G 
Two years or running was ended that day
                             D7          G 
For robbing and killing they both had to pay
                              C              G 
But we'll always remember how they lived and died
                      D7         G 
So goes the Legend of Bonnie and Clyde
