song lyric about the larcenist lovers, Bonnie & Clyde

 

Dead-end Road

 

Bonnie lived a life of boredom in her little Texas town

Until she met a man who said he’d turn her world around,

Clyde promised her a future where adventure overflowed

So they headed out to find it on that dead-end road.

 

Side-by-side and gun-to-gun

Those lovers never slowed,

They couldn’t wait to start out

On that dead-end road.

 

So they headed ‘cross the country with the lawmen on their tail

And left a bloody path behind to mark their bandit trail,

As friends and fam’ly joined them on their lawless episodes

They would carve their names in hist’ry on that dead-end road.

 

Side-by-side and gun-to-gun

Those lovers never slowed,

They couldn’t wait to get back

On that dead-end road.

 

And the body count grew higher as they raced along their way

They killed two men on Easter and another Christmas day,

That road at last would run out and their plans would all explode

In a hailstorm of bullets on that dead-end road.

 

Side-by-side from every gun

Those bullets never slowed

Until they took those lovers

Off that dead-end road
