Lyrics:

Me & Bonnie Parker

Written by: Markus Rill



My name is Roy Thornton, you may not have heard of me
But you've heard of the woman made my life a misery
She wore my ring upon her finger and a tattoo 'bove her knee
Makin' love it made me smile for it said "Roy & Bonnie"

Me & Bonnie Parker all through our high school years
We laughed and danced together and I dried away her tears
Me & Bonnie Parker until Barrow came along
Well, I treated Bonnie right and then she turned and did me wrong

When I got sent to prison, Bonnie said she'd wait for me
But her and that new beau of hers went on a killing spree
I read about them in the papers, headlines are full of Bonnie & Clyde
But it would still be Roy & Bonnie if I could just hold her for awhile

Me & Bonnie Parker all through our high school years
We laughed and danced together and I dried away her tears
Me & Bonnie Parker until Barrow came along
Well, I treated Bonnie right and then she turned and did me wrong

Barrow made her happy, like she deserved to be
So on the day they died, I cried for Bonnie
And I cried for Clyde

Me & Bonnie Parker all through our high school years
We danced and laughed together and I dried away her tears
Me & Bonnie Parker until Barrow came along
I treated Bonnie right but she didn't stay for long
