Bonnie and Clyde’s Love Song

Legendary notorious outlaws and lovers Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow traveled through the central part of the US during the Depression-era.  Their shared longing for excitement, money and fame spurred a deadly crime spree through the central part of the United States until law enforcement finally stopped them in Louisiana, with a vengeance.

Track eight on Kellie Pickler’s album The Woman I am is titled “Bonnie and Clyde,” which is a complete girl jam. She wrote this song with her husband, and it is all about needing someone “just like Bonnie and Clyde.” The opening line to the song is,” I knew I’d be doing time.” which refers to Bonnie and Clyde and how they were wanted. Kellie Pickler has lyrics referring to how towns were not safe from Bonnie and Clyde such as,” This whole town ain’t safe with us. You and me boy are dangerous. Our love is a warning sign. I’m your Bonnie and you’re my Clyde. Kellie also has a line that says,” We’ll go down in history because Bonnie and Clyde are in the history books.”  Kellie Pickler does a great job of making Bonnie and Clyde’s love story into a modern day love song.
