Well it's a long way to Richmond 
Rollin' north on 95
With a redhead ridin' shotgun 
And a pistol by my side
Tearin' down that highway 
Like a modern day Bonnie and Clyde 

We met at a truckstop  Johnson City, Tennessee 
I was gassin' up my Firebird 
When I heard her callin' me...mmm hmm
Said, 'Which way are you headed, boy
Do you need some company'

She had me stoppin' at a quick mart
 Before we made it out of town
Next thing she was runnin' at me
Tellin' me to lay that hammer down
'Cause there's a man right behind me
Doin' his best to slow me down

Yeah and it's a long way to Richmond 
Rollin' north on 95
With a redhead ridin' shotgun 
And a pistol by my side
Tearin' down that highway 
Like a modern day Bonnie and Clyde 

Woo...

Well we pulled up to a motel 
In the middle of the night 
We were countin' all the money 
Smokin' stolen Marlboro lights 
Lord we never saw 'em comin'
'Til they read us both our rights 

Yeah and it's a long way to Richmond 
Rollin' north on 95
With a sheriff right beside me
 Pistol pointed at my side
Oh, Lord...such a disappointing ending
For this modern day Bonnie and Clyde 
Yeah...

Whoa
Well...
Woo...hoo
