Well it's a long way to Richmond, rollin' north on 95
With a red head ridin' shot-gun and a pistol by my side
Tearin' down that highway like a modern day Bonnie and Clyde

We met at a truck stop, Johnson City, Tennessee
I was gasin' up my Firebird when I heard her calling me
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
'Cuz there's a man right behind me doing his best to slow me down

Yeah, well it's a long way to Richmond, rollin' north on 95
With a red head ridin' shot-gun and a pistol by my side
Tearin' down that highway like a modern day Bonnie and Clyde

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 coming, till 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
Such a disappointing ending for this modern day Bonnie and Clyde, yeah
