"MODERN DAY BONNIE AND CLYDE" 
Travis Tritt
CD: Down the Road I Go
Columbia Records
Writers: Walt Aldridge / James LeBlanc
Tab updated by: Phillip Carter
I'm using a tab that someone else wrote out.  He had the chord changes
right, but I think the chords themselves need a little bit of work.  Let's
try it like this. I was watching the video and I'm pretty 100% certain this
is the way that Travis plays it.  Hope this helps you all!

Tune your guitar to double drop d so that the tuning is DADGBD.  now capo
the guitar first fret and for each chord play:

(Everything in relation to the capo)

D7 = 000230 (hammer on the third fret on the 4th and 5th strings)
            (listen to the song for this timing)
G7 = 550030 
A7 = 002222
C7 = x2120x

(Dobro Intro)
D7 - G7 - D7
G7 - D7
A7 - C7 - G7 - D7
               
[D7] Well, it's a long way to Richmond, [G7] rollin' north on Ninety-[D7
]five, With a [G7] redhead ridin' shotgun and a pistol by by my [D7] side,
[A7] Tearin' down that highway like a [C7] modern day [G7] Bonnie and [D7] Clyde.
                    
We [D7] met at a truckstop,  [G7] Johnson City, Tennes-[D7]see,
I was [G7] gassin' up my Firebird, when I heard her callin' [D7] me,
Said, [ A7] "Which way are you headed, boy, -- [C7] Do you need [G7]
some compa-[D7]ny?"

She had me [D7] stoppin' at a  Quik-Mart [G7] before we made it out of
[D7] town, [G7] Next thing she was runnin' at me, tellin' me to "Lay that
hammer [D7] down, 'Cause there's a [A7] man right behind me,  [C7] doin'
his [G7] best to slow me [D7] down!"

[D7] Yeah, and it's a long way to Richmond,  [G7] rollin' north on
Ninety-[D7]five, With a [G7] redhead ridin' shotgun and a pistol by my [D7]
side, [A7] Tearin' down that highway like a [C7] modern day [G7] Bonnie and
[D7]Clyde.

(Dobro bridge) 
D7 - G7 - D7,
G7 -  D7
A7 - C7 - G7 - D7

[D7] Well, we pulled up to a motel, [G7]in the middle of the [D7] night,
[G7] We were countin' all the money,  smokin' stolen Marlboro [D7]
Lights, Lord, we [A7] never saw 'em comin' [C7] 'til they read [G7] us
both our [D7] rights.

[D7] Yeah, and it's a long way to Richmond, [G7] rollin' north on
Ninety-[D7] five, [G7] With a sheriff right beside me,  pistol pointin' at my
[D7] side,-- oh, lord, Such a dis-[A7]-appointing ending for this [C7] modern
day [G7] Bonnie and [D7] Clyde.

(Dobro outro) 
Yeah, D7 - G7 - D7
Hey, G7- D7
Well, A7 - C7 -  G7 - D7

Have fun!
