Butch and The Kid

Sometimes I wish that Butch and the Kid                                                                                                  Had never left the old neighborhood                                                                                              Or if they did, they got clean away you know                                                                                                            As if the banks in Bolivia were really made of gold                                                                        And that final hail of bullets was only raindrops                                                                                    Falling on their heads                                                                                                                            I wish that you and I could just fade away                                                                                  Like Paul Newman and Robert Redford                                                                                                       Next to that last frame in the final scene                                                                                      Leaving someone behind us like your mother or Catherine Ross                                                      Who would never cry                                                                                                                                Then years later, we could come back and do it all again                                                                               Only better the next time
