Billy was 17 and mean as hell
Billy met Bonnie on a Saturday night
Bonnie was wilder than the west wind blows
But she never told billy what she left out

It's all over when your time runs out
Bonnie said, "Billy, don't you think it's time
So they knocked off a Texaco south of town
Billy woke Bonnie up about first light
Now Billy wasn't sweatin' no APB

That don't mean nothin' when your time runs out
Bonnie kept pushin' that Cadillac
Slept through Louisiana, then just past dark
Left Billy sleeping and she called the cops
Bonnie knew what she had to do

He was dreaming about Bonnie when his time ran out
The sheriff told Billy, "Boy, you're bound to die
That you done took her off against her will
The judge said, "Billy, what you got to say
Billy looked Bonnie right in the eye
But he turned around as they led him out
He said, "I'll see you down in hell when your time runs out"
