Résumé: In Depression-era West Texas, Bonnie, a 23 year old waitress in a diner, dreams of leaving ("Short Order World"). Clyde, who has just broken out of prison with his brother Buck Barrow, tries to steal her mother's car. Bonnie recognizes another dreamer ("This World will Remember Me") and falls in love with him. They are captured by The Sheriff and Deputy Ted, who is enamoured of Bonnie, and Clyde is given a prison sentence. Blanche, Buck's wife, had warned that "You're Goin' Back to Jail". Bonnie smuggles in a gun and Clyde again breaks out of prison, killing a deputy. They then start a life of crime, joined by Buck and Blanche, robbing banks and travelling to avoid being caught. Bonnie writes poetry about their life. They murder others and Buck himself is killed. There is intense press coverage, even publishing Bonnie's poems. As they return to visit their parents, including Emma, Bonnie's mother, Ted follows them. The Sheriff vows to track them down ("The Long Arm of the Law"), and they are finally killed in a shoot-out.
