Story Behind The Song

This song was written by my son-in-law and his friend. As a christmas gift one year I gave my son-in-law a day at the recording studio with his friend Erik and this was one of the songs they recorded. I need to say they are alternative style musicians so it was a challenge to put the song in the style I sing in. So guess what his christmas gift was this year? Yep! my finished song...a cd for both of them. I gave them their original plus my version..did they like it???????????

Me my girl and my girls gun,
we rob banks, live are life on the run.
Pushing too hard on the land of the free,
gon'a get back at them for messing with me.

Me, my girl her idea of fun,
We eat a lot of dust in the Texas sun
we ain't Robin Hood or maid Marion
bullets cost money grab as much as you can.


This is a hold up, lets get those hands in the air
This is a stick up, we need no heroes here

Instrument solo...


Me my girl and the way we were done
we robbed banks, live our life on the run
plans of mice and men all riddle with holes
wanna live this life, you don't get real old
Me my girl and my girls gun,
we rob, banks live our life on the run
pushing to hard on the land of the free,
gon'a get back at them for messing with me.


Me my girl, and my girls gun
Me my girl her idea of fun
Me my girl and the way we were done.

The instruments are well-done. I'd actually prefer this as an instrumental piece.

Nice feel in the intro

If you're looking for bank robber song, this is it! Bonnie and Clyde? I like the introduction - very pleasing sounds.

tune builds nicely every 8 bars going to Chorus

I like the guitar in this song

Firstly, the lyrics are excellent and I mean top notch. I like the insistent quality of the melody, which fit the lyrics perfectly. The song has a strong hook. Some nice percussive elements in the song. The song takes the listener right to the scene of the crime. It's a very engaging and memorable song, in fact the chorus is going round my mind as I type this.

It's a good song and a good arrangement
