  • Need help with a possibly 90s country song

    I'm hoping y'all can help me find a song that has been on my mind that I can't think of.

    OK now the song is kinda a Bonnie & Clyde type of song but its NOT Travis Tritt's Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde or Merle Haggard's The Legend of Bonnie and Clyde.

    Both are great songs but not what I'm looking for. The song is about a Bonnie & Clyde time of couple.

    In the song the man leaves the woman behind when the law is closing in. I think at one point in the song it talks about the woman seeing in a newspaper that the man got caught or killed.

    It might be Reba McEntire's version of The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia, originally recorded recorded by Vicki Lawrence in the 1970s.

      The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia by Reba McEntire is a great song. Thank you for the reply sadly its not the song I have been thinking about. I believe its more of a new song. Seems like the music video is simular to Bottoms Up by Brantley Gilbert but older then Bottoms Up I believe.

      I think in the song I'm thinking of the woman works in a dinner or something and falls in love with the man and they go on a crime spree. Then as the law is closing in the man tells the woman to go back home and tell everyone she was forced into it. Then later in the song I think the woman is in a supermarket or something and in the checkout line she reads the man had been caught or killed.

        You are welcome, it sounded like Lights Went Out In Georgia fitted the bill, especially the video.

        Sometimes I have help my wife remember films we watched a while ago from her memories.

          The Road goes on forever by The Highwayman sort of fits the description
