This song is a Bonnie-and-Clyde story about a young couple who kill a man in a robbery and go on the run. A 1976 hit for Steve Miller, although the song gives vague details of the couples pending arrest, you get the impression that the protagonists slip away and are still on the loose.
Miller wrote this as a road trip song. When he was a kid, his parents took him on long road trips where they listened to radio stations the whole time and sung along to their favorite songs. Miller made sure his road anthem was upbeat and fun, just like the ones that caught his ear as a kid.
