G
Jesse James we understand
    C             G
Has killed many a man
                    D
He robbed the Union trains
G              
He stole from the rich
    C           G
and gave to the poor
                  D
He'd a hand and a heart
      G 
and a brain

Well it was on Saturday night
The stars were shining bright
They robbed the Glendale train
And the people they did say
for many miles away
It was those outlays
Frank and Jesse James

C
Now Jesse had a wife
        G
Lived a lady all her life
                      D
And children they were brave
G    
But history does record
     C               G
That Bob and Charlie Ford
               D            G 
Have laid poor Jesse in his grave

Well it was Bob and Charlie Ford
Those dirty little cowards
I wonder how they feel
For they ate of Jesse's bread
and they slept in Jesse's bed
And they laid poor Jesse in his grave

Now Jesse had a wife
Lived a lady all her life
And children they were brave
But history does record
That Bob and Charlie Ford
Have laid poor Jesse in his grave

Bridge over:
G C G

G C G 
G D G

Now Jesse had a wife
Lived a lady all her life
And children they were brave
But history does record
That Bob and Charlie Ford
Have laid poor Jesse in his grave

Well the people held their breath
When they heard of Jesse's death
They wondered how he came to fall
Well it was Robert Ford in fact
who shot him in the back
While he hung a picture on the wall
		
Now Jesse had a wife
Lived a lady all her life
And children they were brave
But history does record
That Bob and Charlie Ford
Have laid poor Jesse in his grave

end of last chorus

G
Now history does record
     C               G
That Bob and Charlie Ford
               D
Have laid poor Jesse
G         C
Laid poor Jesse
G           D           G     C G
Laid Jesse James in his grave
