THE STORY OF JESSE JAMES (Bob Davie / Irwin M. Schuster / Joe Csida) Jamie Coe SPOKEN: In Eighteen-Eighty-Two, Jesse James left his Gang And changed his name to Tom Howard (Tom Howard) This is the story of what happened after that..... SUNG: Jesse James was a lad who grew up pretty bad Yes, he robbed and he killed many men Till he found a sweet Wife and began a brand new life And he swore he'd never hold a gun again Yes, Jesse had a Wife to grieve for his life Three children trying hard to be brave But that dirty, little coward that shot Mister Howard He laid poor Jesse in his grave Jesse James turned at last from the evil of his past Settled down with a true love on a farm Raised his kids, raised his corn, went to church each Sunday morn And he never did another fellah harm Yes, Jesse had a Wife to grieve for his life Three children trying hard to be brave But that dirty, little coward that shot Mister Howard He laid poor Jesse in his grave Then one day at Jesse's door, there appeared a Robert Ford An old friend who knew the price on Jesse's head Now in courage Ford did lack, he shot Jesse in the back And Jesse James rolled over, cold and dead Yes, Jesse had a Wife to grieve for his life Three children trying hard to be brave But that dirty, little coward that shot Mister Howard He laid poor Jesse, laid poor Jesse, laid poor Jesse in his grave (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - April 2007) (Contributed by - April 2007)
