Jesse James
The Rum Fellows Lyrics


Jesse James we understand
had killed a many a man
He robed the Union train
Well he stole from the rich
what he gave to the poor
had a hand, a haert and a brain

It was on a saturday night
and the moon was shining bright
He robed the Glendale train
And the people all would say
from many miles away
It was those outlaws
they're Frank and Jesse James

Well Jesse had a wife
lived a lady all her live
Three children, they were brave,
But history does record that
Bob and Charly Ford
Lay Jesse James in his grave

It was Bob and Charly Ford
Those dirty little cowerds
I wounder how they feel
For they ate of Jesse's bread
And they slept in Jesse's bed
They lay Jesse James in his grave

Now Jesse had a wife
lived a lady all her live
Three children, they were brave,
But history does record that
Bob and Charly Ford
Lay Jesse James in his grave

Now Jesse had a wife
lived a lady all her live
Three children, they were brave,
But history does record that
Bob and Charly Ford
Lay Jesse James in his grave

Well the people held their breath
when they heard of Jesse's death,
They wondered how he ever came to fall
it was Robert Ford in fact
Who shot Jesse in the back
As he hung a picture on the wall

Now Jesse had a wife
lived a lady all her live
Three children, they were brave,
But history does record that
Bob and Charly Ford
Lay Jesse James in his grave

Now Jesse had a wife
lived a lady all her live
Three children, they were brave,
But history does record that
Bob and Charly Ford
Lay Jesse James in his grave
