[Intro :]
G  C  G

( spoken )
G
Frank and Jesse James were products of their environment
                  D                                                    G
They were sent out into the woods by their parents to forage for berries
                        C                  G
Truffles, rutabagas and roots of all sorts
                            D                    G
Put yourself in their place, you'd a been mean too

[Verse :]
                              C
When Jesse James was a lad he killed many a man
  G                  D
He robbed the Glendale train
        G                      C
And the people they did say for many miles away
      G        D              G
It was robbed by Frank and Jesse James

[Chorus :]
    C                    G
Poor Jesse had a wife who mourned for his life
                          D
Three children, they were brave
        G                      C
But that dirty little coward who shot Mister Howard
    G        D            G
Has laid poor Jesse in his grave

[Verse :]
                              C
It was on a Saturday night, if I remember right
          G                    D
When they robbed that Glendale train
      G                          C
It was one of the Younger boys who gathered in the spoils
      G              D      G
And he carried Jesse's monies away

[Chorus :]
    C                    G
Poor Jesse had a wife who mourned for his life
                          D
Three children, they were brave
        G                      C
But that dirty little coward who shot Mister Howard
    G        D            G
Has laid poor Jesse in his grave

[Verse :]
                                  C                      G
He was standin' on a chair just a-dustin' pictures there
                      D
He thought he heard a noise
        G                                C
When he turned his head around, why that bullet smacked him down
      G        D            G
And it laid poor Jesse on the floor

[Chorus :]
    C                    G
Poor Jesse had a wife who mourned for his life
                          D
Three children, they were brave
        G                      C
But that dirty little coward who shot Mister Howard
    G        D            G
Has laid poor Jesse in his grave

[Instrumental :]
G  C  G  D  G  C  G D G

[Verse :]
                                  C
Jesse robbed from the poor and he gave to the rich
  G                    D
He never did a friendly thing
    G                                C
And when his best friend died, he was right there by her side
      G              D              G
And he lifted off her golden wedding ring

[Chorus :]
    C                    G
Poor Jesse had a wife who mourned for his life
                          D
Three children, they were brave
        G                      C
But that dirty little coward who shot Mister Howard
    G        D            G
Has laid poor Jesse in his grave
