Jesse james is running and he'll never be at rest

'til the day they fold his arms across his chest

He's a long way from the cradle

And his ma's authority

But it only seems a minute

Since he stood over his bed

And she tried to tell him something

Now what the hell was it she said ? ? ?

Jesse james is thinking of the breaks he never had

And the gene that cursed his blood group rhesus-bad

Jesse james lived money

His account was in the black

'til the day he stopped a bullet with his back

Well the zip cose may read vegas

But the heart beats tupelo

And a footstep is such a small thing

That it's neither here nor there

'til you string those steps together

And find home is way back, way back where ?

Jesse james was never

Part of lifes great symphony

All he heard were penny whistles out of key

Jesse james he promised :

"i will never die afraid"

That boy perjured every vow he ever made
