The Ballad Of Jesse James

Capo on 3rd fret
	  		 
Am                         C 
I was just a boy when they tied me to that tree  
          G                            F 
They hung my daddy's brother, left him swinging over me 
       Am                               C 
I went off to get my vengeance underneath a flag of red 
         G                                 F 
And that angel on my shoulder, she ain't spoke to me since then 

Hey hey hey 

( Am  C  G  F ) 
( Am  C  G  F ) 

       Am                            C 
Well I tried my hand at working, but working was not me 
     G                                F 
So I left my wife and children in the state of Missouri 
        Am                          C 
I went off to make my living for my daughter and my son 
      G                          F 
And I found an occupation at the wrong end of a gun 

Refrão 

      Am                     C 
Lying here looking up at the cracks in the roof 
       G                                 E 
Well I thought you were my friend, but I guess I was a fool 
           F                        Am 
There's no pain, only blood and the smoke from your gun 
      G            E      Am 
And I ain't on the run anymore 

Ooohhh  

( Am  C  G  F ) 
( Am  C  G  F ) 
        
       Am                               C 
Well I joined a band of brothers, those brothers took my name 
        G                                 F 
We were feared across the country, as the gang of Jesse James 
     Am                             C 
Some folks call me a hero but those folks don't know me well 
           G 
There's no place for me in Heaven, there's no  
F 
Place for me in Hell 

      Am                     C 
Lying here looking up at the cracks in the roof 
       G                                 E 
Well I thought you were my friend, but I guess I was a fool 
           F                        Am 
There's no pain, only blood and the smoke from your gun 
      G            E      Am         G  
And I ain't on the run anymore, no I ain't on the  
E      Am  C  G  F 
Run anymore 

  Am                              C 
I thought you were my brother but now it's come to this 
          G                                  F 
You'll be off to get your silver, just like Judas with no kiss 
         Am                             C 
And that angel on my shoulder looked me deeply in the eye 
       G                                    F 
As she turned to face that doorway, I could hear that angel cry 

      Am                     C 
Lying here looking up at the cracks in the roof 
       G                                 E 
Well I thought you were my friend, but I guess I was a fool 
        F                      Am 
With my colt forty-four laying cold on the floor 
      G            E     Am          G 
And I ain't on the run anymore, no I ain't on the  
E      Am 
Run anymore
