Jesse James

	  		
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
