Versione dei Sine Frontera
Jesse James was a lad
That killed many a man
He robbed the Glendale train
He stole from the rich
And he gave to the poor
He'd a hand and a heart and a brain

Well it was Robert Ford
That dirty little coward
I wonder now how he feels
For he ate of Jesse's bread
And he slept on Jesse's bed
And he laid poor Jesse in his grave

Well Jesse had a wife
To mourn for his life
Three children now
They were brave
Well that dirty little coward
That shot Mr. Howard
He laid poor Jesse in his grave

Well Jesse was a man
A friend to the poor
He'd never rob a mother or a child
There never was a man with
The law in his hand
That could take Jesse James when alive

Well Jesse had a wife
To mourn for his life
Three children now
They were brave
Well that dirty little coward
That shot Mr. Howard
He laid poor Jesse in his grave

It was on a Saturday night
When the moon was shining bright
They robbed the Glendale train
And people they did say
O'er many miles away
It was those outlaws Frank and Jesse James

Well Jesse had a wife
To mourn for his life
Three children now
They were brave
But that dirty little coward
That shot Mr. Howard
He laid poor Jesse in his grave

Now the people held their breath
When they heard of Jesse's death
They wondered how he'd ever
Come to fall
Robert Ford it's a fact
He shot Jesse in the back
While Jesse hung a picture on the wall

Jesse went to rest
With his head on his breast
The devil upon his knee
He was born one day
In the County Clay
And he came from a
Solitary race

Well Jesse had a wife
To mourn for his life
Three children now
They were brave
Well that dirty little coward
That shot Mr. Howard
He laid poor Jesse in his grave
JESSE IL BANDITO

Jesse è un fuorilegge
Un diavolo con la pistola
Una leggenda giù nel vecchio West
Assaltava banche ponti e diligenze
E scorribande sulla ferrovia
Rubava l’oro ai aiutava i poveri
Aveva mano cuore ed un cervello
Nessun sceriffo mai sarebbe riuscito
A prender vivo Jesse il bandito
Jesse aveva moglie e tre bambini coraggiosi
Che piansero per lui è stato Robert Ford
Appena dopo cena con un colpo alla schiena
Era sabato sera e la luna risplendeva
Derubò il treno per Glenville
La gente disse che erano stati loro
Jesse e la sua banda di Quantrill
Dal Texas al Missuri Wanted ricercato
Yankee e nordisti han beffato
Nessun sceriffo mai sarebbe riuscito
A prender vivo Jesse il bandito
Jesse aveva moglie e tre bambini coraggiosi
Che piansero per lui è stato Robert Ford
Appena dopo cena con un colpo alla schiena
La gente corse in strada e trattenne il respiro
Ma la notizia arrivò hanno ucciso Jesse
L’hanno tradito e alle spalle gli hanno sparato
Dissero che è stato uno della banda
A mettere Jesse nella tomba è stato Mr Ford
Quel piccolo codardo per qualche dollaro in più
Jesse aveva moglie e tre bambini coraggiosi
Che piansero per lui è stato Robert Ford
Appena dopo cena con un colpo alla schiena
