Collected by Jim Bob Wheeler For M.C. Parler
Transcribed by Linda Humphrey
Well, living in Missouri was a bold bad man,
He was known from Seattle down to Birmingham,
From Denver, Colorado to the Golden Gate,
From Boston, Massachusettes down to New York State.
Jesse James, used to read about him,
Jesse James, in the papers all the night,
Jesse James, I used to read about him,
When the wind was down the chimney, they would shake with fright
Sung by Houston Scott Bentonville, Ark.
June 12, 1960 Reel 373 Item 5
