Jesse James

Written by Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia

I come here most of the time To court the ladies and taste the wine Jesse James from Abilene Where do you think they're gonna lay me?

Down, Down Way down under the ground Down, Down Way down under the ground

Got one old hat and two old shoes Come here sweet mama, cos I got the blues I've thinking about all that I see One of these days they're gonna lay me...

Down, Down Way down under the ground Down, Down Way down under the ground

Now you sit down, cause i'm gonna sing And if you like my song, I'm buying the drinks I can see by your smile you're the salt of the land Keep your paws on the table while I deal your hand

Down, Down Way down under the ground Down, Down Way down under the ground

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust You look like a man that I can trust Robert Ford, you're my good friend I've got bread and a bed to lend

Down, Down Way down under the ground Down, Down Way down under the ground

You can call me Howard, but it ain't my name Everyone knows me as Jesse James And there ain't no man with the law in his hand Who can track me down in the whole of this land

Down, Down Way down under the ground Down, Down Way down under the ground
