He killed many a man
And he roamed over the Scarsdale range
Robbin' from the rich
And givin' to the poor
He was dark and cold and full of rage
Oh yes he was, sing with me
Poor Jesse had a wife
To mourn for his life
And three children
They were oh so brave 
But that dirty little coward 
He went and shot Mr. Howard 
Laid poor Jesse in his grave yeah

It was on a Saturday night
When Jesse was at home
 Talking to old railroad Jed
 Along come Robert Ford
Like a thief in the night 
And he shot poor Jesse in the back

Poor Jesse had a wife
To mourn for his life
 Three children
They were oh so brave 
But that dirty little coward 
He went and shot Mr. Howard 
Laid poor Jesse in his grave yeah
He lays
Six feet under the ground
