On a small Missouri farm 
Back when the west was young
Two boys learned to rope and ride 
And be handy with a gun
War broke out between the states
And they joined up with Quantrill
And it was over in Clay county 
That Frank and Jesse finally learned to kill
Keep on riding, riding, riding 
Frank and Jesse James 
Keep on riding, riding, riding 
'Til you clear your names 
Keep on riding, riding, riding
Across the rivers and the range 
Keep on riding, riding, riding Frank and Jesse James
After Appomattox they were on the loosing side
So no amnesty was granted
And as outlaws they did ride 
They rode against the railroads, 
And they rode against the banks 
And they rode against the governor 
Never did they ask for a word of thanks
Keep on riding, riding, riding 
Frank and Jesse James 
Keep on riding, riding, riding 
'Til you clear your names 
Keep on riding, riding, riding 
Across the prairies and the plains 
Keep on riding, riding, riding 
Frank and Jesse James
Robert Ford, a gunman 
Did exchange for his parole 
Took the life of James the outlaw 
Which he snuck up on and stole 
No one knows just where they came to be misunderstood 
But the poor Missouri farmers knew 
Frank and Jesse do the best they could
Keep on riding, riding, riding 
Frank and Jesse James 
Keep on riding, riding, riding 
'Til you clear your names 
Keep on riding, riding, riding 
Across the rivers and the range
Keep on riding, riding, riding 
Frank and Jesse James
