OPENER - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
It was on a moonlit night, the stars were shining bright
They robbed the Glendale train
And the people they did say for many miles away
'Twas the outlaws of Frank and Jesse James

Four ladies promenade you go once inside the ring
Get back home, swing and promenade
And the agent on his knees delivered up the keys
To the outlaws of Frank and Jesse James


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands around and go
Around the corner lady dosado
Touch 1/4 please, walk & dodge for me
Partner trade and do the right & left thru
Pass the ocean, recycle full around you go
Swing this girl and then you promenade
The people they did say for many miles away
'Twas the outlaws of Frank and Jesse James


MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Four ladies promenade go once inside the land
Get back home, swing this handsome man
Join hands, circle to the left around I sing
Left allemande, weave the ring
He and his brother Frank, they robbed the Danville bank
Dosado and promenade
And the agent on his knees delivered up the keys
To the outlaws of Frank and Jesse James

Jesse James (The Ballad of Jesse James)  (1882)

Jesse James was a lad that killed many a man
He robbed the Danville train
He stole from the rich and he gave to the poor
He'd a hand, and a heart, and a brain

Jesse was a man, a friend to the poor
He couldn't see a brother suffer pain
And with his brother Frank he robbed the Springfield bank
And he stopped the Glendale train

Poor Jesse had a wife, a lady all her life
And three children, they were so brave
But that dirty little coward that shot Mr. Howard
Has laid ol' Jesse James in his grave

It was Robert Ford, the dirty little coward
And I wonder how he feels
For he slept in Jesse's bed and he ate o' Jesse's bread
But he laid Jesse James in his grave

It was with his brother Frank that he robbed the Gallatin Bank
An' carried the money from the town
It was at that very place that they had a little chase
For they shot ol' Captain Sheets to the ground

Poor Jesse had a wife to mourn for his life
And three children, they were so brave
But that dirty little coward that shot Mr. Howard
Has laid ol' Jesse James in his grave

They went to a crossing, not very far from there
And there they did the same
For the agent on his knees delivered up the keys
To the outlaws, Frank an' Jesse James

It was on a Wednesday night, not a star was in sight
When they robbed the Glendale train
Those people, they did say for many miles away
It was robbed by Frank an' Jesse James

Poor Jesse had a wife to mourn for his life
And three children, they were so brave
But that dirty little coward that shot Mr. Howard
Has laid ol' Jesse James in his grave

Then on a Saturday night, Jesse was at home
Just talking with his family brave
When Robert Ford came along like a thief in the night
And laid poor Jesse in his grave

Now, the people held their breath when they heard of Jesse's death
They wondered how he came to die
It was one of his own gang called little Robert Ford
An' he shot Jesse James on the sly

Poor Jesse had a wife who mourned for his life
And three children, they were so brave
But that dirty little coward that shot Mr. Howard
Has laid ol' Jesse James in his grave

Jesse went to his rest with his hand upon his breast
And there are many who never saw his face
He was born one day in the County of Clay
And he came from a solitary race

This song was made by Billy Gashade
As soon as the news did arrive
He said there's no one man with the law in his hand
Could ever take ol' Jesse James alive

Poor Jesse had a wife to mourn his life
An' his children too, they were brave
But that dirty little coward shot Mr. Howard
An' laid Jesse James in his grave

Oh, they laid poor Jesse in his grave, yes, Lord
They laid Jesse James in his grave
Oh, he took from the rich and he gave to the poor
But, they laid Jesse James in his grave

Lyrics by Billy Gashade.
Recorded by Woody Guthrie; Pete Seeger; Eddy Arnold; many others.
