Jesse James Blues

This song is by Washboard Sam and appears on the compilation album Washboard Sam Vol. 1 (1935-1936) (1993).

I wonder if you going to mistreat me woman, good as I have been to you
I wonder if you going to mistreat me woman, good as I have been to you
It seems like you don't want me, no matter what I do

Did you get that letter, that I throwed in your back yard
Did you get that letter, that I throwed in your back yard
Now I would come to see you, but your girl friend got me barred

Now woman you must want me, to be like Jesse James
Now woman you must want me, to be like Jesse James
I got to kill some man, and rob some passenger train

I feel just like, snapping my pistol in your no‑good face
I feel just like, snapping my pistol in your no‑good face
Because you told me late last night, you stayed in another place

I'm gonna shoot you woman, as long as my pistol will fire
I'm gonna shoot you woman, as long as my pistol will fire
Because this is Jesse James, and you should not tell him a lie
