Ride Jesse Ride

Dust clouds rising on the plains
Looks like Jesse caught a train
Saddle up your horses, round up the posse
We?ve got to ride tonight
Strap on your six gun, I hope you?re ready
It?s all going down, down, down, tonight

They say he went down yonder way
Got a jump bout? half a day
Slope?s getting steeper, dig them spurs deeper
We?ve got to ride tonight
He?s going higher, keep going faster
He ain?t gonna slide; ain?t gonna slide tonight!

And it?s ride Jesse ride
Till there ain?t no place for you to hide

Law man finally had his way
Laid ol? Jesse in his grave
When the wind blows through them hills
You can hear him riding still!
