Played by Jerry Garcia, Marshall Leicester and Robert Hunter at the Carlos Bookstall in San Carlos in July 1961.
One of a 'family' of Jesse James songs.
The lyrics from the San Carlos tape are as follows;
Went down to the station not many days ago
I did something I'll never do again
I got down on my knees and delivered up the keys
To Frank and his brother Jesse James
Jesse had a wife, she's a [mourner all her life]
Three children, they were brave
But that dirty little coward that shot Mr. Howard
[And] laid poor Jesse in his grave
Oh, Jesse was a man that befriended of the poor
He would never see a man suffer pain
But [with his brother] Frank he robbed the [Glendale Train]
And stopped the Glendale train
Well the people in the west when they heard of Jesse's death
They wondered how it was he came to die
It was Ford's pistol ball that [???] wall
And he laid poor Jesse down to die
Now old Jesse's gone to rest with his head upon his chest
And the devil [???]
He was born one day in the country of Clay
And he came from a solitary race
Now this song it was made by old Billy Gashade
As soon as the news did arrive
Said there was no man with the law in his hand
That could take Jesse James when alive
