Jesse James Symphony Lyrics

Artist: Prefab Sprout
Album: Jordan: The Comeback

Jesse James is running and he'll never be at rest

'Til the day they fold his arms across his chest

He's a long way from the cradle

And his Ma's authority

But it only seems a minute

Since he stood over his bed

And she tried to tell him something

Now what the hell was it she said ???

Jesse James is thinking of the breaks he never had

And the gene that cursed his blood group rhesus-bad

Jesse James lived money

His account was in the black

'Til the day he stopped a bullet with his back

Well the zip cose may read Vegas

But the heart beats Tupelo

And a footstep is such a small thing

That it's neither here nor there

'Til you string those steps together

And find home is way back, way back where ?

Jesse James was never

Part of lifes great symphony

All he heard were penny whistles out of key

Jesse James he promised :

"I will never die afraid"

That boy perjured every vow he ever made
