Jesse James Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Jesse James was a lad who killed many a manA
He robbed the Glendale trainB
He stole from the rich and he gave to the poorC
He d a hand and a heart and a brainB
Jesse had a wife to mourn for his lifeD
Three children they were braveE
But that dirty little coward that shot Mister HowardF
Has laid Jesse James in his graveE
It was Robert Ford that dirty little cowardF
I wonder how he does feelG
For he ate of Jesse s bread and he slept in Jesse s bedH
Then he laid Jesse James in his graveE
Jesse was a man a friend to the poorC
He d never see a man suffer painB
And with his brother Frank he robbed the Chicago bankI
And stopped the Glendale trainB
It was on a Wednesday night the moon was shining brightJ
He stopped the Glendale trainB
And the people all did say for many miles awayK
It was robbed by Frank and Jesse JamesL
It was on a Saturday night Jesse was at homeM
Talking to his family braveE
Robert Ford came along like a thief in the nightJ
And laid Jesse James in his graveE
The people held their breath when they heard of Jesse s deathN
And wondered how he ever came to dieO
It was one of the gang called little Robert FordP
That shot Jesse James on the slyO
Jesse went to his rest with his hand on his breastQ
The devil will be upon his kneeR
He was born one day in the county of ClayK
And he came from a solitary raceS
This song was made by Billy GashadeQ
As soon as the news did arriveT
He said there was no man with the law in his handQ
Could take Jesse James when aliveT
