Clay Walker – Jesse James lyrics

Songwriters: Glover, Ben; Jacobs, Kyle; Leathers, Joe

I was raised knowin' right from wrong
Baptized under that ol' rugged cross
I try to be a good man, I always give it my best
But truth be told, some days, I wanna go
To the wild, wild west

I wanna line 'em up and drink 'em
I wanna love 'em and leave 'em
Sometimes, I just wanna rob a train
Be the first draw in that high noon sun
And feel the kick of my six gun
Yeah, I want "Wanted" above my name
Sometimes, I wanna be like Jesus
Sometimes, I wanna be Jesse James

I know where to draw the line
But there's somethin' 'bout that other side
I've got angels on my left, and demons on my right
It's a never endin' battle, it's a constant fight

I wanna line 'em up and drink 'em
I wanna love 'em and leave 'em
Sometimes, I just wanna rob a train
Be the first draw in that high noon sun
And feel the kick of my six gun
Yeah, I want "Wanted" above my name
Sometimes, I wanna be like Jesus
Sometimes, I wanna be Jesse James

I wanna steal a horse and ride into town
Stare the sheriff down
Tell him there's a new man around here
I wanna walk throught those swingin' saloon doors
And hear my spurs hit the wooden floor
I wanna smell nothin' but fear
Y'hear, law don't go 'round here

I wanna line 'em up and drink 'em
I wanna love 'em and leave 'em
Sometimes, I just wanna rob a train
Be the first draw in that high noon sun
And feel the kick of my six gun
Yeah, I want "Wanted" above my name
Sometimes, I wanna be like Jesus
Sometimes, I wanna be Jesse James

Y'hear that, law dog
Law don't go around here
