Kevin Stokley – Jesse James lyrics

I was raised knowin' right from wrong
Baptised under that old rugged cross
I try to be a good man, I always give it my best
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 to draw in the high noon sun
Feel the kick of my six gun
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 just somethin' about that other side
I got angels on my left, demons on my right
It's a never ending 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 to draw in the high noon sun
Feel the kick of my six gun
I want wanted above my name
Sometimes I wanna be like Jesus
Sometimes I wanna be Jesse James

I wanna steal a horse, ride into to town
Stare that sheriff down
Tell him there's a new law around here
I wanna walk through those swingin' saloon doors
See my spurs hit the wooden floor
I wanna see nothin' but fear

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 to draw in the high noon sun
Feel the kick of my six gun
I want wanted above my name
Sometimes I wanna be like Jesus
Sometimes I wanna be Jesse James
