Verse 1

E Riding North on Interstate 75 With a nervous fading beauty sitting by his side A And a pistol that he usEed to pave the way B7 Down the long black stretches of a dark highway

Verse 2

E Ray bought his future with a pound of lead When he robbed a liquor store and left the clerk for dead A That kid should have put theE money in the sack B7 But he didn't and now there ain't no turning back

Chorus 1

A He's a desperateE rider, he's a Jesse James A The best that he could hopeE for is a household name A There ain't noEbody that a man can trust B7 When all his heaEdlines read, notorious A There ain't noEbody that a man can trust B7 When all his heaEdlines read, notorious

Verse 3

E They pulled out of ? about12 o'clock Took the heatstroke with the lights off to avoid the road block A Ray killed the motor at tEhe county line B7 Changed his Tennessee plates to a lost tag sign

Verse 4

E She would never ask what the boy had done But said she'd be his hostage if he needed one A Her momma raised her tEo be loyal and true B7 And she figured that's the least that she could do

Chorus 2

A She was lost Eand lonely on a midnight ride A Reluctant BonniEe to a poorman's Clyde A It ain't too easy Ewhen the man you love B7 Has got a reputatEion that's notorious A It ain't too easy Ewhen the man you love B7 Has got a reputatEion that's notorious

Verse 5

E They were just outside of Knoxville when the lights flashed on And the siren's starting howling like hell houndogs A Ray popped that FirebirEd into overdrive B7 And swore he'd never let them take him alive

Chorus 3

A He was a desperaEte rider, he was Jesse James A The best that he'd ever hope Efor was a household name A The morning papEers didn't say too much B7 But his obitEuairy read, notorious A The caption by his pictuEre didn't say too much B7 But his obitEuairy read, notorious A The caption by his pictuEre didn't say too much B7 But his obitEuairy read, notorious Written by Steve Clark,Johnny Mac Rae performed by Confederate Railroad.
