J’ignorais que Ry Cooder avait contribué à illustrer en musique la légende de Jesse James. C’était pour le film the Long Riders de Walter Hill, vu à l’instant dans une kinoteka attentive.

(Traditionnel - arrangement Ry Cooder)
Jesse James we understand has killed him many a man. He robbed the Union trains. But history does record that Bob and Charlie Ford have laid Jesse James in his grave.
It was on a Saturday night, the stars were shining bright when they robbed that Union train. And it was one of the Younger boys that gathered in the spoils and carried that money away.
In his small home unaware a-straightening pictures there, he thought he heard a noise. And as he turned his head well, the bullet killed him dead fired by Bob Ford, one of the boys
Poor Jesse had a wife, she lived a lady all her life. The children they were brave. But history does record that Bob and Charlie Ford have laid poor Jesse, laid poor Jesse have laid Jesse James in his grave.
