“Just like Jesse James” β€οΈπŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ’πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

This is a song I’ve found very recently. I never listened to Cher and only really knew her as a musical icon but never listened to her music, until I stumbled upon some albums on my playlist. I had a listen and this was on the songs and I instantly became a Cher fan.

There’s something about this song. The song itself doesn’t relate to me much lyrically but the power and the story behind it does loosely and this is what grabs me. I love the passion and the basic guitar melody throughout and the drums and solo part near the end of the song. I have replayed it so much and haven’t suffered my love for it. I just find myself instantly singing it and rocking my head to the beat (not metal hard rock style rocking by the way!) so this had to be one of my faves I would share!

Just Like Jesse James

You’re struttin’ into town like you’re slingin’ a gun
Just a small town dude with a big city attitude
Honey are ya lookin’ for some trouble tonight
Well all right

You think you’re so bad, drive the women folk wild
Shoot ’em all down with the flash of your pearly smile
Honey but you met your match tonight
Oh, that’s right

You think you’ll knock me off my feet ’til I’m flat on the floor
‘Til my heart is cryin’ Indian and I’m beggin for more
So come on baby
Come on baby show me what that loaded gun is for

If you can give it I can take it
‘Cause if this heart is gonna break it’s gonna take a lot to break it I know tonight
Somebody’s gonna win the fight
So if you’re so tough
Come on and prove it
You heart is down for the count and you know you’re gonna lose it
Tonight you’re gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James

You’re an outlaw lover and I’m after your hide
Well you ain’t so strong, won’t be long ’til your hands are tied
Tonight I’m gonna take you in dead or alive
That’s right

You break the laws of love in the name of desire
Take ten steps back cause I’m ready baby
Aim and fire
Baby there’s nowhere you gonna run tonight
Ooh that’s right

Well you’ve had your way with love but it’s the end of the day
Now a team of wild horses couldn’t drag your heart away
So come on baby
Come on baby
Come on baby you know there ain’t nothing left to say

If you can give it I can take it
‘Cause if this heart is gonna break it’s gonna take a lot to break it I know tonight
Somebody’s gonna win the fight
So if you’re so tough
Come on and prove it
You heart is down for the count and you know you’re gonna lose it
Tonight you’re gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James

You think you’ll knock me off my feet ’til I’m flat on the floor
‘Til my heart is cryin’ Indian and I’m beggin for more
So come on baby
Come on baby, come on

Tonight you’re gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James
Tonight you’re gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James

I’m gonna shoot you down Jesse James
