THE NIGHT I SHOT JESSE LEE song lyrics
by Joel Sattler

On the run to old Mexico
running from a crime I didn't know
hungry as a wolf, so cold I couldn't see
the night that I shot Jesse Lee

The moon was full, as round as it could be
the night I shot Jesse Lee
I didn't know that that would be the end of me
the night I shot Jesse Lee

He was an outlaw too
we sat by the fire only just us two
didn't know that I would make history
the night I shot Jesse Lee

Jesse Lee did crime, Jesse Lee did time
until he escaped the prison up in Tucson town
I thought I didn't care what the man had done
until I found my gun in my hand

The moon was full, as round as it could be
the night I shot Jesse Lee
I didn't know that that would be the end of me
the night I shot Jesse Lee

He told a story of a pretty young girl
who lived up on Mount Emory
he took her honor and then he took her life
he didn't know she was kin to me

Now I'm running from both the law and his men
and there is no place I can hide
between the two of them I don't stand a chance
no matter how big the West is wide

The moon was full, as round as it could be
the night I shot Jesse Lee
I didn't know that that would be the end of me
the night I shot Jesse Lee
