How To Play

VERSE 1
 
B     A/E      G#m/D#
Jesse James is running
          C#m7        A5
And he'll never be at rest
G#5      F#m7              G#m/F#
'Til the day they fold his arms
G#/Eb      C#m    D    E
Across his chest
 
 
[Pre-chorus 1]
 
E    D  Amaj7
He's a  long way from the cradle
        (E)               C#m7    F#m9
And his Ma's authority -- ooh ooh ooh
 
 
BRIDGE 1
 
N.C.                           E  F#
But it only seems a minute
N.C.                           E  F#
Since she stood over his bed
N.C.                                 E  F#
And she tried to tell him something
N.C.
Now what the hell was it she said?
 
 
VERSE 2
 
B     A/E      G#m/D#
Jesse James is thinking
       C#m7            A5
Of the breaks he never had
G#5     F#m7                 G#m/F#
And the gene that cursed his blood group
G#/Eb  C#m   D   E
Rhesus bad
 
B     A/E         G#m/D#
Jesse James lived money
      C#m7             A5
His account was in the black
G#5      F#m7             G#m/F#
'Til the day he stopped a bullet
G#/Eb    C#m   D   E
With his back
 
 
PRE CHORUS 2
 
E    D   Amaj7
Well the zip code may read Vegas
        E                     C#m7    F#m9
But the heart beats Tupelo -- ooh ooh ooh
 
 
BRIDGE 2
 
N.C.                                    E  F#
And a footstep is such a small thing
N.C.                                    E  F#
That it's neither here nor there
N.C.                                    E  F#
'Til you string those steps together
N.C.
And find home is way back, way back where?
 
 
VERSE 3
 
B     A/E       G#m/D#
Jesse James was never
        C#m7               A5
Part of life's great symphony
G#5    F#m7             G#m/F#
All he heard were penny whistles
G#/Eb  C#m   D   E
Out of key
 
B     A/E       G#m/D#
Jesse James, he promised:
        C#m7       A5
"I will never die afraid"
G#5      F#m7           G#m/F#
That boy perjured every vow
   G#/Eb  C#m   D   E
He ever   made
 
 
JESSE JAMES BOLERO
 
INTRO
 
C#5/G#  E6  E/G#  B/F#
 
 
VERSE 1
 
C#5/G#
Jesse was a renegade
E6
Danced to his own drum
E/G#
Growin' wise could wait till tomorrow
B/F#
Took to a road signposted sorrow
 
C#5/G#
Jesse was a hooligan
E6
Jumped right off the rail
E/G#
There in the card, there in the tarot
B/F#
Born to despise the straight and the narrow
 
 
PRE CHORUS 1
 
C#5/G#
Jesse was a connoisseur
G#7b5
Home cooking tasted stale
 
 
CHORUS
 
B   B6 Amaj7   B6
Jes-se James Bolero
     C#m7           Amaj7
Is a dance upon the run
Amaj7/G#  F#m9
Every     step proclaims
     G#7    G#7/C   C#m  D  E
That he's a wayward son
 
B   B6 Amaj7    B6
Jes-se James is waiting
        C#m7           Amaj7
For the cheap music to stop
Amaj7/G#     F#m9
Don't    goodbye deserve
     G#7      G#7/C C#m  D  E
Some Bach not barbershop?
 
 
VERSE 2
 
C#5/G#
Jesse didn't hear the drum
F#sus2
Suddenly lose time
E/G#
All his plans crafted, clever
B/F#
Fated unborn, unfinished forever
 
C#5/G#
Jesse didn't hear the drum
F#sus2
Stop outside his door
E/G#
In his dreams destiny towered
B/F#
In the cold light of day, it came as a coward
 
 
PRE CHORUS 2
 
C#5/G#
Jesse didn't hear the drum
G#7b5
At the age of thirty four
 
 
CHORUS (x2)
 
B   B6 Amaj7   B6
Jes-se James Bolero
     C#m7           Amaj7
Is a dance upon the run

Every     step proclaims
     G#7    G#7/C   C#m  D  E
That he's a wayward son
 
B   B6 Amaj7    B6
Jes-se James is waiting
        C#m7           Amaj7
For the cheap music to stop

Don't    goodbye deserve
     G#7      G#7/C C#m  D  E
Some Bach not barbershop?
