Just Like Jesse James

Album: Crawling Kingsnake (1997)
  • songfacts ®
  • Artistfacts ®
  • Short and punchy, "Just Like Jesse James" was recorded July 29, 1967 in Chicago with Edwards on guitar and vocal, and is a typical acoustic blues track such as he wrote and performed throughout his long career. It has little to do with the real Jesse James and nothing at all to do with the song recorded by Cher 22 years later. Initially, it was unissued, but was put out in 1997. >>
