  • John Wesley Harding
    Was a friend to the poor
    He traveled with a gun in every hand
    All along this countryside
    He opened a many a door
    But he was never known
    To hurt an honest man

    It was down in Chaynee County
    A time they talk about
    With his lady by his side
    He took a stand
    And soon the situation there
    Was all but straightened out
    For he was always known
    To lend a helping hand

    All across the telegraph
    His name it did resound
    But no charge held against him
    Could they prove
    And there was no man around
    Who could track or chain him down
    He was never known
    To make a foolish moveWriter/s: BOB DYLAN
