When he was runnin' from the cops, he said,
"Baby, I'm just nineteen.
I'm as sexy as a ballerina in a magazine.
Give me danger and a gun,
You know I ain't afraid of pain.
I don't wanna live your life,
I wanna die like Jesse James."

I wanna die like Jesse James. (x4)

"I grew up in a little trailer on the edge of town.
My daddy used to beat me raw, he used to beat me down.
And one thing that I learned when I was barely seventeen
Was how to kill a full-grown man when he was fast asleep.
'Cause I wanna die like Jesse James."

I wanna die like Jesse James. (x3)

"So, now I'm runnin' from the cops.
Baby, I'm just nineteen.
I'm as sexy as a ballerina on a T.V. screen.
And I'm happy as a newborn baby when he sees his mom.
And I'm grateful to the bullet
That's just about to take me home.
'Cause I wanna die like Jesse James."

I wanna die like Jesse James. (x3)
