"Just Like Jesse James" as written by Desmond Child and Diane Warren....
You're strutting into town like you're slinging a gun
Just a small-town dude with a big city attitude
Honey are you looking for some trouble tonight?
Well, alright

You think you're so bad drive the women folk wild
Shoot 'em all down with a flash of your pearly smile
Honey, but you met your match tonight
Oh, that's right

You think you'll knock me off my feet 'til I'm flat on the floor
'Til my heart is crying Indian and I'm begging for more
So come on baby
Come on baby
Come on baby show me what that loaded gun is for

If you can give it
I can take it
Cause if this heart is gonna break, its gonna take a lot to break it
I know tonight somebody is gonna win the fight

So if you're so tough
Come on and prove it
Your heart is down for the count and you know you're gonna lose it
Tonight you're gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James

You break the laws of love in the name of desire
Take ten steps back
Cause I'm ready baby
Aim and fire
Baby, there's nowhere you're gonna run tonight
Oh, that's right

Well, you've had your way with love, but its the end of the day
Now a team of wild horses couldn't drag your heart away

So come on baby
Come on baby
Come on baby
Come on

If you can give it
I can take it
Cause if this heart is gonna break, it's gonna take a lot to break it
I know tonight somebody's gonna win the fight

So if you're so tough
Come on and prove it
Your heart is down for the count, and you know you're gonna lose it
Tonight you're gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James
Tonight you're gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James
