Jesse came from Arkansas
Had a house and sold it off
Been a husband for too long
Never been a lover, though

So he headed up to Edmonton
He changed his name and found some friends
Got a couple shekels from a brother who supported him

Didn't take a couple months
Till Jesse finally met someone
A simple girl from Edmonton
Thought that they could be something

So he brought her back to Little Rock
And showed her off to everyone
Found a house and found a job
Got a ring to get it done

Restless eyes they never sleep for too long they're always a couple steps ahead

Jesse disappeared again
Didn't go to Edmonton
Didn't talk to any friends
Like many others who are
Trying to be someone else
Instead of who they really are

Jesse came from Arkansas
Had a house and sold it off
Been a husband for too long
Never been a lucky one
