Ballad Of Jesse James

BALLAD OF JESSE JAMES 6:57 UBER26 / DDITV
BALLAD OF JESSE JAMES 5:31 CHAPTER

Note: Written in mid-1971. Sometimes referred to by the title “Don't You Want To Be An Outlaw” or “Billy”. This ode to Jesse James and Billy The Kid was played live often and there are multiple live performances from the second half of 1971 in circulation. The studio rehearsal take is in far better quality than any of the available live versions and officially released in September 2016 on Chapter And Verse, the companion album to Springsteen's autobiography Born To Run. This release has been edited, reducing the length to 5:31 by removing some of the verses in the middle of the song.
