John Wesley Harding

Bob Dylan

John Wesley Harding was a friend to the poor
He travelled with a gun in every hand     
 All across this countryside he opened 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 woman 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 trail him down
For he was never known to make a foolish move
