John Wesley Harding
From 'John Wesley Harding' 1967. This song is the same name as his album. Intro: D D John Wesley Harding A Was a friend to the poor, D He trav'led with a gun in ev'ry hand. A All along this countryside, E He opened a many a door, A But he was never known D To hurt an honest man. intro D 'Twas down in Chaynee County, A A time they talk about, D With his lady by his side A He took a stand. And soon the situation there E Was all but straightened out, A For he was always known D To lend a helping hand. intro D All across the telegraph A His name it did resound, D But no charge held against him A Could they prove. And there was no man around E Who could track or chain him down, A He was never known D To make a foolish move. Finish off with solo.
