DON'T YOU WANT TO BE AN OUTLAW?

Don't you wanna climb a mountain
Don't you wanna ride the river
Drink from a magic fountain
Give a woman all the love that you can give her

Well don't you wanna be an outlaw
Don't you wanna ride the range
Don't you wanna be an outlaw children
Just like Jesse, like Jesse James
Just like Jesse boy

Don't you wanna swim the ocean
Don't you wanna climb the highest tree
Pick some of Mama's loving potion*
Touch your woman 'till she just cant see*

Don't you wanna be an outlaw
Just a poor boy caught on the skids
Don't you wanna be an outlaw children
Just like Billy, just like Billy the Kid

Billy he was a bad boy
He won the wild west
By the year of 21, had many notches on the gun
Someone laid him to an early grave

Don't you wanna climb a mountain
Don't you wanna ride the river
Drink from a magic fountain
Give your woman all the love that you can give her

Don't you wanna be an outlaw
Don't you wanna ride the range
Don't you wanna be an outlaw children
Just like Jesse

Jesse he was a bad boy
He won the wild west
And many notches on the gun, by the year of 21
Someone laid him to an early rest

Don't you wanna climb a mountain
Don't you wanna ride the river
Drink from a magic fountain
Give your woman all the love that you can give her

Don't you wanna be an outlaw
Don't you wanna ride the range
Don't you wanna be an outlaw children
Just like Jesse
Don't you wanna be an outlaw
Don't you wanna be an outlaw
Just like Jesse, just like Jesse, just like Jesse
