  John Wesley Harding recording session 2, Nashville TN - 6.nov.1967, album version  

John Wesley Harding was a friend to the poor
He traveled with a gun in every hand
All along this countryside he opened many a door   /the/
But he was never known to hurt an honest man.

'Twas down in Chaynee county a time they talk about
With his lady by his side he took a stand
An' soon the situation there was all but straightened out   /than/
For he was always known to lend a helpin' hand.   /He was/

All across the telegraph his name it did resound
But no charge held against him could they prove   /But there's no charge/
An' there was no man around who could track or chain him down
He was never known to make a foolish move.
