John Wesley Harding
Bob Dylan

John Wesley Harding was a friend to the poor
He traveled with a gun in ev’ry hand
All along the countryside, he opened a many a door
But he was never known to hurt a honest man

Twas down in Chaynee County, a time they talk about
With his lady 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 chain him down
He was never known to make a foolish move
