An Old Folk Song About That Coward Robert Ford

From The Long Riders, a traditional folk song about Jesse James. Outlaw songs tend to romanticize the hero, but Robert Ford deserves his infamy.

My sister used to sing that song when I was a kid--long before "The Long Riders" was made in 1980! I remember the line "that dirty little coward that shot Mr. Howard, and laid poor Jessie in his grave."
