Just Like Jesse James

The Very Best of Cher
pop 80s cher female vocalists rock


"Just Like Jesse James" is a pop rock song by American singer-actress Cher in her twentieth album Heart of Stone. It is the third North American and second European official single release on October 1989 by Geffen Records. The song was written by Desmond Child and Diane Warren. It is a December 1989 top ten hit. The song's title is a reference to Wild West bandit Jesse James. The song peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in December, 1989, becoming Cher's third top ten single from Heart of Stone in the US. It also peaked at #9 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart. The song was released in the UK in December 1989 and peaked at #11 on the UK Singles Chart in February 1990. Cher has stated during concert performances that she never cared much for the song, in part because there are so many lyrics in it that she has to sing, but she acknowledges that many of her fans cite the song as one of their favorites. For this reason she added the song to her Farewell Tour.[citation needed] Allmusic's Gary Hill noted that this song isn't like the rest songs on the album, and called it an "effective ballad." A montage video of Cher's earlier music videos and clips from western movies was produced to promote the song.


Cher (born Cherilyn Sarkisian; May 20, 1946) is an Oscar- and Grammy-winning American singer and actress. A major figure for over five decades in the world of popular culture, she is often referred to as the Goddess of Pop for having first brought the sense of female autonomy and self-actualization into the entertainment industry. She is known for her distinctive contralto and for having worked extensively across media, as well as for continuously reinventing both her music and image, the latter of which has been known to induce controversy.

Just Like Jesse James - Cher

You're struttin' into town like you're slingin' a gun
Just a small town dude with a big city attitude
Honey are ya lookin' for some trouble tonight
Well all right

You think you're so bad, drive the women folk wild
Shoot 'em all down with the flash of your pearly smile
Honey but you met your match tonight
Oh, that's right

You think you'll knock me off my feet 'til I'm flat on the floor
'Til my heart is cryin' Indian and I'm beggin for more
So come on baby
Come on baby show me what that loaded gun is for

[Chorus:]
If you can give it I can take it
'Cause if this heart is gonna break it's gonna take a lot to break it I know tonight
Somebody's gonna win the fight
So if you're so tough
Come on and prove it
You heart is down for the count and you know you're gonna lose it
Tonight you're gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James

You're an outlaw lover and I'm after your hide
Well you ain't so strong, won't be long 'til your hands are tied
Tonight I'm gonna take you in dead or alive
That's right

You break the laws of love in the name of desire
Take ten steps back cause I'm ready baby
Aim and fire
Baby there's nowhere you gonna run tonight
Ooh that's right

Well you've had your way with love but it's the end of the day
Now a team of wild horses couldn't drag your heart away
So come on baby
Come on baby
Come on baby you know there ain't nothing left to say

[Chorus instrumental]

You think you'll knock me off my feet 'til I'm flat on the floor
'Til my heart is cryin' Indian and I'm beggin for more
So come on baby
Come on baby, come on

[Chorus:]

Tonight you're gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James
Tonight you're gonna go down in flames
Just like Jesse James

I'm gonna shoot you down Jesse James
