Hey, I tabbed this song because there are currently no other tabs for it. I didnt
bother to tab the piano intro or the other piano solos, just the verse and the chorus.
The chords are pretty simple so here it is.  

Warren Zevon
Frank and Jesse James

First Verse:
Dm             F
On a small Missouri farm
     C                 F
Back when the West was young
Dm                  C
Two boys learned to rope and ride
       A#           F
And be handy with a gun
Dm               F
War broke out between the states
         C                  F
And they joined up with Cantrell
           Dm           C
And it was over in Clay County
     A#              C                  F
That Frank and Jesse finally learned to kill

        Dm      C       F
Keep on riding, riding, riding
A#              F
Frank and Jesse James
        Dm      C       F
Keep on riding, riding, riding
  A#                 F
Until you clear your names
        Dm      C       F
Keep on riding, riding, riding
           A#             F
Across the rivers and the plains
        Dm      C       F
Keep on riding, riding, riding
A#               Dm
Frank and… Jesse James

Second Verse:
Dm        F
After Appomadox, 
         C             F
they was on the losing side
      Dm          C
so no amnesty was granted
       A#               F
and as outlaws they did ride
     Dm               F
they rode against the railroads
         C                F
and they rode against the banks 
         Dm               C
and they rode against the governor
A#             C                 F
never did they ask for a word of thanks


Third Verse:  
Dm             F
Robert Ford, a gunman,
     C                F
In exchange for his parol
         Dm                C
Took the life of James the outlaw
         A#              F
Which he snuck up on and stole
Dm               F
No one know just where they came
   C          F
To be misunderstood
        Dm            C
But the poor Missouri farmers know
     A#              C                F
That Frank and Jesse do the best they could
