There are traditional ballads about Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Sam Bass, Jim Fisk (robber baron), John Hardy, William Quantrill, Stagolee (whether he was real or not is debateable) and Cole Younger. I found all but Jim Fisk and Quantrill in the DT, I can send those to you if you like. Michael Martin Murphey, the country singer, has a terrific recording of both trad. and contemp. outlaw songs called "Rhymes of the Renegades."

There are several ballads about the English folk hero Dick Turpin also.

These are the ones that spring to mind...if I think of any more, I'll add on later.

You should check out the two volume CD set from Yazoo: My Rough and Rowdy Ways, which has Wild Bill Jones, John Hardy, The Fate of Talmedge Osborn, Dupree Blues, Stack-O-Lee, Jesse James, Little Sadie, Bad Man Napper, Otto Wood the Bandit, Louisville Burglar, and many more.

To which one might add "Railroad Bill," "Harvey Logan," and Frank Proffitt's delightful "Moonshine" (available now as a custom cassette from Folk-Legacy, but soon to be released on CD -- at last!).

For whiskey running songs, check out "Midnight Run" by Chris Shaw. Great story.

Ian Tyson's Cowboyography series has several bad-man ballads in it, by favorite being Claude Dallas. Also Hank Williams Jr. did a great tune called Two Dot, Montana. Can't remember what album it was on —sorry.
