In The Jailhouse Now

Song Author Jimmie Rodgers Performer: Webb Pierce Submitted by: Anonymous
[G7]He's in the jailhouse [C]now  
He's in the jailhouse [F]now  
I [G7]told him once or twice

To quit playin' cards and a shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse [C]now  


Well I had a friend named Rambling Bob

Who used to steal gamble and rob
He thought he was the [C7]smartest guy in [F]town

But I found out last Monday that Bob got locked up Sunday
They [D7]got him in the jailhouse way [G7]downtown

He's in the jailhouse [C]now  
He's in the jailhouse [F]now  
I [G7]told him once or twice

To quit playin' cards and a shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse [C]now  


Now I went out last Tuesday

I met a girl named Susie
I told her I was the [C7]swellest man [F]around

We started to spend my money

And she started to callin' me honey
We [D7]took in every honky tonk in [G7]town   

We're in the jailhouse [C]now  
We're in the jailhouse [F]now  
T[G7]hey told us once or twice

To quit playin' cards and a shootin' dice
We're in the jailhouse [C]now  

He's in the jailhouse now
He's in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice

To quit playin' cards and a shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

Well I had a friend named Rambling Bob

Who used to steal gamble and rob
He thought he was the smartest guy in town

But I found out last Monday that Bob got locked up Sunday
They got him in the jailhouse way downtown

He's in the jailhouse now
He's in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice

To quit playin' cards and a shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

Now I went out last Tuesday

I met a girl named Susie
I told her I was the swellest man around

We started to spend my money

And she started to callin' me honey
We took in every honky tonk in town

We're in the jailhouse now
We're in the jailhouse now
They told us once or twice

To quit playin' cards and a shootin' dice
We're in the jailhouse now
