Jailhouse Rock

Song Author Jerry Leiber Lyrics by: Mike Stoller Performer: Elvis Presley Submitted by: Anonymous
[Ab]    [A]    [Ab]    [A]    
[Ab]The    [A]warden threw a party at the county jail
[Ab]The    [A]prison band was there and they began to wail
[Ab]the    [A]band was jumpin and the joint began to swing
[Ab]You    [A]should’ve hear those knocked out jailbirds sing

Let’s [D]rock, let’s [A]rock
Every[E]body in the whole cell [D]block
was [A]dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

[Ab]Spid   [A]er Murphy played the tenor saxophone
[Ab]Litt   [A]le Joe was blowin’ on the slide trombone
[Ab]The    [A]drummer boy from Illinois went crash boom bang
[Ab]The    [A]whole rythm section was the Purple gang

Let’s [D]rock, let’s [A]rock
Every[E]body in the whole cell [D]block
was [A]dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

[Ab]Num   [A]ber forty seven said to number three
[Ab]You’re [A]the cutest jailbird I everd did see
[Ab]I    [A]sure would be delighted with your company
[Ab]Come [A]and do the jailhouse rock with me

Let’s [D]rock, let’s [A]rock
Every[E]body in the whole cell [D]block
was [A]dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

[Ab]The    [A]sad Sack was sittin’ on a block of Stone
[Ab]Way    [A]over in the corner weepin’ all alone
[Ab]The    [A]warden said „Hey buddy don’t you be no square“
[Ab]If    [A]you can’t find a partner use a wooden chair

Let’s [D]rock, let’s [A]rock
Every[E]body in the whole cell [D]block
was [A]dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

[Ab]Shif   [A]ty Henry said to Bugs „For heaven’s sakes“
[Ab]„No    [A]one’s lookin’ now’s our chance to break“
[Ab]Bug   [A]sy turned to Shifty and he said „Nix nix“
[Ab]I    [A]wanna stick around a while and get my kicks

Let’s [D]rock, let’s [A]rock
Every[E]body in the whole cell [D]block
was [A]dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

[Ab]    [A]Dancin in the jailhouse rock
[Ab]    [A]Dancin in the jailhouse rock
[Ab]    [A]Dancin in the jailhouse rock
[Ab]    [A]Dancin in the jailhouse rock[Ab]    [A]    


The warden threw a party at the county jail
The prison band was there and they began to wail
the band was jumpin and the joint began to swing
You should’ve hear those knocked out jailbirds sing

Let’s rock, let’s rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone
Little Joe was blowin’ on the slide trombone
The drummer boy from Illinois went crash boom bang
The whole rythm section was the Purple gang

Let’s rock, let’s rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

Number forty seven said to number three
You’re the cutest jailbird I everd did see
I sure would be delighted with your company
Come and do the jailhouse rock with me

Let’s rock, let’s rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

The sad Sack was sittin’ on a block of Stone
Way over in the corner weepin’ all alone
The warden said „Hey buddy don’t you be no square“
If you can’t find a partner use a wooden chair

Let’s rock, let’s rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

Shifty Henry said to Bugs „For heaven’s sakes“
„No one’s lookin’ now’s our chance to break“
Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said „Nix nix“
I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks

Let’s rock, let’s rock
Everybody in the whole cell block
was dancin’ to the jailhouse rock

Dancin in the jailhouse rock
Dancin in the jailhouse rock
Dancin in the jailhouse rock
Dancin in the jailhouse rock
