written by Rodney Crowell

performed by Waylon Jennings.


Verse 1:
   D   A
	I look for trouble and i found it son

	Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun
                            
	I tried to run but i don't think i can
               
	You make one move and you're a dead man friend
                      D
	Ain't living long like this
                     A
	Can't live at all like this,can i baby?
            E
	He slipped the handcuffs on behind my back

	And left me reeling on a steel reel rack
                    D 
	They got'em all in the jailhouse baby
                       A
	Ain't living long like this
             
	Can't live at all like this,can i baby?


Verse 2:
         A 
	Grew up in Houston off the wayside drives

	Son of a carhop and some all night dives

	Dad drove a stock car to an early death

	All i remember was a drunk man's breath
                      D
	Ain't living long like this
                     A
	Can't live at all like this,can i baby?
            E 
	You know the story how the wheel goes 'round

	Don't let them take you to the man down town
                      D
	Can't sleep at all in a jailhouse baby
                      A
	Ain't living long like this

	Can't live at all like this,can i baby?


Verse 3:
           A   
	I live with Angel she's a roadhouse queen

	Makes Texas Ruby look like Sandra Dee

	I want to love her but i don't know how

	I'm at the bottom in the jailhouse now
                      D
	Ain't living long like this
                     A 
	Can't live at all like this,can i baby?
            E 
	You know the story about the jailhouse rock

	Don't want to do it but just don't get caught
                    D  
	They got'em all in the jailhouse baby
                      A
	Ain't living long like this

	Can't live at all like this,can i baby?
