In the jailhouse now

Soggy Bottom Boys

 I had a friend named Ramblin' 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've got him in the jailhouse way down town.

        He's in the jailhouse now, he's in the jailhouse now
        I told him once or twice to stop playin' cards and shootin' dice
        He's in the jailhouse now

F - C - G - C

Bob liked to play his poker, Pinochle with Stan Yoker
But shootin' dice was his greatest game
Well he got throw'd in jail, with nobody to go his bail
The judge done said that he refused the fine.

Well I went out last Tuesday, I met a girl named Susie
I said I was the swellest guy around
Well we started to spendin' my money, Then she started to callin' me honey
We took in every cabaret in town.

We're in the jailhouse now, We're in the jailhouse now
I told that judge right to his face, I don't like to see this place
We're in the jailhouse now
