Aint Living Long Like This2

Emmylou Harris

(verse 1)
 C
 You  looked for trouble and you found it son,
Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun,
 C
 You tried to run but I don't think you can,
 C
 You make one move and you're a dead man friend,
(chorus)
 F
Ain't living long like this,
 C
Can't live at all like this can I baby,
 G
 He slipped the handcuffs on behind your back,
And left me freezing on a steel rail track,
 F
They got'em all in the jailhouse baby,
 C
I Ain't living long like this,
(verse 2)
 C
 Grew up in Houston off the wayside drive,
Son of a carhop in some all night dives,
Dad drove a stock car to an early death,
All I remember was a drunk man's breath,
(chorus)
 F
I Ain't living long like this,
 C
Can't live at all like this can I baby,
 G
You know the story how the wheel goes round,
Don't let them take you to the man downtown,
 F
They got ie all in  the jailhouse baby,
 C
Ain't living long like this,
Can't live at all like this can I baby,
(bridge)
 C
 You live with Angel she's a roadhouse queen,
 C
 Makes Texas Ruby look like Sandra Dee,
 C
 You want to love her but you don't know how,
Your at the bottom in the jailhouse now,
(chorus)
 F
Ain't living long like this,
 C
Can't live at all like this can I baby,
 G
 You know the story about the jailhouse rock,
Go on and do it but just don't get caught,
 F
Can't sleep at all in the jailhouse baby,
 C
Ain't living long like this,
Can't live at all like this can i baby,
Ain't living long like this,
