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)
Ain't living [F]long like this,
Can't live at [C]all like this can I baby,
[G]He slipped the handcuffs on behind your back,
And left me freezing on a steel rail track,
They got'em [F]all in the jailhouse baby,
I Ain't living l[C]ong 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)
I Ain't living [F]long like this,
Can't live at [C]all like this can I baby,
Y[G]ou know the story how the wheel goes round,
Don't let them take you to the man downtown,
They got ie [F]all in  the jailhouse baby,
Ain't living [C]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)
Ain't living [F]long like this,
Can't live at [C]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,
Can't sleep at [F]all in the jailhouse baby,
Ain't living [C]long like this,
Can't live at all like this can i baby,
Ain't living long like this,
