Nobody Knows But Me-crd  Jimmie Rodgers

[D]Nobody knows 'bout the jailhouse b[B7]lues,  Till you get [B7]within four wal[A7]ls,[D]
ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊB7 E7 A7
And the old jailer man turns that big black key, That's when your spirit falls.
D D7ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊG A7 D D7 A
Then you drag yourself up to the bars and while you gaze out at the stars this is what you say.
CHORUS:  Why di[D]d I stray from the righteous path[B7],  Nobody knows but [E7]me,
DÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊB7 E7ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊA7
There on the outside you all can laugh, I don't need your sympathy.
D7 D7 GÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊA7 D
For after I've paid for the liquor I sold, I'll leave this place worth my weight in gold.
ÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊB7 E7 A7 E7 D A7
So why did I stray from the righteous path, Nobody knows but me. TAG: Nobody knows but me.
DÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊÊB7 E7 D B7
2. When you realize that you're all alone, Sitting in a two by four that little cell is just a taste of hell,
If y[E7]ou ain't been there before[A7].  You are locked up [D]tight, but they treat you fair.
You get [G]ev'rything that you need in th[A7]ere that's just w[E7]hy you say.               [A]REPEAT CHORUS
