Nobody Knows But Me-crd

Jimmie Rodgers

 DB7B7A7D
 Nobody knows 'bout the jailhouse blues,  Till you get within four walls, 
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.
 DB7E7
CHORUS:  Why did I stray from the righteous path,  Nobody knows but 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,
 E7A7D
If you ain't been there before.  You are locked up tight, but they treat you fair.
 GA7E7A
You get ev'rything that you need in there that's just why you say.               REPEAT CHORUS
