IN THE JAILHOUSE NOW - No. 1 Words and music by Jimmie Rodgers
[D] I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob Who used to steal, gamble and rob He thought he was the smartest guy in [G] town But I found out last Monday That Bob got locked up Sunday They've [A] got him in the [E] jailhouse way down [A] town.
Refrain: He's in the [D] jailhouse now He's in the [G] jailhouse now I [A] told him once or twice To quit playin' cards and shootin' [A7] dice He's in the [A] jailhouse [D] now. (Yodel)
He played a game called poker He knuckled with Dan Yoakum But shootin' dice was his greatest game Now he's downtown in jail Nobody to go his bail The judge done said that he will pay the fine.
Refrain:
I went out last Tuesday Met a girl named Susie I told her I was the swellest man around We started to spend my money Then she started to call me honey We took in every cabaret in town.
We're in the jailhouse now We're in the jailhouse now I told the judge right to his face We didn't like to see this place
We're in the jailhouse now. (Yodel)
