[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
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
[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
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
SOLO
[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
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
F C F C F C and fade out
