Delbert Mcclinton – In The Jailhouse Now lyrics

I once had a friend named Campbell
He used rob, steal, drink, and gamble
He did every thing that was low down
He was tomcatin' one night
When he started a big fight
A big policeman came and knocked him down

He's in the jailhouse now
In the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice to quit playin' cards and shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

I went out last Tuesday,
Met a little girl named Susie
Told her I was the sharpest thing around
Now first she started callin' me honey
Then she started spendin' my money
We made every honky tonk in town

We're in the jailhouse now
In the jailhouse now
Told him time and again lay off that whiskey, stop drinkin' that gin
He's in the jailhouse now

Do da da do.....

I went out last Tuesday (What?!)
Met a little girl named Susie (Who?!)
Told her I was the sharpest thing around
First she started callin' me honey (Honey)
Then she started spendin' my money (Honey, honey)
We made every honky tonk in town (In this town)

We're in the jailhouse now
In the jailhouse now
I told him time and again lay off that whiskey, stop drinkin' that gin

He's in the jailhouse now
In the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice quit playin' cards and shootin' dice

He's in the jailhouse now
In the jailhouse now
I told him several times you're wastin' your money spending your time
In the jailhouse now
