Soggy Bottom Boys – In The Jailhouse Now lyrics

I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob
Who used to steal gamble and rob
He thought he was the smartest guy in town
But I found out last Monday
That Bob got locked up Sunday
They've got him in the jailhouse way down town
He's in the jailhouse now he's in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice quit playin' cards and shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

Yodel...

Bob like to play his poker, peaknuckle whist and euchre
But shooting dice was his favourite game
Well he got throw'd in jail, with nobody to go his bail
The judge done said that he refused a fine
He's in the jailhouse now he's in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice stop playin' cards and shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

Yodel...

I went out last Tuesday I met a girl named Susie
I said I was the swellest guy around
We started to spend my money
And 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 that judge right to his face
I don't like to see this place
We're in the jailhouse now

Yodel...
