Webb Pierce – In The Jailhouse Now lyrics

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

Well I had a friend named Rambling 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 got him in the jailhouse way downtown
He's in the jailhouse now...
[ steel - fiddle ]
Now I went out last Tuesday I met a girl named Susie
I told her I was the swellest man around
We started to spend my money and she started to callin' me honey
We took in every honky tonk in town
We're in the jailhouse now...
