Hank Thompson – In The Jailhouse Now lyrics
IN THE JAILHOUSE NOW
(Jimmie Rodgers)
" © '28 Peer International "
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've got him in the jailhouse way downtown
He's in the jailhouse now he's in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice to quit playin' cards and shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now
He played the game called poker he knocked all with an yoker
But shootin' dice was his greatest game
Now he's downtown in jail nobody's to go his bail
The judge done said that he'll refuse to find
He's in the jailhouse now...
Now 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 and she started to callin' me honey
We took in every cabaret in town
We're in the jailhouse now we're in the jailhouse now
I've told the judge right to his face we didn't like to see this place
We're in the jailhouse now
