In The Jailhouse Now

Jimmie Rodgers

4:4 Key:C

[C]I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob
Who used to steal, gamble and rob
He thought he was the [C7]smartest guy in [F]town
But I found out last Monday
That Bob got locked up Sunday
They've [D7]got him in the jailhouse way down [G]town. [G7]Ʌ

Refrain:
He's in the jailhouse [C]now
He's in the jailhouse [F]now
I [G]told him once or twice
To quit playin' cards and [G7]shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse [C]now. (Yodel)

He [C]played a game called poker
He knuckled with Dan Yoakum
But [C7]shootin' dice was his greatest [F]game
Now he's downtown in jail
Nobody to go his bail
The [D7]judge done said that he will pay the [G]fine. [G7]Ʌ

Refrain:
He's in the jailhouse [C]now
He's in the jailhouse [F]now
I [G]told him once or twice
To quit playin' cards and [G7]shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse [C]now. (Yodel)

[C]I went out last Tuesday
Met a girl named Susie
I told her I was the [C7]swellest man a[F]round
We started to spend my money
Then she started to call me honey
We [D7]took in every honky-tonk in [G]town. [G7]Ʌ

We're in the jailhouse [C]now
We're in the jailhouse [F]now
I [G]told the judge right to his face
We didn't like to [G7]see this place
We're in the jailhouse [C]now. (Yodel)
