IN THE JAILHOUSE NOW (Written by Jimmie Rodgers (1930-31)) Jimmie Rodgers Also recorded by : Hank Snow, Sir Douglas Quintet, Johnny Cash, etc ... I had a friend named Ramblin Bob He used to steal gamble and rob He thought he was the smartest guy around Well 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 Well, I told him once or twice to stop playin cards and shootin dice He's in the jailhouse now Bob liked to play his poker Pinochle whist and euchre But shootin dice was his favorite game He got throw'd in jail with nobody to go his bail The judge done said that he refused to the fine He's in the jailhouse now He's in the jailhouse now Well, I told him once or twice to stop playin cards and shootin dice He's in the jailhouse now Well I went out last Tuesday I met a girl named Suzie I said I was the swellest guy around Well we got to spendin 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 We're in the jailhouse now Well I told that judge right to his face I don't like to see this place We're in the jailhouse now (Contributed by Sören Sjögren - December 2002)
