In the Jailhouse Now Song Lyrics

 
The Soggy Bottom Boys
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
In the Jailhouse Now I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob
Who used to steal gamble and rob
He thought he was he was the smartest guy around
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 stop playin' cards and shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

Yodel...



Bob liked to play his Poker, Pinochle, Whist and Euchre But shooting dice
But shootin' dice was his favorite game
Well, he got throwed 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 quit 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 started to spendin' my money
An' 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 told that judge right to his face,
I don't like to see this place
We're in the jailhouse now
Yodel...
