In The Jailhouse Now


by Guy Clark. Buy album CD: Other Songs B - V


I had a friend named Bill Campbell he used to rob steal and gamble

And on the side he'd beg so he mopped up

Well I told ol' Billy shouldn't do but ol' Bill said that he knew it

So he started beggin' with a bucket instead of a cup

He's in the jailhouse now he's in the jailhouse now

Now ol' Bill fluffed his dove

When he wrote a tuxedo to the country club

He's in the jailhouse now

[ yodel ]

Now Bill had a gal named Saddie and she said have you seen Billy lately

No I don't believe that he's about

But ol' Saddie went down to the jail she it was just to take him his mail

Then she whispered sheriff please don't let him out

He's in the jailhouse now he's in the jailhouse now

It was while ol' Bill's away

Saddie's with the sheriff everyday he's in the jailhouse now

[ yodel ]

[ piano - guitar ]

[ yodel ]

Well I remember the last election the prohibitionists were in action

Tryin' to elect themselves a president

Bill Canpbell and John Austin they rode from New Orleans to Boston

And they've got a bottle in every settlement

They're in the jailhouse now they're in the jailhouse now

Lord they caught them out by the railroad track

Stealin' a train to haul it back they're in the jailhouse now

[ yodel ]
