Lyrics

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

Well I had a friend named Ramblin' 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 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 To quit playin' cards and shootin' dice He's in the jailhouse now Well I went out last Tuesday Met a girl named Susie I told her I was the swellest man around Well she started in to spend my money She started in to call me honey We took in every honky tonk in town We're in the jailhouse now We're in the jailhouse now They told us once or twice To quit playin' cards and shootin' dice We're in the jailhouse now
