Lyrics

I look for trouble and i found it son Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun I tried to run but i don't think i can You make one move and you're a dead man friend Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can i baby? He slipped the handcuffs on behind my back And left me reeling on a steel reel rack They got'em all in the jailhouse baby Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can i baby?

Grew up in Houston off the wayside drives Son of a carhop and some all night dives Dad drove a stock car to an early death All i remember was a drunk man's breath Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can i baby? You know the story how the wheel goes 'round Don't let them take you to the man down town Can't sleep at all in a jailhouse baby Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can i baby? I live with Angel she's a roadhouse queen Makes Texas Ruby look like Sandra Dee I want to love her but i don't know how I'm at the bottom in the jailhouse now Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can i baby? You know the story about the jailhouse rock Don't want to do it but just don't get caught They got'em all in the jailhouse baby Ain't living long like this Can't live at all like this,can i baby?
