In The Jailhouse Now

Soggy Bottom Boys



1. I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob who used to steal, gamble and rob

2. Bob liked to play his poker, Pinochle with Stan Yoker

Well I went out last Tuesday, I met a girl named Susie


1. He thought he was the smartest guy in town

2. But shootin' dice was his greatest game

3. I said I was the swellest guy around


1. But I found out last Monday that Bob got locked up Sunday

2. Well he got throw’d in jail, with nobody to go his bail

3. Well we started to spendin’ my money, Then she started to callin’ me honey

               D                                                     G

1. They've got him in the jailhouse way down town.

2. The judge done said that he refused the fine.

3. We took in every cabaret in town. (-> CHORUS 2)



          G                              C                                       F                               

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


          I told him once or twice to stop playin' cards and shootin' dice


          He's in the jailhouse now

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
