Waylon Jennings I Aint Living Lyrics

Last updated: 12/15/2011 10:00:00 AM

I looked 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
Then 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 of Wayside Drive
Son of a carhop in some all night dive
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 downtown
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
Make 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?
