Hank Thompson In The Jailhouse Now Lyrics

Last updated: 01/12/2013 05:51:25 AM

I HAD A FRIEND NAMED RAMBLING BOB
HE USED TO STEAL, GAMBLE AND ROB
HE THOUGHT HE WAS THE SMARTEST MAN IN TOWN
BUT I FOUND OUT LAST MONDAY
BOB GOT LOCKED UP SUNDAY
THEY'VE GOT HIM IN THAT JAILHOUSE WAY DOWNTOWN

Chorus:
HE'S IN THE JAILHOUSE NOW (2x)
I TOLD HIM ONCE ORT TWICE
QUIT PLAYING CARDS AND SHOOTING DICE
HE'S IN THE JAILHOUSE NOW

BOB LIKED TO PLAY HIS POKER
PINNOCHLE, WHIST, AND EUCHRE
BUT SHOOTING DICE WAS HIS GREATEST GAME
NOW HE'S LOCKED UP IN THE JAIL
NOBODY TO GO HIS BAIL
THE JUDGE DONE SAID THAT HE REFUSED A FINE... (Chorus)

WELL I WENT OUT LAST TUESDAY
MET A GAL NAMED SUSIE
TOLD HER I WAS THE SWELLEST MAN AROUND
WE STARTED SPENDING MY MONEY
SHE STARTED CALLING ME "HONEY"
WE WENT IN EVERY HONKYTONK IN TOWN

WE'RE IN THE JAILHOUSE NOW (2x)
I TOLD THAT JUDGE RIGHT TO HIS FACE
"I DON'T LIKE TO SEE THIS PLACE"
WE'RE IN THE JAILHOUSE NOW (2x)
