In The Jailhouse Now

print

I had a friend named Ramblin Bob
He used to steal gamble and rob
He thought he was the smartest guy around
Well I found out last Monday
That Bob got locked up Sunday
They’ve got him in the jailhouse way downtown

   He’s in the jailhouse now
   He’s in the jailhouse now
   Well, I told him once or twice to
   stop playin cards and shootin dice
   He’s in the jailhouse now

Bob liked to play his poker
Pinochle whist and euchre
But shootin dice was his favorite game
He got throw’d in jail with nobody to go his bail
The judge done said that he refused to the fine

Well I went out last Tuesday
I met a girl named Suzie
I said I was the swellest guy around
Well we got to spendin my money
And she started to callin me honey
We took in every cabaret in town
We’re in the jailhouse now
