Verse 1:
D A
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
D
Ain't living long like this
A
Can't live at all like this,can i baby?
E
He slipped the handcuffs on behind my back

And left me reeling on a steel reel rack
D
They got'em all in the jailhouse baby
A
Ain't living long like this

Can't live at all like this,can i baby?

Verse 2:
A
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
D
Ain't living long like this
A
Can't live at all like this,can i baby?
E
You know the story how the wheel goes 'round

Don't let them take you to the man down town
D
Can't sleep at all in a jailhouse baby
A
Ain't living long like this

Can't live at all like this,can i baby?

Verse 3:
A
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
D
Ain't living long like this
A
Can't live at all like this,can i baby?
E
You know the story about the jailhouse rock

Don't want to do it but just don't get caught
D
They got'em all in the jailhouse baby
A
Ain't living long like this

Can't live at all like this,can i baby?
