He's in the jailhouse now
He's in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice
To quit playin' cards and shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

Well I had a friend named Rambling Bob
Who used to steal, gamble and rob
He thought he was the smartest guy in town
But I found out last Monday, that Bob got locked up Sunday
They got him in the jailhouse way downtown

He's in the jailhouse now
He's in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice
To quit playin' cards and shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

Well I went out last Tuesday
I met a girl named Susie
I told her I was the swellest man around
Well she started and to spend my money
She started and to callin' me honey
We took in every honky tonk in town

We're in the jailhouse now
We're in the jailhouse now
They told us once or twice
To quit playin' cards and shootin' dice
We're in the jailhouse now
