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

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...

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

We're in the jailhouse now we're in the jailhouse now
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
