[C]Well I had a friend named Rambling Bob
Who used to steal gamble and rob
He thought he was the [C7]smartest guy in [F]town
[F]But I found out last Monday that Bob got locked up Sunday
They [D]got him in the jailhouse way [G]downtown

{c:Estribillo}
He's in the jailhouse [C]now
He's in the jailhouse [F]now
I [G]told him once or twice
To quit playin' cards and a shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse [C]now

[C]Now I went out last Tuesday
I met a girl named Susie
I told her I was the [C7]swellest man [F]around
[F]We started to spend my money
And she started to callin' me honey
We [D]took in every honky tonk in [G]town

{soc}
{c:Estribillo}
We're in the jailhouse [C]now
We're in the jailhouse [F]now
They [G]told us once or twice
To quit playin' cards and a shootin' dice
We're in the jailhouse [C]now
