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

Ain't living long like this

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


He slipped the handcuffs on behind my back

And left me reeling on a steel reel rack

They got'em all in the jailhouse baby

Ain't living long like this

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


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

Ain't living long like this

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


You know the story how the wheel goes 'round

Don't let them take you to the man down town

Can't sleep at all in a jailhouse baby

Ain't living long like this

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


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

Ain't living long like this

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


You know the story about the jailhouse rock

Don't want to do it but just don't get caught

They got'em all in the jailhouse baby

Ain't living long like this

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