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 shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now
Well, I had a friend named Rambling Bob
Who used to steal gamble and rob
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
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, phone-up little-nosed Suzie
I told her I was the swellest man in town
She started to call me honey she started to spend my money
And 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, we're in the jailhouse now
