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

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
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

Well I went out last Tuesday, met a girl named Susie
I told her I was the swellest man in town
Well she started in to spend my money, she started in to call me honey 
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
