In The Jailhouse Now

Well I had a friend named Gambling Bob he used to steal gamble and rob
He thought 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 down town
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 around
We started to spend my money and she started to call me honey
We took in every cabarete in town
We're in the jailhouse now we're in the jailhouse now
I've told the judge right to his face we didn't like to see this place
We're in the jailhouse now
