INTRO:  Strum The "C"  
  
VERSE ONE   
C  
I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob  
  
Who used to steal, gamble and rob  
                       C7             F  
He thought he was the smartest guy in town  
  
But I found out last Monday  
  
That Bob got locked up Sunday  
        D               D7                G  
They've got him in the jailhouse way down town.  
  
BRIDGE  
G                     C                C7        F  
He's in the jailhouse now..He's in the jailhouse now  
   G                                                G7  
I told him once or twice.To quit playin' cards and shootin' dice  
                      C  
He's in the jailhouse now.   
  
(Yodel)  
   C                     G  
O'-lay-hee......O'-dee-o-lee-hee  
         C                           G  
Ah'-he-o-lay-hee....Te-da-de-de...O'-lay-hee  
  
  
BRIDGE REPEAT INSTRUMENTALLY (NO YODEL)  
  
  
VERSE TWO  
He played a game called poker  
He knuckled with Dan Yoakum  
But shootin' dice was his greatest game  
Now he's downtown in jail  
Nobody to go his bail  
The judge done said that he will pay the fine.  
  
BRIDGE (WITH YODEL)  
  
REPEAT BRIDGE INSTRUMENTALLY (NO YODEL)  
  
VERSE THREE  
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  
Then she started to call me honey  
We took in every cabaret in town.  
  
BRIDGE 2  
G                      C  
We're in the jailhouse now  
             C7        F  
We're in the jailhouse now  
  G  
I told the judge right to his face  
                  G7  
We didn't like to see this place  
                       C  
We're in the jailhouse now.   
(Yodel)  
   C                  G  
O'-lay-hee...O'-dee-o-lee-hee  
         C                         G  
Ah'-he-o-lay-hee..Te-da-de-de...O'-lay-hee
