Chorus:
             D      E         A
She:  	Iím crying, jailhouse tears
			D	E	 A
	and Iíve been trying all these years
				    D	E
	Been trying to ride things out
				A
	but now Iím shifting gears
			D     E	          A
	and weíre both crying jailhouse tears

				D     E
He:  	They say I broke the law
		           A
	now everything is broken down
                           D     E
She:  	babe I know what I saw
	                   A
	I know you went downtown.

                       D     E
He:	I went to the corner
	                    A
	to get a cold six pack
                                D      E
She:	Youíre a drunk youíre a stoner
	                  A
	you never came back.

				    D	E
	Been trying to ride things out
				A
	but now Iím shifting gears
			D     E	          A
	and weíre both crying jailhouse tears
