INTRO: B E F# B

I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob
          
He use-ta steal, gamble and rob
                                   E
He though he was the smartest guy around

But I found out last Monday, that Bob got locked up Sunday
     C#                               F#
They got him in the jailhouse way downtown


F#                    B
He's in the jailhouse now
F#                    E
He's in the jailhouse now
        F#
Well I told him once or twice

Stop playin' cards and a shootin' dice
                       B
He's in the jailhouse now

B           E 
Ah de yo-da lay-eee-he yo-teeee
            B
Ah de oh da lay e-oh-de-oh-toooo
      F#
Yo da lay-e-heee

Yo da lay-e-heee
      B
Yo da lay-heeeeeeee

Bob liked to play his poker 

Pinochle, Whist and Euchre (Pronounced Yoh-ker)
                                    E
But shooting dice was his favorite game

Well he got throwd in jail, with nobody to go his bail
     C#                                  F#
The judge done said that he refused the fine



F#                     B
He's in the jailhouse now 
F#                     E
He's in the jailhouse now
       F#
Well I told him once or twice 

Stop playin' cards and a shootin' dice
                       B
He's in the jailhouse now

B            E
Ah de yo-da lay-eee-he-heeeeee 
             B
Ah de oh da lay ee-he-teeeeee
       F#
Yo da lay-e-heee

Yo da lay-e-heee
       B
Yo da lay-eeeeeeee

Well I went out last Tuesday 

I met a girl named Susie
                              E
I said I was the swellest guy around

Well we started to spendin' my money

And she started to callin' me honey
   C#                       F#
We took in every cabaret in town


F#                     B
We're in the jailhouse now
F#                     E
We're in the jailhouse now
       F#
Well I told that judge right to his face

I don't like to see this place
                       B
We're in the jailhouse now

B            E
Ah de yo-da lay-eee-he-yo-leeee 
            B
Ah de oh da lay ee-he-teeeeee

      F#
Yo da lay-e-heee

Yo da lay-e-heee
      B
Yo da lay-heeeeeeee
