NOBODY KNOWS BUT ME
JIMMIE RODGERS

VERSE 1:
C A7Nobody knows 'bout the jailhouse blues,
D7 G7 CTill you get within four walls,
C A7And the old jailer man turns that big black key,
D7 G7That's when your spirit falls.
C C7Then you drag yourself up to the bars
F G7 Cand while you gaze out at the stars
G7 D7 Gthis is what you say...
CHORUS:
C A7Why did I stray from the righteous path,
D7 G7 CNobody knows but me,
C A7There on the outside you all can laugh,
D7 G7I don't need your sympathy.
C C7For after I've paid for the liquor I sold,
F G7 CI'll leave this place worth my weight in gold.
A7 D7So why did I stray from the righteous path,
G7 CNobody knows but me.
C G7 CNobody knows but me.
VERSE 2:
C A7When you realize that you're all alone,
D7 G7 CSitting in a two by four
C A7that little cell is just a taste of hell,
D7 G7If you ain't been there before.
C C7You are locked up tight, but they treat you fair.
F G7 CYou get ev'rything that you need in there
G7 D7 Gthat's just why you say...
CHORUS:
C A7Why did I stray from the righteous path,
D7 G7 CNobody knows but me,
C A7There on the outside you all can laugh,
D7 G7I don't need your sympathy.
C C7For after I've paid for the liquor I sold,
F G7 CI'll leave this place worth my weight in gold.
A7 D7So why did I stray from the righteous path,
G7 CNobody knows but me.
C G7 CNobody knows but me.
