Chorus:
             D      E         A
She:  	I’m crying, jailhouse tears
			D	E	 A
	and I’ve been trying all these years
				    D	E
	Been trying to ride things out
				A
	but now I’m shifting gears
			D     E	          A
	and we’re 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:	You’re a drunk you’re a stoner
	                  A
	you never came back.

                       D     E
He:	They locked me up
                          A
	and you locked me out
                              D         E
She:  	You tried to steal my truck, but
                                  A	
	That’s not what this is about

                        D    E
He:  	I used to be a user
                              A		
	but now I’m all out of stuff
                         D    E
She:  	You’re a 3 time loser
                          A		
	you’re all fucked up

Chorus:  He and She together
            D        E         A
	I’m crying, jailhouse tears
			D	E	 A
	and I’ve been trying all these years
				    D	E
	Been trying to ride things out
				A
	but now I’m shifting gears
			D     E	          A
	and we’re both crying jailhouse tears


Guitar Solo
                               D     E
He: 	I’ll prove it to you somehow
	                     A
       	I’m done with every bit
                           D       E
	look at me, I’m clean now

			    A
She:  	you’re so full of shit

                            D    E
He:	I swear I will tell all
	                    A
	look in my dresser drawers

                           D      E
She:  	Now I’m behind the 8-ball
		        A
	you’re behind bars.
