"In The Jailhouse Now"

I had a friend named Bill Campbell he used to rob steal and gamble

And on the side he'd beg so he mopped up

I told him he shouldn't do it and Campbell told me he knew it

So he started beggin' with a bucket instead of a cup



He's in the jailhouse now (he's in the jailhouse now)

He's in the jailhouse now (he's in the jailhouse now)

Well Campbell fluffed his dove when he wore a tuxedo to the country club

He's in the jailhouse now (he's in the jailhouse now)

I met his old gal Sadie she said have you seen Billy lately

I said I don't believe that he's about

She went down to the jail she went down to take him his mail

Then she whispered sheriff please don't let him out



He's in the jailhouse now (he's in the jailhouse now)

He's in the jailhouse now (he's in the jailhouse now)

While Campbell's put away Sadie's with the sheriff everyday

He's in the jailhouse now (he's in the jailhouse now)

[ guitar ]

Well I remember the last election the prohibitionists were in action

They's tryin' to elect themselves a president

Bill Canpbell and John Austin walked from New Orleans to Boston

And they've got a bottle in every settlement



They're in the jailhouse now (he's in the jailhouse now)

They're in the jailhouse now (he's in the jailhouse now)

They were down at the railroad track stealin' a train to haul it back

They're in the jailhouse now (he's in the jailhouse now)
