I look for trouble and I found it son
Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun
I tried to run but I don't think I can
You make one move and you're a dead man friend
C
Ain't living long like this
G D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby

He slipped the handcuffs on behind my back
And left me reeling on a steel reel rack
C
They got'em all in the jailhouse baby
G
Ain't living long like this
D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby

Grew up in Houston off the wayside drives
Son of a carhop and some all night dives
Dad drove a stock car to an early death
All I remember was a drunk man's breath
C
Ain't living long like this
G D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby

D7
You know the story how the wheel goes 'round
Don't let them take you to the man down town
C
Can't sleep at all in a jailhouse baby
G
Ain't living long like this
D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby

I live with Angel she's a roadhouse queen
Makes Texas Ruby look like Sandra Dee
I want to love her but I don't know how
I'm at the bottom in the jailhouse now
C
Ain't living long like this
G D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby

D7
You know the story about the jailhouse rock
Don't want to do it but just don't get caught
C
They got'em all in the jailhouse baby
G
Ain't living long like this
D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby
