Jail House Blues
Gene Autry

I used to be a rambler
Bootlegger and gambler
But really I was a good man
One day I sold some gin, so led to the wrong man
Now they've got me down here in the camp

  I've got the jail house blues
  The blues I can't lose
  Now if ever I'd get free
  There'll be no whsikey for me
  I've got the jail house blues
  Yodelahee

I called up my honey
Said: dear, bring me down some money
They've got me down here in the jail
Won't you go my bail
And git me out o' jail
But she said: go and tell it to the judge!

  I've got the jail house blues
  The blues I can't lose
  My baby turned me down
  When I'd get out, I'd leave this doggone town
  I've got that jail house blues
  Yodelahee

Now you can understand
Why these doggone women love the men
But way down till he runs out o' door
They kick you in the pen
Ever' time they get a chance
And they won't be your gal no more
