      About "In The Jailhouse Now"

      Lyrics for Guy Clark - "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

      Well, I told ol' Billy shouldn't do it
      And ol' Bill said that 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
      Now ol' Bill fluffed his dove
      When he wrote a tuxedo to the country club
      He's in the jailhouse now

      Now Bill had a gal named Sadie
      And she said have you seen Billy lately
      No I don't believe that he's about

      But ol' Sadie went down to the jail
      It was just to pay his bail
      Then she whispered
      Sheriff please don't let him out

      He's in the jailhouse now
      He's in the jailhouse now
      It was while ol' Bill's away
      Sadie's with the sheriff everyday
      He's in the jailhouse now

      Oh, you remember the last election, yeah
      The prohibitionists was in action
      Tryin' to elect themselves a president

      And Bill Campbell and John Austin
      They rode from New Orleans to Boston
      [Incomprehensible] bottle in every settlement

      They're in the jailhouse now
      They're in the jailhouse now
      Lord they caught them down by the railroad track
      Stealin' a train to haul it back
      They're in the jailhouse now
