You hear me singin,
Down in the bottom of the world,
A thousand miles from nowhere, dreamin bout a girl
She used to love me but I, went away,

They gonna keep me here til the Judgement Day.
Lord, lord, lord, I got the Jailhouse Blues

Ain't no tellin,
What a man will do,
This old world, to make it through,
Some would murder with a gun or a knife,
Some would lock a man away for the rest of his life,
Lord, lord, lord, I got the Jailhouse Blues

I got the Jailhouse Blues,
Just as blue as I can be,
My baby got a heart,
Like a rock in the bottom of the sea
I got the Jailhouse Blues,
An it ain't no lie, lawd,
Lock on the door. I broke the law,
I got the Jailhouse Blues, (play it for me..),

They says a blind man,
Don't see nothin when he dream,
There's plenty things, wish I never seen.
I wish I never seen her askin why,
When they come and taken me, the way that she cried,
Lord, lord, lord,
I got the Jailhouse Blues

I got the Jailhouse Blues,
Just as blue as I can can be,
My baby got a heart,
Like a rock in the bottom of the sea.
I got the Jailhouse Blues,
An it ain't no lie, lawd,

Lock on the door, I broke the law,
I got the Jailhouse blues

I got the Jailhouse Blues,
Just as blue as I can be,
My baby got a heart,
Like a rock in the bottom of the sea,
I got the Jailhouse Blues,
An it ain't no lie, lawd,
Lock on the door, I broke the law,
I got the Jailhouse Blues.
