Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob
Who used to steal, gamble and rob

Men star right one time around
Left allemande, weave the ring
He's in the jailhouse now
Swing that girl and promenade
(I told him) Once or twice no cards, no dice
He's in the jailhouse now


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) slide thru, all double pass thru
Centers in, cast off 3/4 round, up and back
Pass thru, tag the line, cloverleaf
Centers pass thru, slide thru, square thru 3/4 round
Swing that corner and promenade
(I told him) Once or twice, no cards, no dice
He's in the jailhouse now


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
(Music - 32 beats)
Four ladies promenade
One time around, get home and you swing and promenade
(I told him) Once or twice, no cards, no dice
He's in the jailhouse now


TAG

(I told him) Once or twice, no cards, no dice
He's in the jailhouse now

In The Jailhouse Now Lyrics ID: 3306

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 duff 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 Bill 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 every day
He's in the jailhouse now (he's in the jailhouse now)

Well I remember the last election, the prohibitionists were in action
They's tryin' to elect themselves a president
Bill Campbell and John Austin walked from New Orleans to Boston
And they've got a bottle in every settlement

They're in the jailhouse now (they're in the jailhouse now)
They're in the jailhouse now (they're in the jailhouse now)
They were down at the railroad track stealin' a train to haul it back
They're in the jailhouse now (they're in the jailhouse now)

---

Well I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob
Who used to steal, gamble and rob
He thought he was the smartest guy in town
But I found out last Monday
That Bob got locked up Sunday
They got him in the jailhouse way down town

He's in the jailhouse now
He's in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice
To quit playin' cards and shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

He's playing a game named poker
He knuckled with Dan Yoakum
But shooting dice was his greatest game
Now he's downtown in jail, nobody's to go his bail
The judge done said that he refused a fine

He's in the jailhouse now
He's in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice
To quit playin' cards and shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

Well I went out last Tuesday
Met a girl named Susie
I told her I was the swellest man around
We started to spend my money
Then she started to call me honey
We took in every cabaret in town

We're in the jailhouse now
We're in the jailhouse now
I told the judge right to his face
We didn't like to see this place
We're in the jailhouse now

Lyrics by traditional.
