    Lyrics

    (Jimmie Rodgers - Elsie McWilliams)

    Nobody knows about the jailhouse blues till you get within four walls
    The jailerman turns that big black key that's when your spirit falls
    You drag yourself up to the bars and while you gaze out at the stars
    This is what you'll say.

    Hey why did I stray from the rightous path, nobody knows but me
    There on the outside you all can laugh but I don't need your sympathy
    For after I've paid for the liquor I've stole
    I'll leave this place worth my weight in gold
    So why did I stray from the rightous path nobody knows but me.

    --- Instrumental ---

    When you realize that you're all alone seated in a two-by-four
    That little cell is just a taste of hell if you ain't been there before
    Well you're locked up tight but they treat you fair
    You get everything that you need in there
    That's just why you'll say.

    Well, why did I stray from the rightous path, nobody knows but me
    There on the outside you all can laugh but I don't need your sympathy
    For after I've paid for the liquor I've stole
    I'll leave this place worth my weight in gold
    So why did I stray from the rightous path nobody knows but me.

    Nobody knows but me...
