In the Jailhouse Now                      arrangement (c) 1967 Michael Cooney
Permission obtained to copy tablature for free distribution with this notice.

Transcription by Allyn Dimock.  There are doubtless errors.  Please use in
conjunction with recorded song on "Michael Cooney: Singer of Old Songs"
Front Hall 007.

Rag in C.  4/4 with swing.  Accompaniment transcribed, break is similar
except mm 22-27.  Note the G run is very similar to Blind Blake's version
but the rest of the arrangement is fancier.  Note: it's been a while since
I double checked against the record, so the arrangement could have shifted
slightly for my fingers: Just take the version on the record and put it
through your handy MacFolk (tm) folk processor a few times to get this
version.
