[Intro]
B E F# B

[Verse]
B
I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob
N.C.          
He use-ta steal, gamble and rob
                                   E
He though he was the smartest guy around
N.C.
But I found out last Monday, that Bob got locked up Sunday
     C#                               F#
They got him in the jailhouse way downtown

[Chorus]
F#                    B
He's in the jailhouse now
                      E
He's in the jailhouse now
        F#
Well I told him once or twice
N.C.
Stop playin' cards and a shootin' dice
                       B
He's in the jailhouse now

B           E 
Ah de yo-da lay-eee-he yo-teeee
            B
Ah de oh da lay e-oh-de-oh-toooo
      F#
Yo da lay-e-heee
N.C.
Yo da lay-e-heee
      B
Yo da lay-heeeeeeee

[Verse]
B
Bob liked to play his poker 
N.C.
Pinochle, Whist and Euchre (Pronounced Yoh-ker)
                                    E
But shooting dice was his favorite game
N.C.
Well he got throwd in jail, with nobody to go his bail
     C#                                  F#
The judge done said that he refused the fine

[Chorus]
F#                     B
He's in the jailhouse now 
                       E
He's in the jailhouse now
       F#
Well I told him once or twice 
N.C.
Stop playin' cards and a shootin' dice
                       B
He's in the jailhouse now
B            E
Ah de yo-da lay-eee-he-heeeeee 
             B
Ah de oh da lay ee-he-teeeeee
       F#
Yo da lay-e-heee
N.C.
Yo da lay-e-heee
       B
Yo da lay-eeeeeeee

[Verse]
B
Well I went out last Tuesday 
N.C.
I met a girl named Susie
                              E
I said I was the swellest guy around

Well we started to spendin' my money

And she started to callin' me honey
   C#                       F#
We took in every cabaret in town
F#                     B
We're in the jailhouse now
                       E
We're in the jailhouse now
       F#
Well I told that judge right to his face
N.C.
I don't like to see this place
                       B
We're in the jailhouse now

[Bridge]
B            E
Ah de yo-da lay-eee-he-yo-leeee 
            B
Ah de oh da lay ee-he-teeeeee

[Outro]
      F#
Yo da lay-e-heee
N.C.
Yo da lay-e-heee
      B
Yo da lay-heeeeeeee

This is the most accurate version I've come across.

I think it plays better without the F# at the beginning of the second "We're in the jailhouse now" in the chorus, but that is IMHO.

Pooreddy, I think you're right. I'm not sure how that got in there, but those F#s should be left out. Oops.
