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 cupHe's in the jailhouse now
He's in the jailhouse now
Well Campbell fluffed his dove
when he wore a tuxedo to the country club
He's in the jailhouse now

I met his old gal Sadie
She said have you seen Billy 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
While Campbell's put away
Sadie's with the sheriff everyday
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 Canpbell 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 were down at the railroad track
Stealin' a train to haul it back
They're in the jailhouse now
