Jailhouse Rock (Elvis Presley)

F#  ||:  G                  |  (G)             F#  :||
The warden threw a party in the county jail
The prison band was there and they began to wail
The band was jumpin’ and the joint began to swing
You should’ve heard those knocked out jailbirds sing

        ||   C            |   C            |   G           |   G             |
Let’s rock, everybody, let’s rock
        |    D              |   D             |
Everybody in the whole cellblock

        |   G               |    G              ||
Was dancin’ to the Jailhouse Rock

Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone
Little Joe was blowin’ on the slide trombone
The drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang
the whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang

Chorus

Number forty-seven said to number three:
“You’re the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
I sure would be delighted with your company,
come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me”

Chorus

The sad sack was a sittin’ on a block of stone
way over in the corner weepin’ all alone.
The warden said, “Hey, buddy, don’t you be no square.
If you can’t find a partner use a wooden chair.”

Chorus

Shifty Henry said to Bugs, “For Heaven’s sake,
no one’s lookin’, now’s our chance to make a break”
Bugsy turned to Shifty and he said, “Nix nix,
I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks”

Chorus
