Ain’t Living Long Like This
recorded by Waylon Jennings
written by Rodney J. Crowell
 
G
I look for trouble and I found it son

Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun

I tried to run but I don't think I can

You make one move and you're a dead man friend
C
Ain't living long like this
G D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby

D7
He slipped the handcuffs on behind my back

And left me reeling on a steel reel rack
C
They got'em all in the jailhouse baby
G
Ain't living long like this
D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby


Grew up in Houston off the wayside drives

Son of a carhop and some all night dives

Dad drove a stock car to an early death

All I remember was a drunk man's breath
C
Ain't living long like this
G D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby

D7
You know the story how the wheel goes 'round

Don't let them take you to the man down town
C
Can't sleep at all in a jailhouse baby
G
Ain't living long like this
D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby


I live with Angel she's a roadhouse queen

Makes Texas Ruby look like Sandra Dee

I want to love her but I don't know how

I'm at the bottom in the jailhouse now
C
Ain't living long like this
G D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby

D7
You know the story about the jailhouse rock

Don't want to do it but just don't get caught
C
They got'em all in the jailhouse baby
G
Ain't living long like this
D7 G
Can't live at all like this can I baby
