Nobody Knows But Me
Recorded by Lefty Frizzell
Written by Jimmie Rodgers and Elsie McWilliams

C Am Dm G7 C
Nobody knows about the jailhouse blues till you get within four walls
Am D7 G7
The old jailer man turns the big black keys that's when your spirit falls
Then you drag yourself up to the bars
F Fm
And while you gaze out at the stars
D7 G7
This is what you'll say

C Am Dm G7 C
Why did I stray from the righteous path nobody knows but me
A7 D7 G7
There on the outside you often dare I don't need your sympathy
For after I paid for the liquor I stole
I'll leave this place with my weight in gold
Am G7 C
Why did I stray from the righteous path nobody knows but me

Am Dm G7 C
When you realize that you're all alone seated in a two by four
Am D7 G7
That little cell is just a taste of hell if you ain't been there before
You're locked up tight but they treat you fair
F Fm
You get everything that you need in there
D7 G7
That's just why you'll say

Repeat #2

D7 G7 C
Nobody knows but me
