Jailhouse Rock


Elvis Presley


Key <E> ?


Warden threw a party in the county jail

Prison band was there they began to wail 

Band was jumping and the joint began to swing

You should of heard us rock that jail bird sing


Lets rock everybody lets rock

Everybody in the whole cell block

Was dancing to the jailhouse rock


Spider Murphy played the saxaphone

Little John blowing on the slide trombone

Drummer boy from Illinois crash boom bang

The whole rhythm section was a purple gang


Number forty seven said to number three

Your the cutest jailbird I ever did see

I sure would be delighted if you jump with me

Come on do the jailhouse rock with me


Sad Sack with sitting on a block of stone

In the corner weeping all aone

Warden said hey buddy don't you be so square

Can\t find a partner use a wooden chair


Shifty Henry said Buggs for heavens sake

No ones looking out chance to make a break

Buggs turn to shifty and he say nix nix

Wanna stay around wanna get my kicks
