Emmylou Harris - I Ain't Living Long Like This

  

(verse 1) 
C       
You  looked for trouble and you found it son,
        
Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun,
C       
You tried to run but I don't think you can,
C 
You make one move and you're a dead man friend,


(chorus)
             F
Ain't living long like this,
              C         
Can't live at all like this can I baby,
G       
He slipped the handcuffs on behind your back,
        
And left me freezing  on a steel rail track,
            F 
They got'em all in the jailhouse baby,
                C
I Ain't living long like this,


(verse 2)
C       
Grew up in Houston off the wayside drive,
        
Son of a carhop in some all night dives,
        
Dad drove a stock car to an early death,
        
All I remember was a drunk man's breath,


(chorus)
               F
I Ain't living long like this,
              C
Can't live at all like this can I baby,
 G          
You know the story how the wheel goes round,
        
Don't let them take you to the man downtown,
            F
They got ie all in  the jailhouse baby,
             C
Ain't living long like this,
        
Can't live at all like this can I baby,


(lead chords - - F - C - F - C - F - C)


(bridge)
C       
You live with Angel she's a roadhouse queen,
C       
Makes Texas Ruby look like Sandra Dee,
C       
You want to love her but you don't know how,
        
Your at the bottom in the jailhouse now,


(chorus)
             F
Ain't living long like this,
              C 
Can't live at all like this can I baby,
G       
You know the story about the jailhouse rock,
        
Go on and do it but just don't get caught,
               F  
Can't sleep at all in the jailhouse baby,
             C
Ain't living long like this,
        
Can't live at all like this can i baby,

Ain't living long like  this,


Outro - F - C - F - C - F - C
