Ain't Living Long Like This - by Rodney Crowell
Note:  This is played tuned a half-step down, or in Ab on the records
Live - I've seen Rodney play it in the keys of A and in straight E.  Go figure.

Verse 1:   D   A
A
I looked for trouble and I found it son
Straight down the barrel of a lawman's gun
Tried to run but I don't think I can
You make one move and you're a dead man friend
A                 D
Ain't living long like this
                 A
Can't live at all like this, can I baby?
   E
He slipped the handcuffs on behind my back
E
And left me reeling on a steel reel rack
              D 
They got'em all in the jailhouse baby
             A
Ain't living long like this
A             
Can't live at all like this; Can I baby?

Verse 2:

A 
Grew up in Houston off of Wayside Drive, 
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
A                D
Ain't living long like this
              A
Can't live at all like this; Can I baby?
    E 
You know the story how the wheel goes 'round
E
Don't let them take you to the man down town
            D
Can't sleep at all in a jailhouse baby
            A
Ain't living long like this, 
Can't live at all like this;  Can I baby?

Verse 3:
  
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
Ain't living long like this, 
Can't live at all like this;  Can I baby?

You know the story about the jailhouse rock, 
Don't want to do it but just don't get caught
They got'em all in the jailhouse baby 
Ain't living long like this
Can't live at all like this, can I baby?
