Ainít Liviní Long Like This
By Waylon Jennings


A
I looked for trouble and found it son
A
Straight down the barrel of a lawmanís gun
A
I try to run but I donít think I can
A
You make one move and youíre a dead man
             D
Ainít liviní long like this
A
I canít live at all like this can I baby
E
He slipped the cuffs on behind my back
E
Then left me freezing on a steel rail rack
         D 
They got Ďem all in the jailhouse baby
             A
Ainít liviní long like this
A
Canít live at all like this, can I baby


Grew up in Houston off a wayside drive
Son of a carhop in some all-night dive
Dad drove a stock car to an early death
All I remember was a drunk manís breath
Ainít liviní long like this
Canít live at all like this can I baby
We know the story how the wheel goes Ďround
Donít let Ďem take you to the man downtown
Canít sleep at all in the jailhouse baby
Ainít liviní long like this
Canít live at all like this, can I baby

Instrumental

I live for Angel, sheís the roadhouse queen
Make Texas Ruby look like Sandra Dee
I want to love her but I donít know how
Iím at the bottom of the jailhouse now
Ainít liviní long like this
Canít live at all like this, can I baby
You know the story Ďbout the jailhouse rock
Go on and do it just donít get caught
They got Ďem all in the jailhouse, baby
Ainít liviní long like this
I canít live at all like this, can I baby

Instrumental

A couple lyrical errors, but I have heard Waylon sing variations to the lyrics, so no big deal. Sounds good.
