In the Jailhouse Now

I was thinking about a recording I have on CD of Doc Watson performing an old tune usually credited to Jimmie Rodgers, called In the Jailhouse Now – so I popped onto the YouTube machine to see if there are any other interesting performances of this standard. I found this wonderful version featuring Webb Pierce and friends….

Of course there are many other tunes about doing time. The Everly Brothers did a nice version of this next tune, but digging a bit deeper I found a lovely rendition by Jason and Pharis Romero – I’m Here to get my Baby out of Jail

This could be a very long post, but I’ll limit it to one more. Here are Social Distortion covering Folsom Prison Blues

Homework: check out Was (not Was) – Hi Dad, I’m in Jail
