Fish in the jailhouse

by Tom Waits


Peoria Johnson told Dirty Ol´ Joe
I can break out of any old jail, you know
The bars are iron, the walls are stone
All I need me is an old fishbone

Fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse
Fish in the jailhouse tonight

[?] hammerhead shark
Well, a steelhead salmon or a mud bank carp
I said, one side dull, and then the other side sharp
And on Saturday night I´ll be in Central Park

Fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse
Fish in the jailhouse tonight

Ask Little Slow Jackson, on a forty-four trip
Ask Whipperfield[?] Farraday, ask what I did
From the jail to the city, there´s a rollin´ fog
From Natchez(2) to Kenosha, runnin´ down to New York

They´re serving fish in the jailhouse tonight
All right (all right), oh boy (oh boy)
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse tonight
All right (all right), oh boy (oh boy)
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse tonight
All right (all right), oh boy (oh boy)
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse
Fish in the jailhouse tonight

Fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse tonight, all right, oh boy
They´re serving fish in the jailhouse
Fish in the jailhouse tonight
