Bbm Bm                                 Bbm Bm
Warden threw a party in the county jail, 
                                       Bbm Bm
Prison band was there they began to wail,
                                          Bbm Bm
Band was jumpin' down, they began to swing, 

should've heard those jailbirds sing,


      Em                     Bm
Let's rock, everybody, let's rock, 
     F#m                    Em
Everybody in the whole cell block,
Bm                           Bbm Bm x 2 (Start Again)
Dancing to the Jailhouse Rock.

Spider Murphy played on the saxophone, 
Little Joe was blowing on the slide trombone,
Drummer boy from Illinois went crash, boom, bang,
Whole rhythm section was the Purple Gang,


Break: Bm Em D6 B F#m Em Bm A E/B E B E B E B Bb

Sad sack was a sitting on a block of stone, 
Over in the corner weeping all alone,
Warden said, ďBuddy, don't you be no squareĒ, 
Can't find a partner use a wooden chair",


Well, Shifty said to Henry, "For Heaven's sake
No one's looking now, chance to make a break",
Bugsy turned to Henry and he said, "Nix, nix,
I wanna stick around a while and get my kicks",


Bbm Bm      Bbm Bm      Bbm Bm          Bbm Bm
Letís rock, letís rock, hey letís rock, letís rock,
Bbm Bm                         Bbm Bm            
Dancing to the jailhouse rock, hey hey hey yeah,
Bbm Bm
Letís rock, letís rock, hey hey, letís rock,
Bbm Bm           Bm E/B Bm
Letís rock, yeah,
