about

Also available on CD!

The Men They Couldn't Hang's music always sprang from a sense of what should be. They have a perma presence, an intangible essence, an understanding that goes beyond Poguetry. Swill is one half of the pulse that makes them beat still. Proper name, Phil Odgers, this is his first solo excursion into roots. Released in 2004 'The Day After' was a welcome and very well received debut album. Recorded in a lively 'Low-Fi' evironment, this album takes the listener on one heck of a ride. Hold tight everyone!!

Track Name: In The Jailhouse Now
I had a friend named Ramblin' Bob
Who used to steal gamble and rob
He thought he was the smartest guy in town
But I found out last Monday
That Bob got locked up Sunday
They've got him in the jailhouse way down town
He's in the jailhouse now he's in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice to stop playin' cards and shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

He played a game called poker pinoccle with Dan Yoker
But shooting dice was his greatest game
Now he's downtown in jail nobody to go his bail
The judge done said that he refused a fine
He's in the jailhouse now he's in the jailhouse now
I told him once or twice to stop playin' cards and shootin' dice
He's in the jailhouse now

I went out last Tuesday met a gal named Susie
Said I was the swellest guy around
We started spending my money
Then she started calling me honey
We took in every cabaret in town
We're in the jailhouse now
We're in the jailhouse now
I told that judge right to his face
You'know I don't like this place
We're in the jailhouse now
