Fun Autry Fact:

According to a 1948 Life magazine article, "if [Gene's records] were all shipped to one place, [they] would make up a freight train solid with Western songs and be more than a mile long."

In and Out the Jail House
from Wagon Team (1952)

Gene Autry teases the Marshal with the song "In and Out the Jail House" from the 1952 Columbia Pictures film Wagon Team. If the tune sounds familiar, it is because it is based on the traditional songs "In and Out the Window" and "Polly Wolly Doodle."
