OLD SHOWBOAT (Marijohn Wilkin / Fred Burch) Stonewall Jackson - 1963 I blew into Dallas feelin' kinda low Thought I'd make me a bit of change at the rodeo Heard the line boss sayin' you o'nery cowpokes Fifteen bales to any man who can ride Showboat (Who can ride Showboat) Showboat, you old cuss I'm gonna ride you or I'll bust Hold the reins, watch the change Turn him loose, that cayuse I'm gonna ride They put me in the saddle, the reins were in my hand Then I saw her sittin' there a-watchin' from the stands She was kinda pretty, a blonde with big blue eyes I could see it hurt her so to see me have to ride (See me have to ride) Showboat, that old cuss I'm gonna ride him or I'll bust Hold the reins, watch the change Turn him loose, that cayuse I'm gonna ride He bucked me once a-runnin', then he looked me in the eye I slid down around his neck reachin' for the sky Then he sent me flyin' like a little bird Lord, I think when I came down I ate ten pounds of dirt (Ate ten pounds of dirt) Showboat, you old cuss I'm gonna ride you or I'll bust Hold the reins, ain't it a shame That cayuse done throwed me loose and broke my leg I woke up in the General, feelin' kinda hurt Till I found that blue eyed blonde turned out to be my nurse She fixed me up with patches and love I thought was free Till she said, "Now cowboy, you're gonna marry me" (Gonna marry me) Showboat, you old cuss You done fixed me up much worse Hold the reins, ain't it a shame I'm getting married and old Showboat you're to blame I'm getting married and old Showboat you're to blame I'm getting married and old Showboat you're to blame (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - August 2011)
