STEP INSIDE THIS HOUSE (STEP INSIDE MY HOUSE) (Guy Clark) (1971) That picture hangin' on the wall Was painted by a friend He gave it to me all down and out When he owed me ten Now it doesn't look like much I guess But it's all that's left of him And it sure is nice from right over here When the light's a little dim Step inside my house Babe I'll sing for you a song I'll tell you 'bout where I've been It shouldn't take too long I'll show you all the things I own My treasures you might say Couldn't be more'n ten dollars worth But they brighten up my day Here's a book of poems I got From a girl I used to know I guess I read it front to back Fifty times or so It's all about the good life And stayin' at ease with the world It's funny how I love that book And I never loved that girl Hold this piece of glass Up to the light comin' through the door It's a prism glass I found on the road Can you see that little rainbow Well it's not really a prism I guess It just broke in a funny way I found it on my way from Texas Headed for L.A. This guitar was given me By old man Thomas Gray It's not too much to look at But I pick it every day It's been across the country Four or five times I guess Between me and old man Tom It never got much rest Well that's about all I own And all I care to I guess Except this pair of boots And that funny yellow vest And that leather jacket and leather bag And hat hangin' on the wall Just so it's not too much to carry Could I see you again next Fall ***** As sung by Lyle Lovett : Step inside this house, girl I'll sing for you a song I'll tell you 'bout just where I've been It shouldn't take too long I'll show you all the things that I own My treasures, you might say Couldn't be more than ten dollars worth, but They brighten up my day That picture hangin' on the wall Was painted by a friend He gave it to me all down and out When he owed me ten It doesn't look like much, I guess But it's all that's left of him And it sure is nice from right over here When the light's a little dim This book of poems was given me By a girl I used to know I guess I read it front to back Fifty times or so It's all about the good life And stayin' at ease with the world It's funny how I love that book And I never loved that girl Now you hold this piece of glass Up to the light that's shinin' through the door It's a prism glass, I found it on the road Can't you see that tiny rainbow It's not really a prism, I guess It just kinda broke a funny way I was on my way through Houston And I was headed for L.A. This guitar was given me By old man Thomas Gray It's not too much to look at But I play it every day It's been across the country Four or five times I guess Between me and old man Tom It never got much rest Well that's just about all I own And all I care to, I guess Except this pair of boots, maybe And that funny yellow vest And that leather jacket, and that leather bag And that hat hangin' on the wall Just so it's not too much to carry babe Could I see you again next fall *****
