Old Showboat
Recorded by Stonewall Jackson
Written by Marijohn Wilkin and Fred Burch

C
I blew into Dallas feelin' kinda low
G7 C
Thought I'd make me a bit of change at the rodeo

Heard the line boss sayin' you ornery cowpokes
G7 C
Fifteen bills to any man who can ride Showboat

D7 G7
(Who can ride Showboat) Showboat you old cuss
D7
I'm gonna ride you or I'll bust

Hold the reins watch the chains
G7
Turn him loose that Cayuse I'm gonna ride

C
They put me in the saddle the reins were in my hand
G7 C
Then I saw her sittin' there watchin' from the stands

She was kinda pretty a blond with big blue eyes
G7 C
I could see it hurt her so to see me have to ride

D7 G7
(To see me have to ride) Showboat that old cuss
D7
I'm gonna ride him or I'll bust

Hold the reins watch the chains
G7
Turn him loose that Cayuse I'm gonna ride

C
He bucked me once a-runnin' then he looked me in the eye
G7 C
I slid down around his neck reachin' for the sky

Then he sent me flyin' like a little bird
G7 C
Lord I think when I came down I ate ten pounds of dirt

D7 G7
(Ate ten pounds of dirt) Showboat you old cuss
D7
I'm gonna ride you or I'll bust

Hold the reins ain't it a shame
G7
That Cayuse done throwed me loose and broke my leg

C
I woke up in the General feelin' kinda hurt
G7 C
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
G7 C
Till she said now cowboy you're gonna marry me

D7 G7
(Gonna marry me) Showboat you old cuss
D7
You done fixed me up much worse

Hold the reins ain't it a shame
G7
I'm getting married and Old Showboat you're to blame

D7 G7
I'm getting married and Old Showboat you're to blame
