I'll Show Me Lyrics

Rodney Crowell – I'll Show Me Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It's Lady's Night at the Blue Gazelle
Local talent looks alive and well
All dressed up with my slack britches on
I don't get lucky, man, there's something wrong

Caddo Pool Hall down the Rue De Nowhere
Eight shots loaded, yeah man I've been there
"Hey, watch this" is what I said to the pool shark
"I can make it shooting in the dark"

[Chorus 1]
A hundred dollars on an eight-ball call shot
Can't scratch now, 'cause that's all I've got
I'll show me
I'll show me

[Verse 2]
Man seeking unemployment
No gig too big to blow
Self-destruct for own enjoyment
Another knucklehead who can't say no

Blame a woman for the way I am
Much too easy, no thank you, ma'am
How'd I ever get this far, you might ask
I'm here to tell you it was no small task

[Chorus 2]
I don't need a map to show me where
I should be, 'cause I don't care
I'll show me
I'll show me

[Verse 3]
I kind of see myself as a young Richard Burton
Reading Dylan Thomas to some Welsh coquette
Drinking whiskey in a Swansea tavern
Me and trouble are a sure-fire bet

Well, how 'bout this then: I'm a suave bullfighter
Or maybe a war correspondent for the bbc
Why, aye man my load feels lighter
Another Jameson should set me free

[Chorus 3]
I don't want to have to feel or think
Bartender, pour me one more drink
I'll show me
I'll show me

[Chorus 4]
Ain't it always like the old man said
You keep it simple or you'll wind up dead
I'll show me
I'll show me
I'll show me
I'll show me
