      About "Old Showboat"

      Lyrics for Stonewall Jackson - "Old Showboat"

      I blew into Dallas feeling kind-a low
      Thought I'd make me a bit of change at the rodeo
      Heard the line boss saying "You ornery cowpoke
      Fifteen bills 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 chains
      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 sitting there watching from the stands
      She was kind-a pretty a blonde with big blue eyes
      I could see it hurt her so, to see me have to ride (To see me have to ride)
      Showboat that old cuss I'm gonna ride him or I'll bust

      Hold the reins watch the chains
      Turn him loose that Cayuse I'm gonna ride
      He bucked me once a-running then he looked me in the eye
      I slid down around his neck reaching for the sky

      Then he sent me flying 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 feeling kind-a hurt
      Till I found that blue-eyed blonde turned out to be my nurse
      She fixed me 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
