I blew into Dallas feelin' kinda low thought I'd make me a bit of change at the rodeo
Heard the lineboss sayin' you on'ry 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 chains turn him loose that cayuse I'm gonna ride
They put me in the saddle the rein here in my hand
Then I saw her sittin' there a watchin' from the stands
She was kind of 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 chains turn him loose that cayuse I'm gonna ride
He bugged me once from 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
