The Show Ponies
Capo on 4th fret. G I ain't too good at choppin' wood, But my daddy said I should. Emin G I need a woman with a nice strong back, Child-bearin' hips and a one room shack. C G I'm a hard, hard worker every day; Dirty hands and a little pay. I get up early and I get back late. G I ain't too good at matching clothes, wearing heels and panty hose. Emin G I need a man that's sensitive; Stoic and contemplative. C G A scholar and a gentleman. A caller with strong arms to hold me in. Emin C G So what if we're not everything Emin C G our mothers and our fathers expect us to be. Amin C G Could I be the one who's in your dreams, Amin C G Could I be the one who you redeem? G I've gotten good at acting sweet, but it's hard to admit defeat. Emin G I'm prim and proper and put together. I'm sick and sore, under the weather. C G Got friends in places high and low, learned things I didn't want to know, been lifted up just to be let go. G I'm getting good at actin' tough, but I haven't gotten good enough. Emin G I want to be on the silver screen, I'm a kind-hearted man that's often mean. C G I'm a lover and a fighter; I'm a worker and a writer; I am a dreamer woken up by fits of rage. G Been trying hard to understand what it means to be a man, Emin G And every time I fall in love, I hug and kiss then push and shove. C G I'm solid then I'm soft and then, I'm gone and then I'm back again. I am a saint but my heart's filled with sin.
