Play Song Show Me A Little Shame

You've been looking at me just a little too long
Now I can never look the same
Blindness and kindness there's no difference in the two
When I can no longer see the good in you

Won't you show me a little shame

I'm a gentle man, lookin' for a gentle woman
So called ladies, they keep breakin' my heart
Showed me a house, showed me a home
Showed me how it could all fall apart

Won't you show me a little shame

I wake up in the morning more tired than before I slept
I get through cryin' and I'm sadder than before I wept
I get through thinking and the thoughts have left my head
I get through speaking and I can't remember a word I said

You change your mind so many times
I wonder if you have a mind at all
I'd rather be by myself
Than to have your lonesome company come to call

Won't you show me a little shame
