There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I'm pretty iffy on the lyrics so suggestions are encouraged and appreciated. I can only find one recording of
the song and some of it just isn't very clear to me.

Edit: Thanks to AcidLizard for editing the words now that the official lyrics are out!

Capo 5. 


[Verse 1]

C/G
Every time it rains, it pours,
  C/G                                  Dm      Dm
I pray it rains just a little more on me. 
G
‘Cause I’m the guy who never cries, 
G                               C/G       C/G
And I gotta’ keep my reputation clean.
    C/G                              C/G
And here’s a helpful tip, the rain administered,
                  C/G                             Dm         Dm
In raindrops may help to hide the tears a little more.
    G
But I’m the guy who never cries
 G
Looks up at the sky with hopeful eyes
  G                              C/G      C/G
Hoping when it finally rains it pours.


[Chorus]

           C/G
I’m just a showboat.
C/G
Won’t catch me crying, no.
C/G                             Dm        Dm
Won’t catch me showing any hurt.
           G
I’m just a showboat.
G
Pretending I can stay afloat. 
G                                C/G      C/G
Pretending I’m not sinking over her.


[Verse 2]

    C/G
And every time the sun goes down
  C/G                                   Dm      Dm
I pray the sunlight takes the sound as well.
    G
And into new arms I lie
    G                          C/G      C/G
And I can keep the pain all to myself.
   C/G
No light to see me shakin',
   C/G
No sound to hear how I may break and, 
 C/G                                   Dm      Dm
No sound to hear the teardrops hit the floor
       G
Which is why a guy who never cries 
G
Stays up all night with tired eyes
G                                C/G      C/G
Hoping when it finally rains, it pours. 


[Chorus]

           C/G
I’m just a showboat.
C/G
Won’t catch me crying, no.
C/G                             Dm        Dm
Won’t catch me showing any hurt.
           G
I’m just a showboat.
G
Pretending I can stay afloat. 
G                                C/G      C/G
Pretending I’m not sinking over her.


[Instrumental Break]

C/G C/G C/G Dm Dm G G C/G C/G C/G C/G


[Bridge]

             C/G
Look at that showboat.
C/G
Old king thunderbolt.
   C/G
Mister Le Bon Temps Rouler the
C/G
Only dog in every fight
   C/G
The only guy who’d dynamite
   C/G
The only guy who never cries
   C/G
He's never lonely all the time
F
See him dancing up on tables
G
Shaunas, Lisas, Ethels, Mabels
G
Waiting for a drop of rain
G
To fall and let him hide the pain
G
Fall and keep his boat afloat
G
Pretend that he’s not sinking, no
G                                  C/G      C/G
Pretend that he ain’t sinking over her. 
C/G                                C/G
Pretend that he ain’t sinking over her.
