Peter Frampton: Show Me The Way (1976)



Peter Frampton and band perform “Show Me the Way,” which was a huge hit in 1976. If you were around then, you noticed that it received a lot of airplay on the radio. It is the third track on Frampton Comes Alive!, a double live album. The song is prominent for the use of the talk box effect.

Show Me the Way
by Peter Frampton

I wonder how you’re feeling
There’s ringing in my ears
And no one to relate to ’cept the sea
Who can I believe in?
I'm kneeling on the floor
There has to be a force
Who do I phone?
The stars are out and shining
But all I really want to know

Oh won’t you show me the way
I want you to show me the way

Well, I can see no reason
You’re living on your nerves
When someone drops a cup and I submerge
I’m swimming in a circle
I feel I'm going down
There has to be a fool to play my part
Someone thought of healing
But all I really want to know

Oh won’t you show me the way
I want you to show me the way
I want you day after day

I wonder if I'm dreaming
I feel so unashamed
I can’t believe this is happening to me
I watch you when you’re sleeping
And then I want to take your love

Oh won't you show me the way
I want you to show me the way
I want you day after day
