Shut up and Talk to Me - Guy Clark Lyrics

Guy Clark CHORDS

Shut up and Talk to Me

Love is never gonna be a solid bet
It’s kinda like workin’ without a net
Don’t be afraid to let your feelin’s out
That’s what lovin’ is all about
Come on Baby and give me a break
It’s how do you feel, not what do you think
Stop rattlin’ your keys
Shut up and talk to me

You know I’ve known you long enough to know
There’s nothin’ you can hide that still don’t show
You ain’t foolin’ anyone but you
When you put me through what you put me through
Come on Honey and tell me the truth
Gimme chicken fried steak, not a Baby Ruth
I’m not that hard to please
Shut up and talk to me
Shut up and talk to me


You can talk about the weather
Till it drives me nits
You can rattle on about
Why, who, what
A little conversation
Wouldn’t hurt that much
A little somethin’
With a human touch

Now, if you’re hurtin’, Baby, tell me so
If you need attention let me know
I’m not the one that you’re hidin’ from
It doesn’t matter what the ever you done
You can have your cake and eat it too
That’s the kinda stuff I want from you
How hard can it be
Shut up and talk to me
Shut up and talk to me
